The Canyon Lake POA today accepted an offer from the City of Canyon Lake to purchase the fire station property, located on Vacation Drive.
The POA currently owns the property where the city’s lone fire station is located and has been leasing the property to the city.
Around December 2022, the POA informed the city that it had planned to increase the lease from $1 per year to $9,662 per month, according to the city.
Following negotiations regarding a possible extension of the lease, the city issued the POA an offer to purchase the property for $1,390,000. Today, the POA Board accepted the city’s offer.
The launch ramp to the north ski area will remain the POA’s property. “The parking lot and launch ramp to the north ski area will be severed from the property the city purchases, so such parking lot and launch ramp will remain the Canyon Lake POA’s property, and otherwise be used for the same purposes as before,” the POA said in a news release.
“On behalf of the city council, we are extremely excited about this opportunity for both the fire department and the entire community,” Mayor Jeremy Smith said. “After many hours of negotiation between city council members and POA board members, we are thankful that we are coming together in the best interest of the community.”
The council and board members plan to discuss this issue at their next open session meetings. The next board meeting is scheduled for February 7 at 6 p.m. The next city council meeting is scheduled for February 8 at 6:30 p.m.
