Over the summer, officials have been working with USA Architects to create concepts for Collingswood's new police and fire building. USA used image polling at a June forum to help determine building styles that residents preferred and are working to incorporate "green" building standards and grants where available.
"This new facility is a necessity for providing safety services considering the state of our current police and fire buildings. But it’s equally important that the new facility fits into our community so feedback is a huge part of this project," said Collingswood Mayor James Maley. "We're hoping to show first concepts and really hear what people like and don't like about this new space. Like all our projects, it really needs to match the fabric of town."
Public Safety facility feedback forums will be November 7 and December 5 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Collingswood Community Center, 30 W Collings Ave.
The December 5 event will also include tours of the current police and fire buildings starting at 5:30 p.m. at the Fire Department (20 W Collings Ave).
