Planning Commission to Review Tallahassee Fire District Plan

The Fremont County Planning Commission will consider two issues on the agenda for their December 1st monthly meeting.   The Planning Commission will review a proposed service plan to create a new legally constituted district for fire and rescue services in northwest Fremont County.    The proposed service plan for the Tallahassee Fire and Rescue District was submitted to the county by the Tallahassee Volunteer Fire Department which has served the area both east and west of Highway 9 since 1999.   Since Northwest EMS Ambulance went out of service several years ago the service plan calls for medical services under the new Tallahassee district to include initial patient assessment and stabilization.

After review by the Planning Commission the proposed service plan will go before the Board of County Commissioners.   The Commissioners must approve service plans for any new special districts in the county before the issue is taken to the voters within the proposed boundaries.   Voter approval is then required before a new district is created.   The plan projects that the district could get into operation sometime in 2016.   The plan estimates a population of 2,400 people within the proposed district boundaries.

The other item to be taken up by the Planning Commission is a request by Mike Abbott for approval of a Commercial Development Plan (CDP) to allow a professional office and a liquor store at 1532 Elm Avenue in Lincoln Park.   Abbott’s Waterhole #1 Liquor Store at 1503 Elm Avenue would relocate just down the street to this new location.

The Planning Commission meets at 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, December 1st, in Room LL-3 of the Fremont County Administration Building.
