The Salem Police station project's design phase is coming to a close. Residents can get a glimpse of the final plans, at a town hall meeting on July 25 at 6 p.m., in the South Salem High School Library, 1910 Church ST SE.
The design team will do a "look back and look ahead" presentation and provide residents with the inside scoop on the floor plans and the community space. "We're pleased to have had so much public involvement in the design process," said Deputy Chief Steve Bellshaw of the Salem Police Support Division. The project team gathered public input in a variety of ways, including an online survey, at meetings held by Salem's many neighborhood associations, and a town hall held in March of this year.
Bellshaw added, "We're also preparing for the start of the site construction phase, so we've invited JE Dunn Construction to be part of the town hall presentation." JE Dunn is the project's construction manager/general contractor. Company representatives will be at the meeting to share the "big picture" on the contracting and construction schedule.
