Aurora looks to add another fire station

Excerpts from the

Aurora is looking to buy land on the northeast side for its 10th fire station. The plan is for Fire Station 10 to be on land at Nan Street and Bilter Road, just to the west of the entrance to the new parking lot of the Chicago Premium Outlets mall.

The City Council’s Finance Committee this week recommended a contract to purchase the land. It still needs to pass the Committee of the Whole and full City Council.

Lehman told the committee the Fire Department gets about 500 calls in the area near the mall, and it will only increase, “especially with future development coming in.”
