Carlsbad California is Getting a New Fire Station, Complete with Public Art Work

 

The proposed new Carlsbad Fire Station No. 3Carlsbad California is getting a new fire station, #3, to be built in the Robertson Ranch area at Cannon Road and El Camino Real adjacent to The Foothills planned community.

 

Carlsbad Fire Station No. 3 will replace an older, smaller facility at Chestnut and Catalina and will allow the Carlsbad Fire Department to provide faster emergency response times and service a more centralized corridor. The new Carlsbad Fire Station location also eliminates overlapping service areas.

 

The other cool thing is the City of Carlsbad requires that a small portion of construction costs for large public buildings are used for some form of public art. Six artists (Christopher Lee, Anne Mudge, Betsy Schulz, Lisa Schirmer, Richard Becker, and Ball-Nogues Studio) with proposed projects met with the public art committee in early December to share their plans for the public art work project at the new Carlsbad Fire Station No. 3.

 

The committee’s recommendation was sent to the Carlsbad Arts Commission for a final approval, who recently announced the winner (North County Times article), Betsy Schulz.

 

The budget for this particular art project is approximately $48,000.

Construction will being on Carlsbad Fire Station No. 3 with completion and occupancy expected by September 2014.

I do as well. Carlsbad has a great reputation as a town that actively supports the arts, and this is just one more special reason.

I know the artist selected for the public art element at the new first station. It will be fun to see her creation!
