The most recent public meeting held by the City Planning & Public Services Departments regarding the site selection for the new District 5 Police HQ was on Thursday, May 24. This meeting reviewed the process by which the 37 possible site were narrowed to 9 possible sites. Of the 9 possible sites, 4 sites were noted to have met the highest number of the selection criteria.
These 4 sites are as follows:
- Central Parkway
- Dane & Knowlton
- Hamilton Avenue
The next steps in the site selection process are as follows:
- Chief of Police and City administration take public input into consideration and make site recommendation to City Manager & Council.
- Begin property acquisition (Summer 2018)
Following site selection, the City will also form a Community Advisory Group to provide input to the design of the building including art and a public space to uniquely represent all 8 neighborhoods in Police District 5. The Advisory group will have approximately one meeting a month. CTM Trustees are hopeful that some Clifton residents will join this Advisory Group.
