The Menlo Park Police Department will hold a groundbreaking ceremony Thursday, Feb. 28, for a $2.2 million police substation and city service center to be built at the intersection of Willow Road and Ivy Drive.
The ceremony will start at 1:30 p.m.
Construction of the two-story, 3,800-square-foot facility is expected to be finished in October.
The new center will function as a satellite station of the main police station, as well as a service center for the community, according to the city.
Residents will be able to obtain police reports, parking permits, pay water bills and receive other useful information from the center, the city says.
The building will replace an existing police substation at Newbridge Street and Willow Road, according to the city. It will be more than three times larger than the current substation.
