SL Council hears space study results

Paul Ragozzino of Short Elliot Hendrickson (SEH), Inc., presented the Silver Lake City Council with the results of a space needs study of the city buildings at the council’s Monday night meeting.
The council had ordered the study last year to find out what space was needed to house the city’s departments. The study looked at the city hall/police department, public works, the fire station and city auditorium.
The study found that to properly house these departments, 31,597 square feet was needed. The city facilities currently occupy 13,700 square feet.
In an ideal city hall, the building, which would be Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessible, would include office space for two work stations, meeting room, break room, storage, reception area, restrooms, council chambers, information technology (IT) closet and space for mechanical and electrical equipment totaling 3,511 square feet. The current city hall is 450 square feet.
The police station, currently 650 square feet, would need 3,065 square feet that would include a reception area, open office for officers, offices for the chief and full-time officer, conference room, gear storage, work room, restrooms, interview room, secure evidence storage, electrical and mechanical storage and a garage for the vehicle.
