Following a space study and building assessment, it was determined Fire Station 1 was no longer adequate for the growing Hendersonville Fire Department. The findings were presented to City Council in early 2020 that found numerous space and safety concerns. Following demolition of the existing 9,854 square-foot building constructed in 2000, a new, 19,750 square-foot station will be constructed. The station will include a one-story portion to house three companies and their Battalion Chiefs and corresponding living quarters, kitchen, restroom and shower facilities. Apparatus bays with attached turnout gear storage and decon areas will allow access to both Main Street and Church Street. A two-story portion of the building will house the administrative offices, life safety division, and training room for the Fire Department.

The Laura Corn Mini Golf will be relocated to Edwards Park with efforts made to preserve features of the course. Pickleball courts will be installed in Patton Park.
