Plans are to build a new TVF&R fire station on McEwan Road, {img:196362}east of I-5, next to a current U-Haul facility.

SUBMITTED GRAPHIC - Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue hopes to build a new fire station next to the U-Haul facility located at 7100 SW. McEwan Road.The Tualatin City Council has approved a conditional-use permit to allow Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue to build a fire station on a lot surrounded on three sides by the U-Haul facility at 7100 S.W. McEwan Road.

The proposed 9,500-square-foot station would serve residents in Tualatin and adjacent Rivergrove, a city with a population of 300, serving residents east of Interstate 5.

City planners told the council that TVF&R has acquired the rights to the 1.2-acre piece of property but has yet to purchase the land.

Frank Angelo, a principal with Angelo Planning Group, the firm representing TVF&R, said the station would initially have a staff of four firefighters, a number that would increase to six at some point.

The fire station, which would be known as Station 39, would include two bays and a 600-square foot community room open to the public.

Even though the conditional-use was approved, the station would still have to go through an architectural review process with a public hearing. Angelo said his firm would seek that review process within the next month.

Rivergrove Mayor Heather Kibbey said her Clackamas County city, a small portion of which extends into Washington County, is supportive of construction of the station.
