Staff report

Washington Township Hendricks County along with Veridus Group, Meyer-Najem, DELV Design, RL Turner and HWC celebrated the groundbreakings of Station 144 and Murphy Aquatic Park.

“The Washington Township/Avon Fire Department is excited to begin work on our new fire station,” Chief Dan Smith said. “As our community continues to grow and service requests increase, the ability to deploy apparatus and personnel more quickly allows us to reduce response times and create better outcomes when residents are experiencing a potentially life-changing emergency.”

Station 144 will be located at 1481 N. CR 900 E and should be complete in January.

Murphy Aquatic Park located at 753 S. CR 625 E is set to open Memorial Day Weekend 2022.

“This project has been three years in the making, and we are excited to bring this opportunity to the community,” said Lora Helmick, Washington Township Park director. “When Murphy Aquatic Park opens in the summer of 2022 it will truly be a place for adults and children of ALL abilities to play.”
