Police and Fire Facility Project

Minnetonka’s police and fire facilities are receiving a major upgrade to address the city’s safety and security needs.

The project includes construction of a new fire station on the city campus, and repurposing the existing police and fire facility into a remodeled police station.

Construction began in March 2020 and is expected to last up to two years.
