Construction on this project began in July 2012 and
is expected to be completed by the end of September 2013.
In November 2008, the City of Mesa voters approved a
Public Safety bond election which included the construction of
the Fiesta District Police Station in west Mesa.
The existing Dobson Station was
constructed in 1980 and is insufficient for today’s district
station needs. The existing building is a Police and Fire
shared facility and the building’s capacity concerns have been
brought to the forefront due to the recent decentralization of
resources to the district stations. There is not enough
capacity at the current location to effectively address the
needs of the City, nor is there room for expansion on the site.
The proposed replacement building will include approximately
34,000 square feet for current and future police personnel.
The City acquired a vacant parcel of
land in 2010, approximately 4.9 acres, on the northwest corner
of Grove and Westwood. The site is south of Southern and
east of Alma School. The project will comply with the
Fiesta District design guidelines.
The recommended total award amount
for this project is $10,108,532.50, based on a GMP of
$9,189,575.00 plus an additional $918,957.50 (10% allowance for
change orders). Funding is available from FY 11/12 Public Safety
