Public Safety Complex Opens
The Gainesville Justice Center occupies 52,000 square feet and is open Monday through Friday from 8am-5pm. Municipal Court is held on Monday and Thursday from 11:30am until court adjourns.
Gainesville Fire Station #1 is a 26,000 square foot facility housing a new state-of-the-art slide for firefighters and a 4-engine bay.
The complex also includes a 2+ acre Storm Water Detention and Biodetention pond. The pond was constructed to always hold around 7 feet of water or up to 14 feet during the rainy season.
A planning and space needs analysis for the complex started in the summer of 2007. Construction began in the winter of 2009.
A community-wide celebration is being planned for Saturday, May 7 from 10am-2pm.
