ACC Gov seeks input on Fire Station 35 relocation to update facility and serve greater area

Kevin Price Construction

The Athens Clarke County Government is seeking input on revised site selection criteria for the relocation of Fire Station #5.

Site selection criteria guides the selection of potential locations for Fire Station #5. Currently, the fire station is located at Whit Davis Road and Cedar Shoals Drive and is being relocated in order to update the facility and serve a greater area.

A bid to decide the location of Fire Station #5 was rejected by the Mayor and Commission in November of 2023.

Athens Clarke County residents can share their thoughts at a drop-in public meeting on Thursday, March 28th at Fire Station #7, located at 2350 South Barnett Shoals Road, from 5:00 to 7:00 PM. The county government is also seeking input through an online survey accessible at Fire & Emergency Services | Athens-Clarke County, GA - Official Website. The survey is open until April 7th.

About $6 million has been allocated through the county’s SPLOST fund for the relocation.
