Residents invited to suggest names for the East Patrol Division Station and Crime Lab Campus, or an individual part of the campus, should carry a name other than East Campus. The campus is currently under construction at 27th Street and Prospect Avenue.
The City is currently accepting naming suggestions here at KC Momentum and at communications@kcmo.
City Council members and City staff will be on hand to listen to public recommendations and comments. This hearing will begin a public process to examine whether a name should be attached to the campus, as well as who could be honored and why. If a name is given to the facility, it would mark the first time any KCMO police station is named in honor of an individual.
What: Public Hearing
Construction has already begun on this $74 million project, and is scheduled for completion by winter 2015-2016. The facilities are scheduled to open in early 2016.
The East Campus is being built with the Public Safety Sales Tax approved by Kansas City voters in 2002 and renewed in 2010.
The new East Campus will feature a police division station, a state-of-the-art crime lab, and a property and evidence depository. These new facilities will replace the previous outdated buildings.
