COLD SPRING — A renovated city office building and a new police and fire station could be in the works in Cold Spring.

The city has been working with HMA Architects to do a space study of their current facility. The company shared their findings at Tuesday’s council meeting. The company suggests the city renovates its current building to include administration and the library and build a separate facility for the fire and police departments.

City Administrator Brigid Murphy says the council is still discussing the project but the idea of having the police and fire stay under the same roof can be beneficial to the city.

“Having a joint space for those two departments [police and fire] would provide joint training areas, joint conference rooms. And be able to provide the needed space without having to doubling up on those and increasing the cost.”

The current building houses all four departments, library, administration, police and fire.

Two possible locations are being considered for the fire and police station. One is the Fuchs Farm on County Road 2, the other is Granite Landing 5 which is near Main Street and 2nd Avenue North.

HMA Architects estimates the project to be around $8.9 million. The council will be discussing more details on the project at its March 14th meeting.
