Groundbreaking Ceremony for Cathedral City’s New Downtown Fire Station 411 Happens on October 10th
The City Council of Cathedral City, the City Urban Revitalization Corporation (C.U.R.C.) and Cathedral City Fire Department invite you to a “Groundbreaking Ceremony” on Thursday, October 10, 2019 at 8:00 a.m. for the new downtown Fire Station 411, to be built at the northwest corner of Buddy Rogers Avenue and Date Palm Drive in Cathedral City.
The $8.2 million state-of-the-art fire station will replace the current fire station located across the road, on the southwest corner of Buddy Rogers Avenue and Date Palm Drive, that has outlived its intended usage. The new Fire Station 411 has been designed for the next 50 years of service providing space for a 10-person emergency response crew. It will allow for a ladder truck, fire engine, and ambulance. The new station will include dorm facilities, kitchen, office space, and fitness center for firefighters to remain prepared for emergency responses. The new fire station expected completion date is October 2020.
Funding for the fire station came from land sale receipts in the downtown area with a large portion coming from Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians’ purchase of nearly 13 acres of land at the northwest corner of Date Palm Drive and East Palm Canyon Drive (HWY 111). The tribe plans to build a mixed-use gaming entertainment center that will include restaurants and retail uses.
