Building Our Second Century - Public Works

news 012224

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 last Spring. This brand-new facility will include Public Works Operations and Administration and a new Emergency Operations Center. 

Recent work included the completion of the on-site drainage system, glazing of the Operations Building, and pouring a concrete slab at the Fleet Building. Ongoing construction includes HVAC and electrical work in the Operations Building, Fleet Building, and Warehouse. The exterior of the Operations Building is also getting a fresh coat of paint! In the coming weeks, work will continue inside the Operations and Fleet Buildings, with the framing of doors and windows and the installation of drywall. 

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. Click here for more information.
