Glen Ellyn Trustees are leaning toward possibly moving the Police Department to Panfish Park, which is owned by the village. This option was preferable to refurbishing the existing site on Duane Street or moving it to Spring Avenue Rec Center, which belongs to the Park District, according to Trib Local.
The Panfish Park option is estimated to cost about $17.5 million, according to documents provided by the village. The current police facility is a former school building. Upgrade and expansion of that building would be about $16.4 million, according to estimates provided to trustees.
Trustees also discussed moving the entire government center to Panfish Park, freeing up the site on Duane for new businesses to come into town.
