POLICE STATION BUILDING COMMITTEE
In November 2006, Mayor Mary Clare Higgins appointed a committee to oversee the site selection, planning, design, and construction of a new Police Station for the City of Northampton.
The current station located at 29 Center Street, constructed in 1965 to serve both the Registry of Motor Vehicles and the Northampton Police Department, has outlived its capacity for modern policing operations.
A 2003 "Needs Assessment and Facility Master Plan" was prepared by Rebanks, Pepper, Littlewood Architects, Inc. of Toronto examining the current and future facility needs of the Northampton Police Department. A copy of that study is downloadable HERE.
