The City of Meridian has received plans for Fire Station 8 and a new police precinct in northwest Meridian.

The two projects would neighbor each other on four acres of land. The fire station would sit at 4250 N. Owyhee Storm Ave. and the police precinct would be located at 4232 N. Owyhee Storm Ave.

The fire station would be approximately 11,200 square feet. It would include a kitchen, living quarters, restrooms, meeting, and office space, fitness and equipment areas.

The precinct would be about 11,000 square feet, with meeting and office space, interview rooms, briefing room, a break area, locker/fitness rooms, and a contained sally port with an intake room.

The application letter said the stations would provide ‘essential public safety services to the area.

The two buildings would share a generator enclosure and public parking. There would also be secured and unsecured employee parking and the precinct parking would be protected with fencing and a gate system.

The city already approved a new fire station and police substation in South Meridian earlier in the year as BoiseDev reported here.

The hearing for the fire station and precinct is on December 2.
