Montgomery announces project manager for the construction of a new fire station at Fairview Avenue and Court Street
MONTGOMERY – The City of Montgomery today announced Jacobs Engineering Group has been selected as the project manager for a new construction project to build a state-of-the-art fire station near the intersection of West Fairview Avenue and South Court Street.
The redevelopment project is part of Mayor Steven L. Reed’s Montgomery Forward initiative, which funds a litany of long-needed capital improvement projects. Through this program, the City of Montgomery is reinvesting $50 million into the core of its community, including public safety and public transportation. Montgomery Forward was made possible through Mayor Reed’s restructuring of municipal finances to save $16-$18 million in taxpayer dollars while generating new revenue for the City through sales of municipal bonds in March 2021.
“This project will improve quality of place and quality of life by allowing our firefighters to establish deeper connections to the residents they serve,” MF/R Chief Miford Jordan said. “Of course, our mission is to serve and protect the people of our city, and this new fire station will allow us to bring more resources to the area to do just that.”
Initial plans estimate the new Fairview Fire Station will offer approximately 20,000 square feet of space. It will be home to a new engine truck, enhanced EMS response, and other improvements. Additionally, the station will offer classroom space that will be available for the surrounding community to use.
