The proposal is to relocate and/or construct facilities in the Rye Patch area to support Fire Suppression Preparedness. Location would be adjacent to the intersection of Stampede Rd. and Pyramid Lake Rd. in Rye Patch. Current facilities, located in Lovelock, are inadequate for the needs of the District as they are leased (costly), dispersed (barracks, office and engine barn located in different parts of the town), temporary in nature (trailers) and portions are collocated with the Lovelock Volunteer Fire Department. Approximately 2.5 acres would be needed to enclose a crew barracks, an office, covered or enclosed engine bays, a shop, and associated infrastructure / utilities to include; a well, septic tank and leach field, concrete pads in front of shop and engine bays, concrete walkways, paved or graveled drive and parking, lighting, landscaping and perimeter fencing. An additional 2.5 acres would be reserved for future expansion of facilities if needed (ie. helipad, additional bays, etc). Project would likely be phased over 3 years. Heavy equipment would likely need to be used for site preparation.
