The long process of planning and designing a new headquarters fire station may move forward at Tuesday’s meeting of the Garden Grove City Council.
On the agenda is an amendment to an earlier agreement with Griffin Structures, Inc., to provide the preparation of construction documents. The location might be on Euclid Street just south of Acacia Parkway in the space where the Black Angus restaurant did business for many years.
Garden Grove purchased the building and land several years ago with the stated intent of building a new main station there. Currently, the fire department shares space in the two-story public safety building on Acacia Parkway in the Civic Center area. The need for more space by the police department is a factor of exploring the possibility of the GGFD leaving its “roommate” and getting its own facility a short distance away.
The cost of the preparation of the construction documents and drawings is set at $249,000, with a deadline of March 31, 2014. The total price of the agreement is $611, 250, including previous work done.
