City purchases land for Fire Station 3

  • Monday, January 14, 2013


After months of searching, Goose Creek has purchased land for Fire Station 3. The land is located off Old Mt. Holly Road in a wooded area across from Lowe’s.
Goose Creek City Council passed a resolution to annex the property into the city at its regularly scheduled Dec. 11 meeting. This will be the Goose Creek Fire Department’s second substation.
The four acres of land were purchased for $590,000, City Administrator Dennis Harmon told The Gazette. The land was paid for in cash, he said.
“We looked at every piece of property in that area to best serve that area,” Harmon said. “It’s a super location for Station 3. It’s a good piece of property for a good price.”
Earlier in 2012 city staff met with Alcoa leaders about purchasing property near the water tower off St. James Avenue but no purchase was made.
The city will build a new fire station headquarters on property near the Public Works building on the east side of North Goose Creek Boulevard and north of Brandywine Boulevard.
The current headquarters station on the other side of Brandywine Boulevard has become outdated.
