Project Schedule

Project Details

 

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.
