Police and Government Center Needs Analysis
A key objective contained in the 2013 Creve Coeur Strategic Plan is addressing the City’s long-term facilities needs. In December, 2013, the City Council authorized Bond Architects to conduct a Government Center Needs Analysis Final Report, and subsequently established the Government Center Needs Analysis Task Force. The needs study identified building deficiencies and a variety of options for addressing the city’s long-term facilities needs.
Six options in total were presented; ranging from minor renovations to the existing building, tearing down the Government Center (GC) and replacing it with a new building, moving to a new location and renovating an existing building or construction a new one. The GC Needs Analysis Task Force and City Council deliberated all the options to find the most cost-efficient means to address the necessities outlined in the Feasibility Study. They ultimately proposed the construction of a new Police Station to the north of the existing GC, a new access road from Magna Carta and renovations to the GC.
Project Cost and Financing
The estimated cost of the new Police Station, including all site
Financing for a subsequent renovation to the Government Center, estimated at $5.5 million, would not require a tax increase, with existing reserves and capital improvement fund revenues serving as the proposed revenue sources.
