The city, along with a project team including representatives from Shiels Obletz Johnsen, FFA Architecture & Interiors, and Skanska Construction, are working on program coordination and completion of our new earthquake resistant police and emergency management building. The Public Safety Center is located near the corner of SW Hall Blvd and SW Allen Blvd. The building is expected to be completed in summer 2020.
