HENDERSON COUNTY – The Hendersonville Planning Board Monday gave the green light to a new city fire station planned for 604 Sugarloaf Road, recommending the rezoning sought by planners.

Final approval for the rezoning and permit will come before City Council next month.

The nearly 11,000-square-foot firehouse proposed for the 11.56-acre site will be located at the front of the property. A new 150-foot telecommunication tower will also be built.

The firehouse and tower will join a 29,675-square-foot warehouse and two 3,302-square-foot sheds already on the property.

“The existing warehouse and shed buildings are vacant,” Planning Director Susan Anderson told the board. “The new telecommunication tower will accommodate five antennas for the purpose of transmitting emergency services communications and water meter communications.”

“The site plan shows the addition of a 10,906-square-foot free-standing building to the site,” Anderson said. “Along with accommodating the basic needs of a fire station, the building will include a multi-purpose room with seating for 45 persons available to city staff and the general public for special events and training.”

The site plan denotes 42 parking spaces, and the city aims to improve the site’s stormwater management by replacing compacted gravel areas with grass.

This move allowed all of the antique apparatus to be housed in one location and also allows a space for the 5th Battalion at Fire Station 9.
