In order to serve the unincorporated township of Riceville, the Riceville Fire Department (RFD) must double its capacity. The RFD serves a population of 10,000 Buncombe County residents and has been in need of expanding for the past decade. This may require a new facility as the RFD currently leases space from the Riceville Community Center (RCC). ADC will work with the RFD and RCC to develop designs for a new, shared facility that will accommodate the RFD’s need for expansion, while providing for the RCC’s desire to expand services.
Project Goals

Resolve property ownership issues between RFD and RCC
Prepare RFD to be shovel-ready with viable design options when funding opportunities arise
Expand programming and community services offered by RCC
