City breaks ground on Police and Fire Facility
The City of Minnetonka broke ground on its Police and Fire Facility project at a ceremony Monday, March 2 on the city’s Civic Center Campus.
To support Minnetonka’s safety and security needs, the city will construct a new fire station on the city campus, and will repurpose the existing police and fire facility into a remodeled police station.
It’s been more than 30 years since either facility was updated. Since then, staff and service calls have greatly increased, as have storage and parking needs.
“We’re excited to officially break ground on this important project after years of planning and community outreach,” said City Manager Geralyn Barone. “The new facilities will better accommodate the police and fire department’s continued growth and evolution, and ensure they are able to provide the best possible public safety services to our community for years to come."
Construction begins in early March
Construction is expected to last up to two years, and begins with tree removal in the coming week. Wood from the removed trees will be reclaimed and used in the new facility.
