Aesthetics of proposed expansion, possible risk to park users cited as justification for alternate site

Plans for the expansion of the Fredonia Fire Department fire station have been slowly taking shape, but a new wrinkle in the process emerged at last week’s Village Board meeting.

Noting an ever-worsening space crunch and the increasing size of firefighting equipment, fire department officials have long contended new or expanded facilities are needed.

While initial talks focused on the construction of a new building, village leaders became concerned when a needs assessment noted that a new, 13,000-square-foot station would cost as much as $2.5 million.

The focus changed in September of 2015, when the Sheboygan-based Quasius Construction said it could meet the department’s needs and shave $1 million off that price tag by expanding the existing fire station on South Milwaukee Street.
