The Downtown Fire Service Tap Program consists of a set fee for tap installation. The program includes all buildings within the Downtown Urban Conservation Overlay District.

All buildings not currently served by a fire protection sprinkler system and for which no existing tap serves the building, are eligible to receive a fire protection service tap for a flat fee of $3,000, provided that the building owner agrees to install a full fire protection sprinkler system throughout the building. A single tap (and the requisite service tap fee) may be shared by multiple buildings provided that the building owners sign a Fire Protection System Cross-Connection Agreement and subject to the review and approval of the City.

Tap installation will be coordinated with the building owner and/or the building tenant.

    • The building owner will pay the City $3,000 for the service tap.
    • The tap installation work will be performed by the City
