Proposition B - Public Services Complex
Project Cost: $33,000,000
- Construction of a Public Services Complex
- Proposed complex would house Public Works, Utilities, Parks, Fleet Maintenance, Building Maintenance, Engineering and Capital Projects departments
- Proposed complex would provide proper office space, adequately shelter large equipment, and centralize city services including vehicle fleet maintenance and fueling station
Proposed Project Location:
- Airport Avenue next to the current Parks and Recreation Facility
Why is a Public Services Complex Needed?
- Several of the buildings are over 50 years old and no longer meet the City’s needs and growth.
- Several facilities in the floodway have flooded 3 times since 2015 and the Brazos Riverbank is sloughing and encroaching into the property.
- The Public Services departments are spread out in separate facilities, causing inefficiencies.
- These facilities are operating at or beyond capacity and need to be expanded to meet the needs of current and future growth in staff.
- American Disability Act (ADA) and Texas Accessibility Standards (TAS) are not being met in older buildings.
- The fuel island is 27 years old, and the useful life of the underground tanks is 30 years at which time they would have to be replaced.
- There is not adequate space for vehicles, equipment, tools and supplies to maintain and store over 300 pieces of rolling stock.
- Tools, equipment and supplies are not properly secured.
