A ground breaking ceremony was held for Fire Station 15 on February 27, 2018, and construction is underway. The fire station is expected to be ready for occupancy in January 2019.

The new station is located in the Kennydale neighborhood on a city-owned parcel at 1404 North 30th Street, just west of I-405. The city will also utilize the site to design and construct a water reservoir to address long-identified needs for supply reliability, pressure surge control and to increase storage capacity in the Kennydale area for fire protection and domestic water use. Both activities are a collaboration of the Renton Regional Fire Authority and the city's facilities division and utility systems division.

Project Updates

September 27, 2018

Progress continues on construction of Fire Station 15 at 1404 North 30th Street, just west of I-405. The new fire station in the Kennydale neighborhood is expected to be complete by the end of the year, with the station fully operational in February.

The city will also utilize the site to construct a reservoir to address long-identified needs for water system improvements to provide supply reliability, pressure surge control and to increase storage capacity in the Kennydale area for fire protection and domestic water use. Construction of the reservoir is expected to begin in spring 2019 and last approximately 18 months.

The city will hire an artist to develop concepts for the mural to be painted on the reservoir. The artist will work with the Renton Municipal Arts Commission and the community to come up with the final mural design.

Schedule

Construction of the fire station began in February 2018 with occupancy scheduled for January 2019.

Reservoir construction is currently scheduled to begin in June 2018, lasting through December 2019.

Community Involvement

The city and RRFA worked closely with the community, providing updated information about the design and to solicit input at key points in the process.

The project team conducted outreach through community briefings and hosted a public meeting prior to submitting an environmental review and land use permit application.

Regular updates are sent via email and posted on this page.
