Moraga-Orinda Fire District invites public to open house to discuss replacement of Station 43

Posted: 03-Nov-2011

The Moraga-Orinda Fire District has started a planning process to replace Station 43 which is located at 20 Via Las Cruces in Orinda. The existing fire station, which is over sixty years old, needs to be rebuilt because it does not meet seismic standards, modern fire apparatus does not fit in the apparatus bays, and the living area does not adequately accommodate mixed gender staffing. The old station will be torn down and a new station will be built in its place.

“The District is interested in the public’s input relating to this project,” said Fire Chief Randall Bradley, “We will be holding several public meetings during the course of the project to provide information and receive comments about the design of the station.”

The first of these meetings will be held on November 17, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. at 20 Via Las Cruces (Station 43) in Orinda. The purpose of the open house is to allow the neighborhood and the community to view the existing station, discuss the planning process, and meet the Fire Chief, his reconstruction team and the project architects. Additional community meetings will be held and the public will be welcome to participate.
