 Project updates

​Firehouse #30, located at 4707 Belle-Oaks Drive near Charlotte-Douglas International Airport, occupies a house that was built in 1955 and needs extensive renovation. This firehouse will be replaced with a new three-bay, two-story, all-electric firehouse to manage response volumes in the Beam Road/airport area. The new facility will be located on a three-acre site at 3019 Beam Road, across the street from the Police and Fire Training Academy. The 14,000-square-foot facility will also house a new all-electric fire truck to serve the community.

This project is in advanced planning & design are not yet funded for implementation. They are high-priority projects that are identified as candidates for potential future funding. This process of planning and design, which typically takes 12 to 18 months, will eventually produce a cost estimate and will be considered for inclusion in a future budget. Learn more about the Advanced Planning & Design Program.

​The existing firehouse #30 was originally designed and intended to be a temporary facility and is not adequate to continue functioning as a permanent facility. The new facility will provide adequate living quarters for firefighters and equipment, which will improve response time to calls.

​The project team will host a public meeting to engage and inform residents of the project. Meeting details will be shared on this page once they are determined.
