North Texas Street construction project underway

By From page B8 | August 19, 2013

FAIRFIELD — Construction is underway for a dialysis center on a lot at 1800 N. Texas St., near Oak Street.

This is 1.27 acres that Fairfield owned for years and had targeted for a bus transfer center for Fairfield and Suisun Transit. But things never worked out, with merchants opposing the idea and the Planning Commission turning it down in 2003.

Instead, the city sold the land in December 2012 for $650,000 and put the money into a park-and-ride lot to be built on Oliver Road. Meridian/Envision of San Ramon bought and is developing the North Texas Street land.

The project is an 8,700-square-foot, single-story building for the dialysis center with 24 treatment stations and 12 to 13 full-time employees. There will be 44 parking spaces. Landscaping will include such plants as crape myrtle trees, oaks and Mexican sage, according to papers filed by Meridian with Fairfield.

Patients will be treated from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., the papers said. A majority of patients receive treatments three times a week, either Monday, Wednesday and Friday or Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, the papers said.
