The city of Greer has closed on a parcel of land intended for a new fire station.

The city purchased the approximately 4.5 acres of land for $910,000 and closed on the agreement on Nov. 3. The land parcel is located adjacent to current city property at the corner of Suber Road and Chick Springs Road.

“As the city of Greer continues to see unprecedented growth, it is crucial that we ensure our public services keep pace,” City Administrator Andrew Merriman said in a news release. “This acquisition is just one step in the right direction to provide continued quality of life and public safety services for our community.”

The site is intended for a new fire station and for the expansion of the current park and soccer complex, the news release said. The fire station will replace the current Hood Road location and allow for quicker deployment and response times from the Greer Fire Department, the city says. Additionally, it will allow the Greer to redevelop the current Hood Road site to serve as a more complete and functional training facility.

“This acquisition allows the city to continue to improve the emergency services it provides to the community,” Greer Fire Chief Dorian Flowers said in the release.

Other recent expansions include the acquisition of the former Pelham-Batesville Fire Station on Highway 14 and a partnership with the Taylors Fire Department Rescue Station 3 on St. Mark Road.
