Public Safety Center
Planning and design of Beaverton’s new Public Safety Center is underway. The city, along with a project team including representatives from Shiels Obletz Johnsen, FFA Architecture & Interiors, and Skanska Construction, are working on programming, design and coordination of our new earthquake resistant police and emergency management building.
What to expect this year
|Design Phase Completed:||August 2018|
|Bid / Permit Phase:||August - November 2018|
|Demolition / Early Site Work:||Summer 2018|
|Construction Start:||December 2018 - early 2019|
The Public Safety Center will be built at the existing site of the Beaverton Activities Center, which is city-owned property near the corner of SW Hall Blvd and SW Allen Blvd.
The Public Safety Center is funded by a voter-approved bond measure that will not increase residents’ bond tax rate because it replaces retiring Beaverton City Library construction bonds. The rate is about 20 cents per $1,000 of assessed value. Property owners will continue to pay about $4.20 per month for property with an assessed value of $250,000.
