[ARCHIVED] City Moving Ahead with New Public Works/HPP Facility


The City is in the process of selecting a design firm to start working on concepts for a new Public Works and Hudson Public Power (HPP) facility. The facility will be located on City-owned land on Hines Hill Road, which was the former location of the Cleveland Youth Development Center.

The current Public Works facility is located in a leased building on Georgetown Road and the HPP facility is on Owen Brown Street. These facilities are undersized and make daily operations difficult. The new combined Public Works and HPP facility will allow ample space for the more than 60 employees and to store and maintain City trucks, plows, and other equipment. The facility will also reduce costs by eliminating the need to lease the current Public Works facility and by combining daily facility operating costs. Having both departments in one spot will also increase efficiencies by eliminating the need to travel back and forth between the two facilities. 

A salt storage facility will be built on the same parcel of land and will serve as the main salt storage area for the City. The facility is proposed to be 7,500 square feet and will hold approximately 10,000 tons of salt.

The design firm will be chosen at the beginning of February, with design work beginning in March. Construction of the facility is expected to begin in April of 2018 and completed in December of 2018. The cost of the project is estimated to be $10 million - $15 million. In the meantime, Public Works will continue to lease the facility on Georgetown Road. HPP will be temporarily moving to the former Ramco warehouse building on Hudson Gate Drive, now owned by the City, to allow the Owen Brown Street HPP property to become part of the new Downtown Phase II development area. 

As the project moves forward, check for updates on the Public Works/HPP Facility project page.
