In mid-May 2017 officials expect an 18-month or so construction process to begin across Patterson Way from the current station, 20 N. Division St.
At that time, we will close Patterson Way to thru traffic between Division Street and East Michigan Avenue. You can still access City Hall via both driveways, as well as the handicapped parking to the Calhoun County Justice Center, off Patterson. The first phase of work will last four to six weeks. Stay tuned for more updates as construction progresses, as well as information on an official groundbreaking.
Officials have visited with Neighborhood Planning Councils, offered station tours, and participated in community conversations to collect your input on the future of our police station.
The current station, built in the early 1970s, was assessed by architects. Age and lack of space contribute to issues that have resulted in the planning for a new building. The new building will accommodate our staff and their space/storage needs, as well as offer new community spaces where we can meet with you, and really connect.
If you didn't get the chance to come tour the station, you can take the virtual tour with Sgt. Jeff Case by watching the video below.
