  2. Station 31 Under Construction (Call 720-989-2438 with concerns or questions)

    A Public Hearing will be held before the Greenwood Village Planning and Zoning Commission at Greenwood Village City Hall, 6060 South Quebec Street, Greenwood Village, CO Sept. 15, 2015, at 7 p.m.

    Approval is being requested for the following application:

    South Metro Fire Rescue Authority (“SMFRA”) is seeking “location, character and extent” review under C.R.S. section 31-23-209 for a new, approximately 12,000 square foot 2-story fire station (Station 31) at Orchard and Havana (5901 S. Havana).  This project was previously considered by the Planning and Zoning Commission and the City Council.  A lawsuit was filed by a neighboring landowner following the City approval of the Special Use Permit. Therefore, SMFRA requests that the City Planning and Zoning Commission review the plans pursuant to C.R.S. section 31-23-209. Colorado law requires local governments such as SMFRA to submit projects for approval to the local Planning and Zoning Commission.  To meet the directive of the statute the Planning and Zoning Commission is being asked to affirm the location character and extent of the previously approved plans (PZ-14-61).  The board for the Authority has final approval if the project is denied by the Commission.  Despite this ability to override the Commission’s disapproval, should that occur, SMFRA is interested in any additional input the public may have regarding this project.

    South Metro Fire Rescue has contracted with Adolphson and Peterson (A&P) as the general contractor for the project. A&P has developed a parking plan for the construction workers that limits the number of vehicles parked at the construction site. A&P will utilize “On Time” delivery of building materials as much as possible, to help mitigate the impacts of the construction process on the neighborhood.

    SMFRA has established a phone “hot line” for neighbors to report any worksite concerns. The phone number is 720-989-2438. If you are reporting a parking issue, please include a vehicle description, license plate number and contractor name if available.

    The Fire Engine and Medic unit housed at Station 31 will move to Station 35, located at Peoria Street and Briarwood Avenue, during the construction process. MetCom, South Metro Fire Rescue’s dispatch center, will utilize their computer aided dispatch system to ensure that the closest fire and medical units are dispatched to emergencies in District 31 during the construction process.
