The city of Manhattan Beach is preparing to spend $9.7 million for the construction of the Fire Station No.2 Replacement Project. This project involves the complete demolition and reconstruction of Manhattan Beach Fire Station No. 2, located on Manhattan Beach Boulevard at Rowell Avenue.
In an effort to expedite the completion of the project and achieve cost savings, the city is considering three different alternatives related to constructing a temporary fire station.
The choices are:
- Concurrent construction of a temporary and permanent Fire Station No. 2 to complete the station in 15 months at a cost savings of $150,000;
- Housing all firefighters at Fire Station No. 1 for the duration of construction to complete the station in 14 months at a cost savings of $600,000;
- (Original Plan): Construction of a temporary fire station followed by a permanent fire station to complete the station in 21 months at a $0 cost saving.
Residents now have the chance to weigh in on which of those options they believe would be best. You may register your opinion here.
The deadline for the feedback is August 16, 2021 at 12:00 PM. The City Council will be discussing these alternatives at the August 24 City Council meeting.
