Public Safety Building

The city’s new public safety building is beginning to take shape, with concrete poured earlier in the week and steel framing taking the project vertical.

“We are super excited,” said Willow Park Fire Chief Mike LeNoir. “It’s refreshing to see progress being made.”

The $4.6 million-dollar building, approved as a bond project by voters in 2016, is estimated for completion in late summer.

The first phase of the steel framing encompassing the police side of the building and the training room has been going up the last few weeks, with the fire side coming soon.

“The PSB progress is making police employees very excited,” Chief of Police Carrie West said. “The steel that is currently in place seems to have given life to the cement slab.”

The new building includes several drive-through truck bays, interview rooms, and locker rooms, as well as expanded living and eating spaces for the fire department.

“We are looking forward to having a more professional facility for the men and women of the WPPD and for the community we serve,” said West.
