This is just an update on what is happening with Fire Station #7. As you may recall, last February, Mayor reed and I announced that $2.5 million would be dedicated to the renovations of Fire Station #7 which is located at 535 West Whitehall Street, SW( in Historic West End). As you know, Fire Station #7 served over 9 communities including West End, Atlanta University Center, Booker T. Washington/ Ashview Heights, Oakland City, Mechanicsville, Pittsburgh, Bush Mountain, Venetian Hills, Cascade Avenue Corridor, Beecher Donnelly, Mozley Park and the Just Us Community.
The architectural drawings have been completed and the project has gone out for bids for the rehabilitation work. I will continue to keep you updated as I receive further information. Again, thank you for having supported the need to re-open this Fire Station in all of these Historic Neighborhoods that were previously mentioned.
