Temporary Use Permit for Fire Station #2

Orlando Fire Department requests an 18-month Temporary Use Permit with the possibility of two 1-yr administrative extensions by the Planning Official for Temporary Fire Station #2 at 1203 W. Robinson St., on the southwest corner of Hames Ave. and Robinson St. The station is being built as an interim, temporary measure to provide fire and emergency medical coverage (Engine and Rescue manned with 5-6 personnel) for the Parramore and surrounding area of the City. (LDC2014-00245)(Economic Development)

The 2.5 acre subject property, located at 1203 W. Robinson Street, is in the I-G/T/PH (General Industrial in the Traditional City and Parramore Heritage Overlay districts) zoning and the INDUST (Industrial) future land use districts. The proposed use is a public benefit use (Fire Station) which is permitted in the zoning and future land designations. The City owned property fronts on Robinson Street and will be used as an interim Fire Station 2 as of in December 2014. The temporary station will consist of 3 leased modular trailers and a canopy for two apparatus (see attached). The temporary station will be occupied until a permanent Fire Station 2 is built (estimated within 18 months). The temporary structure is being proposed to accommodate the construction schedule for the Soccer Stadium and allow time to plan, permit, and build a permanent Fire Station 2. City staff is currently reviewing site plans for the permanent station which shall be constructed west of the temporary Fire Station 2 on the subject site. The final review of the permanent station will be conducted through a Master Plan.
