City to Press Forward with Fire Station Replacement

The City of Alameda is pressing forward with what it calls a long-term project to replace Fire Station #3 with a new station and emergency operations center. On June 5th of this year, Alameda voters rejected Measure C, a 30-year sales tax increase the city said would fund, among other things, the new station and operations center.

A 2009 study of the Alameda Fire Department conducted by the International City/County Management Association, never accepted by Alameda City Council, recommended closing Fire Station #3. The Alameda firefighters union disputed the conclusions of the study.

The City is starting the project with a feasibility study and a series of community meetings, the first of which is this Thursday at the Mastick Senior Center, 1155 Santa Clara Avenue, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

    Really? I just looked-why isn’t this meeting on the City Community Calendar? It’s not on the home page or newsroom page. This is less than 48 hrs notice and it conflicts with several other long-scheduled meetings of civic interest:the bi-monthly RAB meeting, Rec & Parks, to name a few. For all its boasting, the City manager’s office IS NOT doing a good job coordinating these various meetings. This is also how the meetings to vet the restriping of Shoreline Drive were held! Not transparent since we can’t be in 2 places at once!
