We are excited to present a comprehensive overview of our upcoming project—the construction of a new police station. This project is designed to enhance our community's safety and provide a modern and efficient space for our dedicated police force.

Project Details: The New Police Station encompasses an operational area on two levels of approximately 31,600 square feet and a Training Range of approximately 4,000 square feet. A K9 Outbuilding of approximately 4,000 square feet is located behind the building on the backside of the property. The overall layout is strategically situated within the existing footprint of the current Police Station. In total, the square footage of the new facilities will be approximately 40,000 square feet. This approach minimally impacts the wetlands, expedites the construction timeline, and allows our Police Department to function seamlessly during the building process.

Benefits of This Option:

  • Minimized impact on wetlands
  • Faster construction timeline (approximately sixteen months)
  • Uninterrupted Police Department operations
  • Complete separation from the public during construction

Project Breakdown:

  • Hard Costs: $29,740,462
  • Soft Costs: $3,549,702 (Totaling $33,290,164)
  • Relocation of Current Police Department and Owner's Contingency: $5,276,023

Total Project Cost: $38,566,188 

*See Project Budget Breakdown here*

Cost Per Square Foot: $951

Construction Period: Approximately sixteen (16) months

Important Note: To ensure the smooth execution of this project, we'll need to account for the relocation of the Police Department during the construction duration.

We are committed to transparency and community involvement throughout this process. For any questions or additional information, please feel free to reach out.

Thank you for your continued support as we work together to create a safer and more efficient future for our community.
