What exactly is the project that is being proposed by the City of Xenia?
There are 2 main elements to the project. First is the construction of a new 24,000-square-foot City Administration Facility at the southeast corner of South Whiteman and East Main streets on property that currently serves as a public parking lot. The 2nd main facet of the project is to renovate the current City Hall at 101 North Detroit Street and expand the Xenia Police Division to occupy both the 1st floor and basement. It also includes the relocation of the Probation Office back to City Hall from current leased space on East Main Street. The current City Hall will serve as a Justice Center that will house the following: Xenia Municipal Court, Probation, Law Department, Victim Assistance Program, Xenia Police Division, and Communications Center (911).
