The Sedona Fire District Governing Board unanimously approved the design for Station No. 6 between the Village of Oak Creek and Sedona.
The Governing Board met for a special meeting Thursday, Oct. 4, where it discussed the new station and listened to a presentation by LEA Architects on the building’s design. SFD Governing Board member Craig Dible was not present for the meeting.
SFD Fire Chief Kris Kazian said the station could be completed in March 2014 at a cost of $1.2 million to $1.5 million. Following consensus from the board, the architects will continue work on their designs for the station.
“It’s going to take three to four months, then we go to [requests for proposals] to award the bid, then we get on someone’s docket to start the process. We’re hoping by March of 2014 would be a good window to look at for potential opening,” Kazian said.
Village of Oak Creek resident Carolyn Fischer said she believed the new station would meet the needs of the community in a cost-effective manner.
