City of Highland Park Seeks Feedback on Redevelopment of Ravinia Fire Station #32

Community meetings held on the third Thursday of every month, January 19 through July 20, 2017

The City will be hosting community meetings at Fire Station #33, 1130 Central Ave, to obtain public input regarding the redevelopment of the Ravinia Fire Station. Meetings will take place at 6:00 PM every third Thursday of the month, starting January 19 and ending July 20, 2017. Public feedback is welcomed and encouraged. City Manager Neukirch and Fire Chief Pease will present operational challenges with the Ravinia Fire Station, location options considered and redesign options for the station. Redeveloping a fire station that allows the department to provide emergency response services in an efficient and effective manner is of utmost importance.  A station that is compatible with the neighborhood in terms of design and scale and provides appropriate landscaping and lighting in the neighborhood is very important.  Residents and businesses are welcome to attend.

Ravinia Fire Station #32 located at 692 Burton Ave. was originally constructed in 1929 as a sub-station and is in need of renovations to keep up with the growing needs of our community. The station has undergone several major remodels over the years to accommodate changes in service delivery, but continues to create challenges with internal operability, lack of efficiencies and service delivery. 

In 2015, an internal location study based on response times was conducted and it was determined the best location for response is the current location. In 2016, the City worked with Williams Architects to identify the needs of the Fire Department and allow the Department to improve its service delivery for public safety purposes. The City is seeking community input on the redevelopment of the fire station. 
A question/ answer document pertaining to the project is available for review below.
