Clive Public Safety Center

(515) 223-6220 8800 Hickman RD, Clive, IA50325
The City of Clive has purchased the former Slumberland located at 8800 Hickman RD which has been demolished to make room for construction of a new combined fire and police department. The proposed building will be approximately 44,640 s.f. and will include the fire station, the police station, administrative areas, a living area, a training room, and other meeting rooms.

The Clive Public Safety Center is being financed with the  Local Option Sales and Services Tax (LOSST) which was approved by Clive voters in both Dallas and Polk County.  This funding strategy enables the City to advance the project without raising property taxes.   Visit the City's LOSST page for more information on how the Clive is utilizing the LOSST revenue tool.

The new Clive Public Safety Center has been a top strategic priority for the City Council for multiple years.  Initial planning started in 2012.  The building is scheduled to open in late 2021.

Project Update - February 16, 2020:   Structural steel in the central area of the building is being set.  Metal decking in the apparatus bays and roofing will be completed later this month.  Underground utility work continues.  Weather permitting, grading for the stormwater facilities on the north side of the building will start in February and rooftop mechanical equipment will arrive.

Project Update - January 8, 2020:  
Horizontal direction boring for storm sewer installation at the Chin Evangelical Church has been completed.  Underground utilities continued to progress.  Access roads have been constructed for precast mobilization and installation.  Pavement removal and grading continue.  Site water utilities have been 90% completed.  Later this month structural steel and metal decking will begin as well as more precast installations.

Project Update - December 2, 2020:  The building pad has been prepped with aggregate subbase and all building footings have been poured and precast embeds installed.  Cast-in-place curb walls have been completed on the concrete foundations where exterior framed walls will be installed.  Underground plumbing utilities rough-in has begun and stormwater, water, and sanitary utility installation continue.  In December precast installation will start.

Project Update - October 21, 2020: Excavation work on the site continues with utility work, grading, and preparation for the installation of the gravel pilings for the building footings over the next few weeks. The piling work will likely cause some vibration at and near the site while the pilings are being pounded into place. This will be followed by concrete work for the footings.

Project Update - October 8, 2020:  
The City held a groundbreaking for the new facility located at 8800 Hickman Road. 

Project Update - September 25, 2020:   
At their September 24th meeting, the Clive City Council awarded contracts totaling over $10.5 million for construction of the new Clive Public Safety Center. The approved bids came in over $1.5 million lower than budget estimates, which enabled the Council to also approve bid alternates for a solar panel array that is projected to pay for itself in 15 years, and an ultraviolet light air purifying system that will help decrease the circulation of airborne pathogens in the building.  Including the alternate packages, the total building construction cost will be $10,807,108 which is 11% less than budgeted estimates.  By law, the City is required to accept the lowest responsible bidder for each construction package.  Bid and contract information is available in the Council's meeting packet here (starting page 174).
