Better planning needed

We’re happy to see that council wants a pause on planning for a $34-million upgrading of Guelph Police headquarters. The city wants to know if there are better options to build a brand new building elsewhere that could also include fire department headquarters, possibly freeing up both the police and fire HQ sites downtown for sale and redevelopment. Police Chief Bryan Larkin told council on Oct. 1 that police made errors in originally planning the headquarters upgrading with a $13.6-million price tag. Last Wednesday, he told council that police “didn’t put our dots together” in planning for the Clair Road facility that’s used by police, fire and ambulance.
With so much bad planning having occurred, it makes a lot of sense to pause and take another good, hard look at better police premises.
