The City of Oakland Park continues building our second century to create a variety of new facilities and amenities for the centennial in 2029. Progress continues on the new Public Works complex at 5100 NE 12th Terrace, which broke ground at the end of March. This brand-new facility will include Public Works Operations and Administration and a new Emergency Operations Center.
The walls of the operations building and the columns and beams for the warehouse are up. FP&L installed the transformer and active temporary powers. Contractors are forming the 2nd-floor operation deck and the panels of the fleet building. Later this month, the contractor plans to work on the roof and install exfiltration trenches.
The new complex represents a municipal investment of over $26.5 million into its infrastructure and service delivery. The Complex will house the City’s water, wastewater, stormwater, solid waste, streets, parks maintenance, facilities, and fleet services divisions. Public Works will relocate operations from 3801 NE 5th Avenue to the new complex, freeing up five acres of land that will be incorporated into Phase II of City Park.
Project funding includes $11.5 million from the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, up to $1 million from the FEMA Hazardous Mitigation Grant Program, and approximately $15 million from loan proceeds. For more information, visit the City of Oakland Park website at www.oaklandparkfl.gov.
