Project Background
Fire Station 74 will be located on the southwest corner 53rd Street and Woodsonia Drive. The size of the station will be approximently 9,135 square feet including two apparatus bays.

Fire Station 74 is included in the City of Shawnee 2017-2022 Capital Improvement Plan. Significant growth in the northwestern part of the City has created an increased demand for fire services. The large geographic area to be served combined with limited mutual aid options has resulted in longer than desirable response times to the above part of the community. A mill rate increase to fund the project was approved by the City's Governing Body.
