PHOENIX — Mesa officials broke ground Monday on a complex that will house a fire station and police substation.
The approximately 50,000-square-feet Northeast Mesa Public Safety Facility located near Power and Brown roads will work to address emergency response needs in the community, according to a press release.
“The addition of this joint facility is an important and strategic investment in Mesa’s public safety operations that will improve response and increase efficiencies in this part of our city,” Mayor John Giles said in the release.
The project is being paid for through 2018 public safety bonds and capital general funds.
“I appreciate the voters’ confidence in the bond program to ensure Mesa’s police and fire and medical teams are staffed, equipped and prepared to respond to the changing needs of our growing community,” Giles said.
The facility will include four pull-through apparatus bays that are capable of holding two fire crews, one battalion crew and an ambulance crew.
The police substation — the first to open in Mesa in nearly 10 years — will be capable of housing 150 people.
Fire crews and police will share a variety of spaces, including a lobby, a conditioning room and conference rooms.
Construction for the project is slated to be completed by the end of 2024.
