The West Hollywood City Council approved an item at the Feb. 7 meeting that will direct city staff to analyze the potential to temporarily or permanently relocate the city’s sheriff’s station. The prospective relocation comes as an effort to expand the Metro Division 7 bus yard and rail station located next door to the sheriff’s station at 8800 Santa Monica Blvd.
The analysis will include possible sites for relocation, costs and financing, development and ownership, minimum square footage requirements and components and amenities that need to be included in a new station.
Councilman John D’Amico voiced opposition to the prospect of relocation.
“I think the sheriff’s station should stay on or near its current location,” D’Amico said. “I don’t support moving the station to any other location in the city. Not one block north, not one block south, not one block east, not one block west. I think that is an appropriate location.”
D’Amico also opposed the proposal regarding its funding.
“It is a county site, a county property, I think the county needs to pay for that,” D’Amico said. “If there is some idea that West Hollywood should be on the hook for a county building that provides county services that the city pays for, I can’t support that and I don’t think my colleagues should either.”
Further discussion on the topic will be held at a future city council meeting following the completion of the city staff report.
