Former Fire Station 6 - Disposition
With a new Fire Station 6 under construction at 405 Martin Luther King Jr. Way S., the City of Seattle’s Department of Finance and Administrative Services (FAS) has initiated public outreach on the disposition of the soon-to-be former Fire Station 6 (located at 101 23rd Ave. S.). The new Fire Station 6 is expected to open in late 2012, at which time the former station will be vacated. FAS anticipates the property could be ready for disposition by early 2013, with a transaction completed by mid-2013.
On February 17, 2012, the Opportunity for Input community flier concerning the disposition of former Fire Station 6 was mailed to taxpayers and residents residing within a 1,000 foot radius of the former fire station, as well as to community groups and other interested parties. It is the first of many opportunities for the public to provide comment on disposition of former Fire Station 6.
All respondents now, or at any time during the process, will be placed on a contact list and receive future information as it becomes available. FAS has produced a Preliminary Report and Recommendation which:
FAS’ preliminary recommendation is that this property be sold through an open competitive process that reaches the maximum number of potential purchasers, and that will produce the highest return to the City.
The procedures and steps for evaluating reuse and disposition of excess City property ensure transparency of process, and that different ideas and proposals are considered and evaluated. Comment is not limited to the 30-day comment period but is taken throughout the process.
FAS proposes holding a single public meeting regarding the disposition of the former Fire Station 6 with adequate notice provided about the meeting to all parties who have submitted comments about reuse or disposition of Station 6. Community organizations in the area will also be provided with notice of this meeting.
This webpage will be updated as information becomes available.
