Gadsden Moving Forward with New Projects

Plans are to have the construction of Gadsden’s new Fire Station 5 taking place at the same time as the renovation of the adjacent campground – at Noccalula Falls Park.  The City Council has officially accepted a bid in the amount of $2,829,209.97 from Boatner Construction for the project.  Fire Station 5 is one of the oldest fire stations in the city – that, according to Mayor Craig Ford – along with North Gadsden and Country Club, which are also scheduled for replacement.

The project is part of the city’s master plan for the falls area, and the new station will have a log cabin-style facade in keeping with the park’s motif – and it’ll also include a brand new police sub-precinct to enhance safety and security for visitors and campers at the park.

City officials have said that the goal for that campground renovation is to be completed by the end of the year.
