Sunset Fire Hall has fresh coat of paint
Sunset Fire Hall is looking pretty good these days.
The renovations to the heavily-utilized building, funded by voter-approved 2018 general obligation bonds and directed by West Linn City Council in December 2018, called for updating restrooms, removal of lead paint and new exterior paint. With minimal disruption to the facility's schedule all loose and flaking paint was removed and all surfaces stabilized, weatherization and exterior painting were completed on time and under budget. The fresh paint along with the necessary replacement of rotting wood and addition of wood trim accents provide a crisp appearance to this previously worn-looking building.
Interior improvements will begin soon.
