Oakland Park: Building for Our 2
” officially commenced with the demolition of the City’s former wastewater treatment plant at 5100 NE 12
Terrace on October 3
The City projects the 10-year program, “Oakland Park: Building for our Our 2
Century,” will be completed in time to coincide with Oakland Park’s Centennial Celebration in 2029.
The demolition of the former wastewater treatment plant is the first step in building the City’s new Public Works complex and emergency operations center at the 5100 NE 12th Terrace location off Commercial Boulevard.
The new complex will help consolidate all of Oakland Park’s Public Works Divisions into a single location. This allows the City to relocate its Public Works divisions currently operating adjacent to the central park/Collins area off NE 38
Street/Park Lane East between NW Third & NW Fifth Avenue.
The nearly 20-acre central park area is proposed as a potential home to Oakland Park’s new Library, a new, larger community center to replace Collins Community Center, a cool splash pad, and other parks, leisure, athletic, recreation, and cultural amenities that serve all ages of our city’s diverse population.
for the City’s Comprehensive Facilities Plan will be held Wednesday,
at Collins Community Center at 6 p.m.
This meeting will provide an opportunity for the community to provide critical input on the City Park Master Plan and Facilities Design Guidelines.
