The County of San Mateo (County) owns the property and buildings comprising the Skylonda Fire Station No. 58 located at the “Four-Corners” area, providing fire protection services for Kings Mountain, La Honda, Upper Woodside, and Skyline Boulevard. CalFire provides the fire protection services under a service contract with the County, staffing the Fire Station with personnel and firefighting apparatus.
The County intends to build a replacement Fire Station Barracks/Office Building that will consolidate the functions and operations of the two existing structures into a single structure. The Barracks/Office Building will contain:
- Administrative offices and related support spaces
- Combined conference and training room
- Kitchen and dining room
- Fitness room
- Dorm rooms
- Men’s restroom and showers
- Women’s restroom and shower
- Uni-sex accessible restroom
- Laundry room
A new primary vehicular access connection shall be provided to Skyline Boulevard to facilitate improved traffic sightlines and vehicle turning radiuses. The new access connection may incorporate traffic signalization capable of being operated from the fire fighting apparatus vehicles to improve safety for accessing and egressing the site.
A septic system and leach field shall be constructed to serve the Barracks/Office and Apparatus Buildings. The existing leach field shall be upgraded conform to all requirements of the County Department of Environmental Health and all applicable ordinances and regulations.
The Fire Station must remain operational at all times during the construction of the improvements. The Barracks/Office Building will be built at the existing County of San Mateo Skylonda Fire Station No. 58 Facility located at 17290 Skyline Boulevard in Woodside, CA (Project Site). The project scope will include the demolition of the existing Barracks and Office Buildings following completion and occupancy of the new consolidated facility.
