The new design allows for 16,800 square feet, down from the 19,500 square feet the committee recommended to the Board of Selectmen on Dec. 16. The larger building was expected to cost around $16 million, which the selectmen nixed, tasking the committee to come in with a proposal for $14 million. The present station measures 11,000 square feet. The first floor of the two-story building would include an entry lobby off of which would be dispatch. There would also be a records room; public interview room; three cells — one of which would be handicap accessible; space for booking, prisoner processing and holding; evidence storage; a lab; general storage; weapons storage; armory; communications equipment and IT; a small kitchen; restroom; and mechanical and electrical rooms.
