Cincinnati selects site for new District 3 building
Cincinnati's city manager said the new location for Police District 3 will be at 2300 Ferguson Road in Westwood.
Milton Dohoney said in a press release Thursday the site was selected because it's located in one of three high-call neighborhoods, it's available for development, it rated high on constructability and it provides physical accessibility for service to the 14-neighborhoods in District 3.
The city is paying $325,000 for the site.
The release said the city next week will release an RFQ to select the design/build team by the end of the summer.
A groundbreaking for the new building could happen this fall with construction completed in the spring 2015.
The new facility will replace the existing location at 3201 Warsaw Avenue in East Price Hill.
The city considered 27 proposed sites in a search for the new location.
Police District 3 encompasses 14 city neighborhoods on the west side of Cincinnati. Those are: East Price Hill, East Westwood, English Woods, Lower Price Hill, Millvale, North Fairmount, Riverside, Roll Hill, Sayler Park, Sedamsville, South Cumminsville, South Fairmount, West Price Hill and Westwood.
