A 3.75 acre parcel of land in Rancho Viejo will be the location for a new Santa Fe County fire station as soon as late 2011. The land, located on Rancho Viejo Blvd. near N.M. 14 and the Turquoise Trail Business Park, was donated to the County by master planned community developer Rancho Viejo.
When completed, the new fire station will be a 9,000 square foot facility with 24-hour living quarters for both paid and volunteer firefighting staff. It will be the headquarters facility for firefighting in western Santa Fe County, serving nearly 15,000 residents in the Rancho Viejo and La Cienega areas.
