All Public Art Projects managed by the City of San Antonio’s Department of Arts & Culture follow a comprehensive process. The Public Art Process includes six major checkpoints, in which we check in with the community and stakeholders for updates and feedback from beginning to end. Milestones with an asterisk indicate required approvals by our Public Art Committee and San Antonio Arts Commission. On average, a project can be completed in up to 24 months.

Project Overview:

Founded in 1891, the San Antonio Fire Department (SAFD) has been protecting the Alamo City for over 130 years. Today, SAFD has over 1,000 uniformed officers across 51 fire stations who respond to fire, rescue, and medical first response service requests. Located in City Council District 10, the original Fire Station 24 was built in 1956. Fire Station #24 Replacement will be in City Council District 2, serving both districts.

Public Art Project locations must gain approval from the San Antonio Art’s Commission’s Public Art Committee before the project can continue. This project gained approval on from the Public Art Committee on May 3, 2023.

If a project is in a park or historic district/location it must gain approval from the City of San Antonio’s Office of Historic Preservation’s Historic Design Review Commission. This project did not need approval from the Historic Design Review Commission.
