PROJECT OVERVIEW

The Silo structure—both inside and out—offers opportunities for a unique space that will be an exciting destination for all age groups. Other Silo/Towers ask visitors to climb for little reward. Here, each floor can offer a different view of the Village with interactive museum stations: First stop, a look at the Past, where North Aurora started. Then climb upward a floor and you are in the Present, where we’ve come to. Then another flight of stairs and you are looking at the Future, the “Crossroads of the Fox,” a vibrant community. And finally, the last floor offers a spectacular view of the Fox River. Other exciting opportunities may be to offer a fly-over of the area on a zip line, a climbing wall, and night lighting.
