North Columbia Fire Station

The new 3 bay North Columbia Fire Station is proposed in response to recent growth patterns and increasing call-demands for central Columbia and the Greater Columbia area. In a recent Harpers Choice Village board meeting, the Bureau of Facilities presented a new site concept to inspire community and civic pride with an environmentally friendly design. The site development includes the new fire station as well as an expansion of Cedar Lane Park behind Harper's Choice Middle school. The new fire station will be located off of Route 108 to provide easy and direct access for emergency and fire response. The station will have a sustainable design and will serve as a home away from home for firefighters, including bunk rooms, fitness, and locker rooms, a kitchen/ living space, offices, and support spaces.
