A new 11,064 square-foot communications center is currently being built on the Northeast corner of South Peek Road and Beechnut Street, next door to land allocated for new Fire Station 95. The facility will be sized in anticipation of population growth and the corresponding increase in 911 call volume over the next several years throughout the region. The site will contain a dedicated self-supporting radio tower and an elevated structure capable of withstanding winds of up to 200 MPH. The site will also contain multiple backup electrical generators with different fuel sources to guarantee operations at all times.
