I heard the site was going to be located on Westinghouse Blvd @ Raleigh Blvd. There are talks of a proposal which includes a fire station at the location. It would replace existing #11 to accommodate a new aerial truck since Pierce can no longer build one that would meet the height restrictions of existing #11.

They got a LONG way to go. Red tape is thicker than Santa’s beard.
