Last year, North Mason voters approved a fire bond measure to build a new Headquarters Fire Station for the North Mason Regional Fire Authority. The site of the Authority’s new Fire Station will remain in our neighborhood and be built right next door to the existing Fire Station at 490 NE Old Belfair Highway. When the new Fire Station is complete, the Fire Authority will lease its current Fire Station to Mason County, housing the north precinct of the Mason County Sheriff’s Office and provide space for Mason County’s Department of Emergency Services.
Since the passage of the bond, the Fire Authority has been working hard on the design of the new Fire Station. On Thursday, November 19, 2020, the Fire Authority hosted a video-conference with immediate neighbors of the new Fire Station. The presentation, led by our design team from TRICO Construction and Architects West, provided a preview look at the Fire Station design work and captured input from our neighbors regarding the design and build. Also included was an open discussion addressing the impacts of having a Fire Station nearby, including the potential effect on community aesthetics and traffic.
For those immediate neighbors who were unable to attend this presentation, and for all of our North Mason residents, we have provided a video recording of that presentation below.
