City of Asheville Fire and Police Departments will host an Uncoupling Ceremony (Ribbon Cutting) at the Broadway Public Safety Station (Station 13) on Thursday, December 14 at 1 p.m. The station is located at 316 Broadway Street, Asheville 28801.
Station tours will be available to community members and the media immediately following the ceremony.
Some onsite parking is available, but limited. Additional parking is available along Magnolia Avenue. Please consider carpooling.
The station, located in north Asheville, will increase emergency incident outcomes by reducing response times to the station 13 coverage area.
This station includes 3 bays, living quarters for firefighters, an office and other spaces to support fire station functions, the city’s emergency operations center, police office space, and a small multipurpose room.
The station will be LEED certified and will be the seventh facility to include onsite renewable energy production. The solar array will produce approximately 77,386 kilowatt hours per year, enough electricity to power 7 homes. You can monitor the solar energy production of this site here.
The station will also host a new piece of public artwork, a playable harp, to be installed in 2024.
