A new $8.5 million, combined 27,000-SF Public Safety Building replaced separate outdated fire and police facilities. The new building includes several joint functions, including a reception lobby, a fitness center, and a training room.
The police amenities include offices, evidence processing and storage, an armory, a patrol room, and a separate entrance for those in custody. The fire department spaces include administrative offices, five apparatus bays, a decontamination room, much-needed bunk rooms, and a day room.
The Central Fire Station was razed to make room for the new building.
Port City Architecture designed the new building.
