4/15/2019 – The City of Asheville has launched a visual preference survey on a planned Fire Station 13. In this survey on Open City Hall Asheville, participants will be asked to select up to three images that illustrate their preferred design styles.

The City of Asheville held a community meeting on March 11, 2019, to share information about a new fire station project planned for a property on Broadway Street near Mount Clare Avenue.

The purpose of this survey is to identify the design style preferences of the Asheville community for this new station. The information compiled from this survey will be used as the architect team moves forward with the exterior architectural features of the new station, as budget allows.

Here is a link to the survey.


3/13/2019 – A community meeting was held on March 11 with great attendance. Roughly 25 residents attended to hear information shared by the Fire Chief, the Architect and the City Planning Department. Concerns were expressed about noise, lights, traffic and pedestrian safety.  These concerns are being heard and addressed and will be discussed at the next community meeting to be held later in May.


2/27/2019 – A community meeting is planned for 6:30 p.m. on Monday, March 11 at Greater Works Church, 25 Forsythe Street. The community is invited to learn more about the project and meet the architect as the project begins the design phase.

11/20/18 – The goats have completed their duties on Broadway Street and have made a huge difference with the Kudzu mountain! With the weather dropping, Mountain Goatscapes will be moving the goats out and will begin taking down the fence.

The city may decide to do another “goat treatment” of the area but not until spring or early summer when everything is actively growing.

11/19/18 – A contract securing an architect is in its final stages.

11/8/18 – The property for Station 13 is receiving some land management assistance from Mountain Goatscapes. Several goats will spend the next few weeks clearing and managing invasive vegetation in an environmentally conscious way to help clear the land for assessment.



AFD identified the need for an additional fire station north of downtown to meet our goals for the standard of coverage. AFD’s performance objective is to reach all emergencies in 5 minutes 12 seconds or less, 90% of the time. The City of Asheville purchased the property on Broadway Street in 2010 and funds have been approved by council to begin design and construction of Fire Station 13.
