The Williamsburg Fire Department will host a ceremony for the groundbreaking of the new Williamsburg Fire Station at 10 a.m. Friday, April 22, 2022.
Demolition of the former fire station began on Feb. 28, 2022, and concluded in early March. A 31,000-square-foot station will be built on the same lot. David A. Nice Builders and architectural firms Guernsey-Tingle Architects and Stewart-Cooper-Newell Architects are the design-build team for this project. The new station is slated to open in the summer of 2023.
The ceremony will feature remarks from Mayor Douglas Pons.
“We are thrilled to invite the public to the groundbreaking of the Williamsburg Fire Station,” Mayor Pons said. “The old station served the City of Williamsburg well for more than 40 years. Soon this community and its first-responders will have a state-of-the-art fire station that is able to provide great service that protects this community for the next 40 years.”
