City to hold dedication for Partnership Activity Center at police department

City officials will dedicate the community meeting hall at the Laurel Police Department on Saturday, Sept. 10 at 10 a.m.

The meeting hall, named the Partnership Activity Center, was the sanctuary of the former First Baptist Church building and is the last area to be renovated as part of the Laurel Police Department's move to the complex at 811 Fifth St. in April 2010. Design plans included adding a kitchen and bathrooms and making the room handicapped accessible. Floors and lighting have been upgraded; the room has been painted; and high-energy-efficient windows were installed when other windows were replaced in the rest of the Police Department building.

The room, which is approximately 5,000-square-feet, can be used by community groups.

Some of the hall renovation was funded by state bond bills, including a $100,000 bond bill approved by General Assembly members this year.
