Construction on Streetsboro’s new fire station is anticipated to last for one year, reports Record-Courier.
A traditional groundbreaking could not be held because of restrictions on gatherings that were implemented by the state in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. When the project is completed in April 2021, Streetsboro Fire Chief Robert Reinholz said there will be a grand opening.
According to Reinholz, in 1949 the community donated supplies and labor to build Streetsboro’s first fire station. The department moved into the former Wise Elementary School, where it remains today, in the early 1990s. The new building is designed to sustain the needs of the community for about 50 years.
