Mesa Mayor Scott Smith said the new station will be a major factor in the revitalization of the Fiesta District.
For the first time in a decade, the City of Mesa is getting a new police station.
The Fiesta District Police Station, which is being built near Festia Mall, will relieve overcrowding at the Dobson Police Station and enhance the revitalization of the Fiesta District.
"This is another great day for Mesa. Public safety is a top priority for our City Council and our residents, who voted overwhelmingly to build this police station and four new fire stations in Mesa," Mayor Scott Smith said.
The approximately $10.1 million construction project is funded from general obligation bonds for public safety approved by Mesa voters in November, 2008.
The 34,000 square foot building is designed to include the Watch Command, a locker room/fitness area, a community room and a fueling station. It will be the third LEED (U.S. Green Building Council Leadership in Environmental and Energy Design registration) certified City building in Mesa.
The new police station is scheduled to open in the summer of 2013.
