The Los Angeles City Council will on Tuesday consider a $29.45 million plan to replace the Los Angeles Police Department's Northeast Division station.
The project would be paid for through the use of $28.45 million in Proposition Q General Obligation Bond funds, which were approved by city voters in 2002, and $500,000 in 2011-12 Police Forfeited Assets monies.
According to the proposal, the remaining funds would be identified by LAPD "over the next two years through the budget process."
In May, the city's Proposition Q Oversight Committee approved the proposal to construct a new Northeast Police Station administrative building at the site of the existing station at 3353 North San Fernando Road.
A previously approved $7.51 plan to renovate the building was put on hold by the bond oversight committee at the request of LAPD, who argued that the former film processing facility was not an adequate space for a police station.
According to the report of City Administrative Officer Miquel A. Santana, LAPD has occupied the 41,000 square foot site since 1983.
Santana's report states that the proposal would not include a new vehicle maintenance and parking structure, as that would push the total cost of the project to nearly $50 million.
The city council will also hear a report from Santana about the steps that would need to be taken to remediate environmental contamination found at the site and at an adjacent building that was recently demolished.
The Los Angeles City Council will meet on Tuesday, July 19 at 10:00 am inside the John Ferraro Council Chamber, Room 340 of the Los Angeles City Hall, located at 200 N. Spring Street, Los Angeles, Ca, 90012.
