New Fire Station Update

Proposed design of the front of the new Grimes Fire Station building

We have some updates for the new fire station, which will now be called the Grimes Public Safety Center! First up is the design. At the November 14, 2023, meeting, City staff will present and discuss design updates with the Council. Following the discussion, the Council will consider a resolution authorizing City staff to proceed to the next steps in the design process. 

The second update is regarding the location. The new location being considered is at the intersection of SW County Line Rd and SW 6th St. This site is approximately 3.75 acres and has frontage along both SW County Line Road, and future SW 6th St. The original proposed location was at the current library building site at 1st St and James St. The new proposed site offers better opportunities for future growth and response times, but also allows for a more flexible and efficient design. The Council will need to approve a real estate purchase agreement to acquire the land. Make sure to follow project updates at
