The recent start of construction on a more modern and more efficient Fire Station No. 1 in Downtown is just one of the many ways Arlington continues working to Champion Great Neighborhoods, which the City Council has identified as one of five key priorities. Great neighborhoods contribute to a higher quality of life and greater investment in our economy.

The two-story, 17,667-square-foot station will replace the previous Fire Station No. 1, which originally opened in 1954 and had gone through various remodels over the decades. The future facility, set to open next year, is designed to provide a better work and living space for Arlington’s firefighters. Arlington voters approved funding to rebuild Fire Station No. 1, which was the City’s oldest fire station, as part of the 2014 Bond Program.

You can read more about this project and much more in the latest edition of the Champion Great Neighborhoods newsletter. All quarterly City Council priority newsletters are produced in a digital formal, allowing for layers of additional video content and important links.

Other updates include information about how to keep Arlington’s waterways clean and healthy, how to access the City’s emergency home repair assistance and the housing rehabilitation programs, and a reminder from Atmos for homeowners to call 811 before digging projects.
