Please join City of Madison Real Estate and Fire Department staff to discuss the proposal of a far-east side Fire Station on Wednesday, April 29 at 6:30 pm at the East District Police Station Community Room, 809 S. Thompson Drive.

Several years ago, a new fire station was slated to be built in our area to preserve the fire department's benchmark of a 5-minute response time for ambulance and fire truck service. The original lot was to be part of the school site in the Door Creek neighborhood, but the school district has failed to reach agreement with the city and we have gone shopping elsewhere.

There is a lot for sale in the Metro Tech area (southeast corner of Milwaukee St. and Sprecher Rd.) between Towne Center Dr. and the interstate. It meets the response time goal, has proper access, an approved use in the neighborhood plan, a suitable price, a willing seller and buyer.
