If you look at the information above you will see the proposed exterior elevation and inside floor layout for the proposed Public Safety facility. I don’t believe you will find any areas of wasted space. We were very careful to not over build at this time but to design what was needed to move us into the future with the ability to expand only if and when we need to as no doubt Ozark will continue to grow just as the need for public safety services. We focused diligently on designing a public safety facility that would achieve maximum efficiency thus enabling us to provide the best service to the citizens of Ozark. I feel confident in saying we do not currently have buildings that are “over built” but certainly have buildings that are over utilized and reaching their maximum capacity. Even in the case of The OC we have found a use for each and every area within that facility.
