PENDLETON — With an architect, general contractor and construction manager already hired, the city of Pendleton is ready to share more information on the development of its new fire station.

Attendees to a Feb. 6 community meeting will receive an update on the construction timeline, the floor plan and a rendering of the new fire station, which will be located in the old St. Anthony Hospital parking lot on Southeast Court Avenue.

The audience will get presentations from Mackenzie, the Portland firm that’s designing the station, and McCormack Construction, the general contractor and construction manager for the project.

The new fire station is the centerpiece of a $10 million bond the city passed last May that will replace the fire department’s aging main station on 911 S.W. Court Ave. The city expects to break ground on the new station in May.

Pendleton Fire Chief Mike Ciraulo will also give an update on fire bond projects to the Pendleton City Council in an upcoming meeting on Tuesday.

Both meetings will be at Pendleton City Hall, 500 S.W. Dorion Avenue. The Feb. 6 informational meeting will be in the Community Room at 5:30 p.m. while Ciraulo’s update on Tuesday will be in the council chambers at 7 p.m.
