Council Approves Design For New Police Dept. Headquarters
LINCOLNTON, N.C. - The big news from Thursday’s Lincolnton City Council meeting was the presentation from Pinnacle Architecture of the conceptual design of the new Lincolnton Police Department Headquarters.
Several months ago the City acquired the old Eckerd / Rite Aid drugstore property directly across the street from the current Police headquarters. The plans were and are to move the Police Department to give them more room. Architects Frank Williams and Jeff Elmore explained to the Council that renovating this building would accomplish that purpose and more.
Most of the work would be inside, constructing a lobby for visitors, offices for the department staff, interrogation rooms and more. The major external renovation would be to move the entrance from facing Flint Street to have it facing on Main Street.
Pinnacle Architecture did not give any estimates for the total cost of the renovations since this was simply a conceptual design. Mr. Williams suggested that after delivering detailed drawings in about six weeks, the City Council would be ready to entertain bids to determine the costs.
After some discussion and questions, the Council approved the concept.

The City also:
- Approved a Resolution (R-14-18) amending the City’s List of Approval of Resolution (R-14-18) amending the City’s List of Budgeted Positions as a result of a SAFER Grant received for three (3) Fire fighter positions.
- Approved an application from Pete DeGregory for a Business Incentive Grant for building renovations to accommodate a restaurant at 110 East Water Street. Since the renovation of the current building would exceed $500,000, DeGregrory qualified for the maximum $15,000 grant.
- Presented a Retirement Resolution to Tim Dellinger – Lead Meter Reader recognizing him for twenty-five years of service to the City.
After a short closed session, with nothing to report, The City Council adjourned.
