Fire Station 31

In October 2019, the Seattle Fire Department, together with the Department of Finance and Administrative Services (FAS) and the Mayor's Office, determined that the existing Fire Station 31 building at 1319 N. Northgate Way no longer met SFD's operational needs.

Following an extensive search process that included community input and considerations for criteria such as ability to meet service response times, size of property, safety, access to arterial roadways, etc., the City identified and approved a new location for the permanent station at 11302 Meridian Ave. N. The site is primarily vacant and highly suitable for SFD's operational and service area needs.

Share input on the design process

The City is in the early stages of the design process and seeking community input on the design of the future station. Due to a surge of Omicron cases in the region, an in-person open house that had been tentatively scheduled has been adapted to an online, virtual video update. Residents and community members are encouraged to view this brief video and share any input on the process by e-mailing You can also mail input to: 

Capital Development - City of Seattle
P.O. Box 94689
Seattle, WA 98124-4689  

Please share input by Friday, Feb. 4, if possible.
