Ave Maria Development and the Immokalee Fire Control District will break ground for the new Immokalee Fire Control District Ave Maria Public Safety Complex during a ceremony at 10 a.m. Thursday, March 5, at the site in the Ave Maria Park of Commerce.
The 22,000-square-foot station will serve Ave Maria proper and the southern areas of the Immokalee Fire Control District. It will have the capability to house a minimum of five personnel 24 hours a day, seven days a week and could potentially accommodate more than a dozen personnel including Collier County Sheriff ’s Office deputies, EMS supervisors, Fire Chief Michael Choate and administrative staff.
Designed by GMA Architects and constructed by Envirostruct, the station is the first new facility in the Immokalee Fire Control District since 1953. Anticipated opening is early 2021.
