Offer input about May Valley fire station at open house
July 17, 2012
Residents can learn about a fire station planned for May Valley at a July 19 open house hosted by Fire District 10.
The district is the Eastside Fire & Rescue partner serving residents in Klahanie, May Valley, Mirrormont, Preston and Tiger Mountain in the Issaquah area, plus Carnation in rural King County.
Plans call for EFR crews from Fire Station 78, at 16135 S.E. 113th Place near Renton, to relocate to a modern facility at a more central location at Southeast May Valley Road and 207th Avenue Southeast after construction is complete.
Construction on the May Valley station could start next year.
The open house is at 7 p.m. at EFR headquarters, 175 Newport Way N.W. Participants can offer input and ask district commissioners questions about the project.
In April, district officials completed the process to issue $5.5 million in construction bonds to build the fire station and complete other projects throughout the district.
The district encompasses about 130 square miles and about 28,000 people.
In February, 64 percent of voters in the district approved a bond measure to generate the construction dollars.
