The city of Venice broke ground on Friday, May 17th, 2019 on their new 31,421 square foot Public Safety Complex. Tandem Construction, in partnership with AJAX Building Corporation, are focused on one thing; "Delivering the best quality public safety facility Venice has ever had." Replacing a 25-year-old building, the structure will be able to withstand 157 mile per hour wind speeds, which is the equivalent to a Category 5 Hurricane. In the actual event of a Hurricane, it will double as an Emergency Operations Center for city staff. Thanks to the citizens of Venice, who voted for the $17.6 million dollar project to move forward back in 2016, we were able to be a large part of this great improvement in the community. The site is located on 10 acres along East Venice Avenue, and will be completed in August of 2020.
