12-09-13 ESTIMATES IN FOR NEW MPD HEADQUARTERS

Dec 09, 2013 -- 8:26am

ESTIMATES FOR THE NEW MEDFORD POLICE HEADQUARTERS ARE OUT, AND AT 21 MILLION, ARE NEARLY TRIPLE THE COST OF A DESIGN SUBMITTED IN 2004, RAISING QUESTIONS FROM THE PREVIOUS ARCHITECT. GENE ABELL OF THE ABELL ARCHITECTURAL GROUP QUESTIONED THE NEED FOR A 6 MILLION DOLLAR PARKING STRUCTURE, ACCOUNTING FOR PART OF THE COST INCREASE IN THE CURRENT PROJECT. CITY COUNCILOR DANIEL BUNN SAYS THE CITY CONDUCTED AN EXTENSIVE ASSESSMENT AND COMPARISON WITH OTHER CITIES, AND COULD HAVE JUSTIFIED AN EVEN LARGER BUILDING, BUT STRUCK THE RIGHT BALANCE COST AND THE FUTURE NEEDS OF THE MPD.
