Public Notice of Grant

The Orange County Fire Rescue Department (OCFRD) is currently pursuing a funding opportunity through the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO). The DEO has designated a total of $475 million to be allocated through the Rebuild Florida Mitigation General Infrastructure Program. These funds have been provided through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Community Development Block Grant – Mitigation (CDBG-MIT) to areas impacted by presidentially declared disasters in 2016 and 2017 with the purpose of better protecting Florida from future disasters.

OCFRD will apply for funding to construct a replacement Station 80, located at 1841 Bonneville Dr. The current Station 80 is a pre-engineered metal building that was constructed in 1973. The construction of a replacement station will provide a hurricane ready building and ensure the station remains operational through inclement conditions. OCFRD owns the parcel adjacent to Station 80, and the construction of a new station would not impact current operations.

With the construction of a new Station 80, OCFRD intends to repurpose the existing building to serve as a fleet maintenance facility. This site would supplement the work currently conducted at Orange County Fleet Management, 4400 Vineland Rd., providing a more accessible location for OCFRD units located in east Orange County and decreasing the time these units are out of service for maintenance issues.

OCFRD will receive public comments on this project from August 14 through August 28. To submit comments, please email FireRescue1@ocfl.net and include CDBG Grant in the subject line. Jacob Lujan, Compliance and Planning Administrator, will be the contact person for this process. Please note in your email if you wish to receive a copy of the proposed application.
