First came talk, then came planning — followed by a steering committee’s work, voter approval for funding, and about a year of construction. Tuesday, it all came together: the new Montrose Police Department Public Safety Complex opened to the public.

“This facility will be a home for public safety in our city for many years to come and we’re proud to be its first occupants,” Chief Blaine Hall said during the grand opening ceremony that brought the governor and many other state and local dignitaries to the brand-new, $18 million complex.
