Lilburn to build new police station

On April 10, 2017, the Lilburn City Council approved a contract with Precision Planning Inc. for professional design services for the future Police and Municipal Court headquarters. PPI also designed the new Lilburn City Hall-Library, so money and time can be saved by using many of the same elements.

The police and court building will be located on previously purchased property on Lawrenceville Highway. The contract fees will not exceed $275,000, and design completion is expected in six months. Construction completion is estimated for the first quarter of 2019. Design and construction will be funded by the 2017 Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax. 

The move will increase police presence on the city’s major thoroughfare. The 9.73-acre location at 4572 Lawrenceville Highway is next to Lilburn Commons office complex, about 0.3 mile north of Indian Trail Road. The vacant site was chosen because it is already developed, all utilities are in place, and it is centrally located on the busy Lawrenceville Highway corridor.

“Relocation of the Lilburn Police Department and Municipal Court to the central business corridor will add public safety visibility, as well as accessibility for our citizens, visitors and business owners,” City Manager Bill Johnsa said.

The police department and municipal court are currently housed at the Calvin Fitchett Municipal Complex next to Lilburn City Park. Once vacated, that building will be demolished to make way for new amenities in the park.
