The Varsity Fire Station has reached the end of its life cycle after 46 years. A new fire station is needed to meet the growing needs of the community and surrounding area.

In spring 2018, The City plans to submit a land use re-designation application that will include provision for an affordable housing development and other services to the community.

The new facility will be built on City-owned land to the north of the existing facility at 3740 32 Ave N.W.

For updates on this project, please continue to check this page or call 311.
