The new $20.3 million Davenport Police station is being constructed with several environmentally-friendly amenities, including three greenroofs areas - one area off of a break room will be a rooftop garden where the department's 200 employees can use the space.





The project currently has enough points for a Silver LEED rating, but Davenport Police Lt. Mike Venema is hoping for Gold certification, which won't be known until its occupancy scheduled for August, 2007.
According to Quad-Cities Online, see below, "The police department received a $65,000 grant from River Action's Retain the Rain program and a $255,000 rebate from MidAmerican Energy for building an environmentally friendly structure.



"The new 97,000-square-foot police station is a "step up" from the current 27,000-square-foot station, Lt. Venema said. It will be funded through the sale of bonds. Kathy Wine, executive director of River Action, said it's the first green-roof building in the Quad-Cities."
