GARDEN GROVE City Hall (OC Tribune).

Plans for the city’s most significant civic buildings may begin to take shape on Tuesday when the Garden Grove City Council meets. 

The council will be asked to approve purchasing a two-story building in the Civic Center area for possible eventual use as the location for a new public safety building.

According to a staff report, the city would purchase the building at 11277 Garden Grove Blvd. (about one block east of Euclid Street) from KJ Investments Group LLC for $8,049,000.

The site could be used as an interim facility while the police department is relocated to another Civic Center spot, or as the location for a new facility.

Also on Tuesday night, the council will hear about progress in creating a “Navigation Center” for the unsheltered in concert with the cities of Fountain Valley and Westminster.

All three cities have approved a memorandum of understanding for the creation of the facility. The agreement gives much of the oversight for the center to the “Host City,” presumably Garden Grove as the largest of the three.

At a previous council meeting, City Manager Scott Stiles said that city staff were looking at locations in the industrial areas northwest of Harbor Boulevard and Westminster Avenue.

The council will meet at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Meeting Center, 11300 Stanford Ave.
