Construction Underway For New Facilities For York County Fire and Sheriff Departments

Sign up here for our free newsletter that tells you about the newest stories, three mornings each week.

YORK-Construction will soon begin on a new fire station as well as a new law enforcement building in York County.

York is renovating an existing building in the upper part of the county that will become Fire Station 7. The building, which is located on Mooretown Road, is the site of the former Crossroads Community Youth Home. The new fire station will provide fire and EMS services to residents and visitors of York County as well as mutual aid to James City County and Williamsburg.

Meanwhile, in the lower end of the county, construction will begin this fall on a new Law Enforcement Building on Goodwin Neck Road. The new facility will boast more than 50,000 square feet of space for the York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office, and will include squad, training, and interview rooms, evidence storage space, expanded office space, a large meeting room, and more. The new Law Enforcement Building is expected to be completed in the winter of 2023.

For progress on these construction projects, visit York County’s Facebook page.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
