City purchases land for future fire and city hall

ENTERPRISE — The City of Enterprise closed on property earlier this week that is the future site of its fire hall and city administrative buildings.

The land faces River Street in downtown Enterprise and backs up to the current city office and fire hall on the corner of North and Southeast First streets.

For several years, Enterprise has looked for an alternative site to replace the building that is deteriorating, according to City Administrator Michele Young. Four years ago, the roof was compromised in an October storm and it was sufficiently repaired, but that and weaknesses in the fire hall prompted the city council to start looking for a new space.

The city bought property on Highway 3 after the need to replace the building became obvious. Unfortunately, Young said, that site is problematic because of its access for fire trucks. That lot will soon be put on the market now that the lot on River Street has been purchased.

“We are planning for the future,” said Young. “We won’t be able to build for five or 10 years, but now we can start a plan for a new facility.”

In the meantime, the lot, which was purchased for $70,000, will be turned into a green space — like a mini city park, until the city has the funding to build.
