On Monday, August 28, Hilliard City Council members approved the allocation of a portion of all new residential building fees in the Big Darby Accord area to go towards the construction of a new Norwich Township Fire and EMS Station.

Developers are required by the City to pay impact fees to help pay a portion of the costs of providing public services to a new development. For every impact fee that a developer of real property pays, the city will deposit $250 into an account to assist in the funding of a future Fire and EMS Station that will serve the new residential units.

Norwich Township has projected a need for a new Fire and EMS Station in order to meet the future demands generated by the growth and new development in the western portion of the City. By adding a fourth Fire and EMS Station, residents will continue to receive the high quality of service and quick response time that they are accustomed to.

The Mayor and City Council recognizes the exceptional services that the Norwich Township Fire Department provides to the community and assisting Norwich Township in maintaining these services is important to the City of Hilliard.
