I wish there would have been more in the story about the fire department. They
are moving into the new building as well.
What is with all the sour grape comments. Great building, long overdue. Ultra
Bob all buildings eventually become obsolete. What is your point.
It is very hard for me to see that the new public safety building will be better
in any sense of the word in the service to the people of Salt Lake City and Utah
in general.It will be interesting to see if the people of Salt Lake
City will be able to see any difference in the service received from the public
safety group. It will be interesting to see how many years go bye
before the new building becomes obsolete. The taxes we pay for
public safety should not be used to provide a tourist attraction, a public park
and any thing else not associated and not needed for the public safety
Nice architecture. If only the city could have kept the GSA from building the
ugliest building in Salt Lake - the new federal court.
Nothing exceeds like excess!Please tell me again why the people of
Salt Lake County wouldn't be better off with one fire agency (Unified Fire)
and one police agency (County Sheriff's Dept.) and one dispatch center.At least it has public areas to give the homeless population somewhere
else to go when they tire of the library.
When they claim "net-zero" will they show their utility bills output and
what power was generated into the system?How will these solar panels
produce power during the winter and maintain this "net-zero".Does the extreme rise in costs to make a "net-zero" building, justify
raising the taxes on those of us that struggle to heat and cool our own home?I agree they needed a new building. But, the hype that they are
creating over "green" buildings in my opinion is fluff.
The idea of community policing architecture is overrated.I sure will I
could afford a new building.
