Plans Progress for New Orinda Fire Station

With a design approved, a new fire station on Via Las Cruces, Orinda, awaits the fire district's long-range financial plan before the board will approve the construction phase.

On Sept. 25, the Orinda Planning Commission approved the Moraga-Orinda Fire District site plan and architectural design for the replacement of Fire Station 43, according to a news release from MOFD.

The district reported that it worked with area residents to ensure the design complemented the neighborhood. The proposed two-story fire station of about 5,000 square feet is due to be completed at the end of 2013. District staff is drafting a 13- to 15-year financial plan to address unfunded liabilities, capital equipment and infrastructure needs.
