Citygate to Conduct Assessments for New Temecula Police Station
Citygate Associates will be conducting a needs assessment and evaluating potential sites for a new City of Temecula police headquarters and patrol station.
The Temecula City Council voted 5-0, July 13 to authorize a $42,451 contract with Citygate for the needs assessment which will include estimating the desired size. The city manager was authorized to approve additional authorizations of up to $4,300 for the work.
Citygate will estimate the current personnel needs and factor an expansion for Temecula’s future growth. Citygate will work with JKA Architecture, who will utilize the information on necessary personnel to address building needs including outside spaces. The total space needs will provide gross acreage needs before zoning setbacks and landscaping. Up to three sites identified by the city will be assessed. If the site has an existing building which is large enough to accommodate the anticipated needs, Citygate will recommend a follow-up study which will include a full assessment of the existing building systems, the required design upgrades, and the cost to upgrade the building to meet police station needs.
