Fairfield planners eye subdivisions with 207 units, new fire station

From page A4 | August 13, 2014 |

FAIRFIELD — The Enclave at Red Top, a 143-lot single-family residential subdivision on 22 acres, and Gold Hill 2, a 64-unit single-family subdivision on 8 acres southeast of Red Top Road, go before Fairfield city planning commissioners when they meet Wednesday.

Commissioners will also consider a new $3.8 million fire station the subdivisions developer will build.

Fire Station No. 35 will be built on about 1.5 acres at the intersection of Lopes Road and Red Top Road across from Rodriguez High School. The new station would replace the existing station at 473 Edison Court.

Discovery Builders will receive public facilities credits for the fire station construction that will be applied to the cost of building permits.

The Enclave at Red Top would be located just north of the future Villas at Havenhill apartment complex. Gold Hill 2 is similar to Gold Hill Village under construction at the Interstate 680 and Gold Hill Road interchange.

The subdivision proposals require approval of a General Plan amendment from commercial to residential.

Commissioners meet at 6 p.m. in the Fairfield City Council chamber, 1000 Webster St.

    By the time this gets approval and goes through all the red tape so the first mound of dirt can be moved the drought will be long gone.

    Hopefully this new Firestation will get a 50 foot Ladder truck that can be used to respond on traffic accidents.

    If we weren't paying firefighters $100,000 to $200,000 per year we could build new fire stations at will. retirement rip-offs and overtime crooks are stealing from us every day.
