We have reviewed this project four times. We approved the pre-design, concept design, and schematic design in May 2014, March 2015, and August 2015, respectively. On January 21, 2016, we approved the design development phase of the North Precinct project proposal with several conditions and recommendations. Although we will not review the project again in its entirety, we will conduct an administrative review.
The Department of Finance and Administrative Services (FAS) is designing a new North Precinct Police Station at N 130th St and Aurora Ave N. The existing North Precinct, located on College Way N just south of N Northgate Way, is severely overcrowded and cannot expand on its current site.
The proposed design includes a three-story building for precinct operations and public spaces with a separate three-story parking structure. The four-acre site is bounded by Aurora Ave N, N 130th St, Stone Ave N, and N 128th St. The station will open in 2018.
