Fire Headquarters/Station 13 Open House - September 25

Post Date:09/12/2018 2:41 PM
MPFD_Poster_crop-smOn Tuesday, September 25, 2018 the Village of Mount Prospect will hold a public Open House at 111 E. Rand Road, the site of the future Mount Prospect Fire Headquarters/Station 13.  The Open House will take place from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. and will be a chance for the public to tour the building and view conceptual floor plans, elevations, and renderings of what the renovated Rand Road property will look like.  Information on the financing plan will also be available. In addition, a portion of the Open House will be dedicated to the progress that has been made on the new Police Headquarters project that will be located at 799 Biermann Ct.  This will also include floor plan information, elevations, and exterior renderings of the future appearance of the Biermann building. 

The Mount Prospect Village Board voted to approve the purchase of the property at 111 E. Rand Road on May 15, 2018 for purpose of repurposing the existing building shell for the relocation of the current Fire Headquarters/Station 13 to this space.  The purchase price of the building was $1,477,500 with the real estate closing being completed on August 17, 2018.  The relocation of Station 13 to 111 E. Rand Road will allow the Fire Department to improve its coverage of the industry standard 4-minute drive time from 83% of the Village to 97% coverage.  

The Village takes pride in keeping this process open and transparent.  In addition to the Open House on September 25, 2018, there will be several more opportunities for the public to learn about the project and provide feedback to staff and the Village Board.
