Concord Trustees are finalizing plans on a new Administration building and new fire stations. There are plans for two new fire stations, with a possible third in the near future.
As we understand it, this is a result of a professional study done to determine the needs of a growing township (20,000 people and going up) as it relates to current State fire fighting standards. [No word on current standards for Administration buildings]
The plan is to build the Administration Building and main fire department next to the current Township hall, which will remain in place for some future use. You may wish to attend the June 5th meeting at 7:30 pm. Here is their agenda….6-5-19-Agenda
Thank you to Andy Rose, Concord’s Administrator, for sending to us the following conceptual drawings illustrating the proposed fire stations and administration building for the township.
No final word yet on total costs for the projects, and the property tax increases that will be needed to pay for the very nice looking buildings.
When you couple this Township cost with the possibility of Riverside Schools looking to spend either $66.6 million to renovate the existing high school, or $100 million to build a brand new school, we may start to see Concord residents living on fixed incomes fleeing the community because the property taxes are pricing them out of their homes that they have worked all their lives to achieve.
