City of Williamsburg Breaks Ground on New Fire Station

The City of Williamsburg broke ground on its new fire station on Friday, April 22, 2022.  

Friday’s groundbreaking ceremony marked the start of the construction phase of the $14.5 million project to build a 31,000-square-foot fire station where the old one previously stood, 440 N. Boundary St.

The ceremony featured remarks from Mayor Douglas G. Pons, Interim Fire Chief Larry Snyder, and Williamsburg Volunteer Fire Department President David Stansbury.  

“The Williamsburg Fire Station is a community building. The safety of our residents, visitors, and, through our mutual aid agreement with the counties, Greater Williamsburg, is always our top priority,” Mayor Pons said. “A state-of-the-art facility in the heart of downtown Williamsburg provides our Fire and EMS personnel with the equipment and accommodations they deserve, and in turn helps us ensure the safety of this community.” 

State Sen. Monty Mason and Del. Amanda Batten, as well as all five members of City Council, were in attendance.  

Demolition of the former fire station began on Feb. 28, 2022, and concluded in early March. 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.
