Town of Avon seeking business to lease old fire station for workforce housing
AVON — The town of Avon is seeking a business to lease the former Fire Station No. 7 for use as worker housing. The Eagle River Fire Protection District has utilized the station, located at 351 Benchmark Road, for the past 15-plus years as an active fire-response station, with residential dormitory housing.
The building is being studied for repurposing into another long-term use. During the study, design and funding period, the objective of the Avon Town Council is to have the building utilized for worker housing, rather than remain vacant.
The space can accommodate up to 12 individuals in eight individual bedrooms and four bathrooms. The initial lease will be from Dec. 15, 2017, to Sept. 15, 2018.

It’s fitting that Eagle County is proceeding through its reopening phases of COVID-19 in an analogy to ski run difficulties — green to blue to black. Monday marks the transition from the green beginner phase to the blue intermediate phase.
