Rosemont Station 55 - New Station
Click HERE to subscribe to construction updates.

Location/Service Area
Station 55 is located on a 2.6-acre site along Hidden Springs Road near Rosemont. It shares a southern boundary with Trillium Creek Elementary School. The future station’s service area includes single- and multi-family housing, commercial structures, and areas of forest and agricultural land.

Why a New Station?
Fire District leadership conducted a thorough analysis of population density, incident types, and traffic when determining the ideal location for the new station. TVF&R identified the need for a station in this location to ensure fast and effective emergency response to local residents and to strengthen emergency response in the greater West Linn area. Due to the topography of the area and transportation network in West Linn, locating the station at the top of the hill at its proposed location offers the best coverage and fastest response times to emergency incidents.

Project Description
Rosemont Station 55 will be a single-story fire station staffed around the clock by a four-person crew with room to expand if call volume increases. The station will feature a community meeting room.

Estimated Construction Timeline
The contractor began construction in mid-May with a target completion in summer 2018.
