Excerpts from the ChicagoTribune.com:

After quickly deciding that replacing the Ravinia Fire Station is the city’s highest building priority, the Highland Park City Council must now decide what it can undertake and when. Without any equivocation, city council members agreed in early January that replacing the cramped fire station was a higher priority than expanding the Highland Park Public Library or renovating the Highland Park Country Club facility to serve as a senior center. Architects put the cost of a new fire station at $7.5 million.

The city is considering reconstructing the Ravinia Fire Station at its current location or on the Brown Park property across the street.
