Allen City Council approved spending $194,000 to begin planning and design for Fire Station 6.
The new station will be located on the southwest corner of Watters Road and Ridgeview Drive. The site was chosen to improve response times and better serve the Allen community as new homes and businesses come to the SH 121 corridor.
This first phase of the project will include a floodplain analysis, land and tree survey, schematic design, cost estimating, design concept rendering and site plan approval through Allen’s Technical Review Committee.
“These site-planning steps will get us one step closer to a shovel-ready project, so we can move forward with a detailed construction plan,” explained Allen Fire Chief Jon Boyd.
Voters approved spending $9.945 million on the project in the 2016 bond election.
