(LaPorte, IN) - A fast-food restaurant is planned where a fire station now stands in LaPorte. A $375,000 offer has been made for the fire station on the city’s east side. Bert Cook is the executive director of the LaPorte Economic Advancement partnership.
He says the one-acre parcel is suitable for just a limited number of uses like a fast-food restaurant or gas station. He could not say what type of fast food restaurant would be going up because of the offer still pending final approval by the city council. The fire station will be torn down once construction of the new one on Daytona St. off E. Lincolnway is finished later this year.
