Reminder: Open house for new SPD North Precinct is Saturday

October 22nd, 2013 · Comments

The community open house to get more information about the Seattle Police Department’s planned new North Precinct station is this Saturday, Oct. 26, at Bitter Lake Community Center gym, 13035 Linden Ave. N.

The precinct’s proposed new site is on the southeast corner of Aurora Avenue North and North 130th Street. SPD has outgrown its current North Precinct at 10049 College Way.

The City Council needs to review and approve legislation authorizing the property acquisition; that’s expected in December. SPD hopes to open the new station in late 2018.

The new station will be about 60,000 square feet and be able to accommodate up to 370 officers and civilian staff, with on-site multistory parking for patrol cars, visitors and staff. It will also offer community meeting space and include public art.
