The Ketchum City Council passed on the forthcoming Ketchum fire station’s design-review application to the Planning and Zoning Commission in a 4-0 vote on Monday, effectively moving it along the construction pipeline. The fire station site at a city-owned dirt lot north of the Wood River YMCA along Saddle Road was officially locked in last month following a 3-1 City Council vote on Dec. 16. Ketchum voters previously approved a bond measure to fund the $11.5 million, 14,500-square-foot building with a two-thirds majority in the Nov. 5 city election. On Monday, Boise-based Cole Architects presented exterior renderings of the building to the public that depicted metal and wood siding and a black-brick theme. According to blueprints from Cole Architects, the new facility will include four drive-through bays to accommodate the wider turns of ladder trucks, six dormitories, several offices and a large conference room.
