Steel up at the New Police Station
The drawings for the building look pretty attractive. Check them out on the city’s website.
The building itself cost $7.02 million, but the city issued bonds for $8 million to furnish the building and cover unexpected expenses.
The Police Department is currently housed in some converted dorms on East College. The new facility is centrally located and will be earthquake resistant.
The city also recently bought the eastern portion of the old Lincoln School site. The plan is to keep that area as a park. I haven’t heard what the new park will be called or what the design will be.
Lincoln Street forms the eastern boundary of the site, so I suggest Lincoln Square for the name. The people in charge of naming the park are welcome to use that name without giving me credit.
The area is already set up for softball and basketball. Adding some benches, landscaping, and restrooms would really spruce it up.
Comments are welcome.
