The PVE City Hall complex, which includes our Police Department and the LA County Fire Department, PV Homes Association and City Hall, is over 65 years old. The complex has not been adequately maintained and is non-compliant with the current building standards and codes. There are issues with safety and compliance that need to be addressed in order for the building to be able to serve our community.
The City has limited funds due to budget issues over the last few years, partially due to the loss of Measure D, to increasing costs and added requirements from the State of California.
In order to allow for this important assessment to be done to find out a total cost for city capital requirements, concerned citizens and the PVE Foundation provided a grant for this study to be completed.
The project is a needs assessment which means that time has been taken to determine the issues with the building and to put together the study and analysis that can be viewed by the City Council and the public.
There was an initial announcement to the Council and residents at the City Council Meeting on 7/13/2021.
It has not been appropriate to engage the public since there has not been anything to report. Public communication or involvement would be appropriate after the study results are complete and they are delivered to the City Council and residents.
