What prompted the City of Xenia to pursue this project? Why is the project needed?
The Xenia Police Division (XPD) for many years has been operating solely out of the basement of City Hall. Currently, the area occupied by XPD is approximately 6,000 square feet. A recent space needs analysis completed by a local architectural firm concluded that the current space of the Xenia Police Division is slightly less than half of the space needed for a department of its size. In addition, given the current interest rate environment, if the city were to ever undertake a remedy to this problem, now would be the right time to do so.
