We have received a few questions regarding our previous post on the station project at Cy Bingham Park. While the feedback has been positive, we realized perhaps we got a little ahead of ourselves and should take a step back and explain how we acquired this property.
Over four years ago, we began exploring site locations to accommodate our growth and support a new fire station. A main factor in this approach, was to find a location which would support us for the next fifty years.
One area we explored in the beginning of this project was the Cy Bingham Park property. Utility locations were readily available, there is level ground, and good access, were positive focal points that matched our vision. So, we reached out to Shanda Asset Management and began discussions on a possible land donation. Over the course of the next four years we continued to pursue many avenues, always hoping the seed planted with Shanda would come to fruition. During that time, many other ideas were considered - The Gilchrist Mall, our Main Street Station location, our previous grounds in Gilchrist are just a few to name. With overall emphasis on fiscal responsibility, we felt it was necessary to explore many options - this was not always easy. All the while we realized it was imperative to not overburden our tax payers.
Fast forward four years; Shanda Asset Management has graciously donated ten acres at the site of old Cy Bingham Park to Crescent Fire District. We plan to build our new fire station at this location. Shanda’s donation is providing us with a means to build our future and is appreciated beyond what words can express.
While we still have a long way to go, we continue exploring financing options, grants, loans and everything in between. We hope you will join us in our excitement for our future and the ability to improve our service to the community.
On a side note, we have moved most of our personnel to the Main Fire Station in Crescent, for the time being. Please, if you have questions or just want to come say hi, stop in. Of course COVID precautions apply, but let us know what you think about this project.
Thank you for your time and support,
Fire Chief ... See MoreSee Less
