New Public Safety Facility for Van Alstyne

In an era of growth and development, Van Alstyne is taking a significant step to bolster public safety by planning a new, state-of-the-art facility for its police and fire departments. This $20 million project is not just an investment in infrastructure but a commitment to the safety and well-being of our community. Located at the corner of Waco St. and Blassingame Ave., the new site remains central to Van Alstyne and provides easy access to Hwy 5 and Hwy 75.

The process to realize this facility has been meticulous and collaborative. Input from 14 distinguished architects and studies conducted by two external companies have played a crucial role in shaping the size and design of the facility. A project manager will also be brought on board for this project. This comprehensive approach ensures that the facility will meet the highest standards of functionality and efficiency.

The chosen designer, Brandstetter Carroll, Inc., is working closely with Police Chief Barnes, Fire Chief Dockery, and the City Manager. Their joint efforts focus on creating a design that not only addresses current requirements but also anticipates the needs of our community for years to come.

This new facility is more than a building; it’s a symbol of our city’s dedication to ensuring a safe, secure, and thriving community for all residents of Van Alstyne. Stay tuned as we continue on this exciting journey towards a safer future.
