Council Appoints Police Station Task Force, Hiring Architect

Following Creve Coeur residents’ approval of Proposition P in the November 2016 election, the city is focusing on the design and financing of a new police station to be located directly north of the Government Center on North New Ballas Road. 

To ensure citizen input is included in the design process, the City Council has appointed a citizens’ Facilities Task Force to advise on the design of the new building. Membership on the task force consists of representatives from various Creve Coeur boards, committees and commissions including two representatives from the Finance Committee and one representative from the Planning and Zoning Commission, the Energy and Environment Committee, the Horticulture, Ecology and Beautification Committee, the Police and Safety Committee, the Arts Committee, and the Stormwater Committee. James Faron will serve as the City Council liaison to the task force.

The city has also begun the selection process to hire an architect. A total of 10 firms responded to the request for qualifications. Interviews with the finalists were scheduled as of this writing with approval by City Council anticipated for Monday, February 13. The city is also working with Navigate Building Solutions as owner’s representative to manage the project, provide cost and quality control and ensure the project is completed on schedule and within budget.

The design phase is expected to take seven months with construction beginning in the fall. The new police facility could be completed as early as November 2018. 

To fund the new police station, the city has begun working with its financial advisor on the issuance of general obligation bonds, which is expected to occur this spring. The bonds will total $10.7 million, as approved by voters in the November 2016 election. The estimated $0.08 tax levy will sunset after 20 years.
