City Looking For Public Input On Facilities Study
December 11, 2020
The City of Golden Valley has published the Facilities Study Open House that details the City’s long-term building needs and it’s plan to meet those needs. Residents are asked to watch the open house below and take the survey by Jan 11.
The study was prompted by a need to update aging facilities that don’t efficiently support the City’s current or future operational needs, meet standards for gender equity and modern staffing models, or cause inefficiencies and safety concerns resulting from locating heavy equipment in Golden Valley’s main business district. Also, a recent study of the downtown area identified opportunities for private development at the northeast quadrant of Golden Valley Rd and Winnetka Ave, where the City Hall campus is located.
The Facilities Study goals include developing:
- guiding principles for the construction of new facilities
- schematic plans for public works, fire, police, and City Hall buildings
- site selection criteria for locating a remote fire station and a public works facility
- a long-term staging and phasing plan and cost estimates for construction of new facilities
- detailed site preparation plans and costs to decommission existing facilities and prepare them for redevelopment
The study will result in a long-term, phased approach for the City to follow as it plans for its facilities needs.
In October, the City Council appointed a task force comprised of residents and business representatives to provide insight and perspective throughout the study’s process. This virtual open house is the first of two community engagement efforts planned to obtain input from residents.
After watching the video, take this survey. The survey will be live Dec 11-Jan 11.
