HOLLADAY — The Holladay Planning Commission is holding a public hearing on Tuesday, June 26 at 7 p.m. to discuss preliminary concept plans for a new fire station.
The current station, at 4625 S. Holladay Blvd. was built approximately 60 years ago. A 2009 report found a cracking bearing wall is getting worse since it was discovered in 2003. It also stated the existing station is at risk of catastrophic collapse in the event of an earthquake.
The new fire station will be located on 2210 E. Murray-Holladay Road on the property located across the street from Olympus Junior High School. The city has pursued funding options for a new fire station over the past several years, with little success in this economic environment. However, it recently was able to refinance the existing City Hall bond at a lower interest rate to fund the new fire station without an additional tax burden to residents.
The meeting will be at 4580 S. 2300 East.
