Project Information

The new Fire Station 9 Project includes the demolition of the existing site and the construction of a new 12,779 square foot, two-story fire station at 4101 Long Beach Boulevard. The new station will house eight on-duty firefighters in a 24-hour shift and includes one sleeping room for a trainee. The station is designed to accommodate a fire engine company, a rescue company and a battalion chief, as front-line responding units. In addition, there is apparatus bay space for a reserve Type 3 engine and staging area in the rear of the site for a fire truck. The bay is sized to allow other potential combinations of response companies in the future. The site will be redeveloped with concrete paving, site lighting, a trash enclosure, transformer, landscaping, fencing, and gates. On the west property line, there is a row of existing mature trees that will be protected in place. The balance of the project landscaping is designed to follow the city's landscape design requirements for drought-tolerant plant selection and low flow irrigation systems. The alley on the north side of the property will be widened two feet, six-inches toward the fire station property and will be reconstructed to the full width with underground utilities and new paving. Off-site improvements include a driveway apron onto Long Beach Boulevard and a new response apron at E. Randolph Place. A new traffic signal is planned for the intersection of E. Randolph Place and Long Beach Boulevard. The traffic signal will be able to be activated from the fire station to allow a clear response path onto Long Beach Blvd. In addition, the overhead power lines along Long Beach Blvd. will be undergrounded at the station frontage. The sidewalks along the Long Beach Boulevard and E. Randolph Place frontages will be replaced and new landscaping provided.

Project Funding

The Fire Station 9 Project is funded with $22,000,000 in future Measure A Bonds, $8,861,510 in Measure A funds, and $512,150 in General Capital funds.
