Re: SMCG Space Needs Plan Update

History:

A report of the Space Needs Task Force was completed in 1994, and research summaries in 1993, which included 10 and 20-year space needs analyses that included space needs projections for SMCG thru 2013. In 2014 space needs analysis was conducted for the library, jail, Sheriff, A&HS; R&P, and Health Department. The CSMC approved a Sheriff’s Headquarters and evidence storage CIP phase-in project in CIP.

Summary:

NO CITIZENS WERE PART OF THE SPACE NEEDS STUDY – JUST BUREAUCRATS

A Space Needs Group was formed consisting of representatives from Alcohol Beverage Board, A&HS; Elections Board; R&P; LUGM; Treasurer; IT; DPW&T; and Sheriff’s Office. The Space Needs Group met in Winter 2018 and presented to the CSMC Jan 15 & 29th, 2019, for review. A conference call was held with representatives of the Sheriff’s Office, and Board of Elections. Alcohol Beverage Board, DPWT, Information Technology, A&HS, HR, and Finance in July 2020 to update the information.
