Lenexa leans toward building new public safety complex in more centralized location

Lenexa city leaders are considering building a new public safety building on the current site on 87th Street Parkway or moving it to a more centralized location.

Location, cost and efficiencies within the Lenexa Police Department drove discussions this week, as city leaders consider whether to build a new public safety complex on the current site at 12500 W. 87th St. Parkway or relocate the facility to a more centralized location within the city, on city-owned property at Prairie Star Parkway and Britton Street.

Nothing official has been decided, but comments from city leaders indicate they show support for the more centralized location, which has more room for future expansion than the current site and will also be cheaper to build.
