  • A new police station design reminiscent of the Lithia Motors headquarters was selected by the City Council Thursday.
    "It's a very good design," Councilor Daniel Bunn said.
    Most councilors voiced support for the plan, though some suggested adding a few curves or rounded corners to break up the horizontal and vertical lines.
    "This is very nice, but I'm concerned it's going to be dated in a few years," Councilor John Michaels said.
    The council was offered two options for the design of the building selected by a committee.
    The council chose a plan that features lots of glass, vertical lines, tan-colored masonry and aluminum panels.
    The other option that wasn't favored features darker colors and a front that curved outwards.
    The 47,292-square-foot police headquarters will have three stories with the entrance facing Ivy Street. A secure parking garage will be built behind the headquarters.
    The first floor will feature a lobby, a community room, a records area, an interview room and locker rooms for female and male officers.
    The second floor will have processing and interview rooms as well as offices for investigators and patrol officers.
    The third floor will feature training and briefing rooms, administrative offices and a corner office for the police chief.
