Council Gets First Look at Plans for Public Safety Facility

On Monday, City council got its first look at what the new proposed public safety facility would look like.

During a council workshop, architect Humphries and Poli unveiled the preliminary plans for the new facility.

The $98 million project would house the police and fire departments, municipal courts and dispatch center.

The complex would be located between Ute and Pitken Avenues from 5th to 7th Streets.

Officials say not only will help them keep up with anticipated growth but it would also bring added value to the area.

Supporters of the new public safety facility want to put a half–cent sales tax increase on the November ballot.

If voters approve the funding officials say it would take about 16 to 18 months to build the facility.
