Emergency Services Complex

Verona Emergency Services Complex
Police, Fire, Rescue

45+ Years Overdue

The 1978 Verona Master Plan, as well as subsequent Master Plans, have acknowledged the need for a relocated and updated Verona Police Department (VPD). The Verona Fire Department (VFD) and Verona Rescue Squad (VRS) are currently not up to code across many areas. Prior administrations have shied away, until now.

✔ Increase in residents = increase of staff = increase of department needs
✔ Aging infrastructure
✔ Each department was evaluated for deficiencies, needs and improvements
✔ 21+ solutions explored over the course of five years in order to address needs
✔ Most cost-effective and long-term solution is what is being suggested

Planning with You in Mind
