Creve Coeur officials unveiled schematic designs for a new 25,000 square foot, two-story police station to be located north of the existing Government Center on New Ballas Road at Magna Carta. If the plans are approved, construction could begin as early as December or January with an anticipated 12-month construction period.The design addresses many of the issues raised in the Facilities Space Needs Analysis which was completed in 2015. The site plan features a new secondary access road for police personnel off of Magna Carta, improving the parking configuration which currently creates hazards between police vehicles and community center patrons. The building will also include a training center and dedicated Emergency Operations Center, which is a critical component of managing public safety and security during major incidents.The schematic design, which was completed by ArchImages, is the result of several months of researching and planning. The architect worked with a user group consisting of key police and public works personnel, a citizen task force with representatives from key city committees, and a steering committee consisting of the City Administrator, Chief of Police and Public Works Director.Key considerations in the design included improved functionality and efficiency, addressing safety and security concerns, and planning for future growth.The Planning and Zoning Commission will review plans for the proposed Police Station on Monday, August 7, followed by City Council review tentatively scheduled for Monday, August 14. City staff anticipates opening bids for construction in early November. The project’s funding comes from voter-approved general obligation bonds totaling $10.69 million.For more information, visit www.creve-coeur.org/policefacilities or contact Jim Heines, Public Works Director, at email@example.com or (314) 872-2538.
