Kennydale Firestation 15 and Reservoir Project
On February 27, the Kennydale neigborhood celebrated the groundbreaking of Fire Station 15. The new fire station will provide improved response times for fire and life safety services in Kennydale and the Renton Regional Fire Authority (RFA) service area.
The City of Renton is moving forward with plans to design and construct a new fire station in the Kennydale neighborhood on a city-owned parcel at 1404 North 30th Street, just west of I-405. The city will also utilize the site to design and construct a water reservoir to address long-identified needs for supply reliability, pressure surge control and to increase storage capacity in the Kennydale area for fire protection and domestic water use. Both activities are a collaboration of the Renton Regional Fire Authority and the city’s facilities division and utility systems division.
