 Fenton — The old fire hall in downtown Fenton is on schedule to become the Fenton Fire Hall restaurant.

 The agreement between the DDA and the Clarkston Union requires the old fire hall to be open for business by April 30 of next year.

 Mike Burns, assistant city manager and DDA director said that plans are moving along quite well, with the city having received the Clarkston Union’s site plans earlier this month.

 “They are currently going

through the review process, and should be finalized in the next couple of weeks,” Burns said. “They want to begin construction as soon as possible.”

 Construction on the fire hall will begin sometime this winter, and could possibly be as early as this November.

 When finished, the Fenton Fire Hall is expected to have an open fire pit kitchen, a 60-tap beer garden, rooftop and outdoor patio dining, and a lounge area in the building’s bottom floor. Planned to accompany all of this is also the serving of a Fenton Fire Hall ale.

 What many may anticipate the most however, could be the renowned macaroni and cheese the Clarkston Union serves that will soon be making its way to Fenton.

    I can't wait for the Fire Hall to be renovated into a restaurant. This will bring so many more people into the downtown area and if it's anything like the Union Woodshop in Clarkston the food will be amazing!
