newport city hall, police & fire department | newport,mn (on the drawing board)
The City of Newport selected Brunton Architects & Engineers to design their newly proposed City Hall/Police Station/Fire Station facility on a City owned lot in Newport, MN, a suburb of Minneapolis/St. Paul. The City’s existing City Hall and Fire Station had reached their useful life expectancy and the City needed a new facility. The new joint-use building includes different amenities for each department. The City Hall has a large council chamber, private offices, and a public service counter. The Police Department has interview rooms, evidence sorting, and two squad car bays. The Fire Department has apparatus bays to accommodate 10 fire apparatus, and a storm shelter. The building also incorporates a training room, exercise room, day room, steam showers, and a warming kitchen.
