The Avon Town Council wants the fire station building on Benchmark Road in Avon to be utilized for worker housing, rather than remain vacant, until a long-term use is found for it.

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. For more information, visit http://www.avon.org/1027/town-initiatives or contact Matt Pielsticker at 970-748-4413 or mpielsticker@avon.org.
