Any news on what the city of raleigh has decided to do about their dispatch center. I believe a merger with Cary would make the most sense. It be nice to see one true unified dispatch center for the county as well as EOC

ECC moving to the Westinghouse facility is a done deal. When it’s built, they’ll be moving there. They just have to make do on Hargett until that time. I think the rest of the Westinghouse facility is still up for discussion, though. A police district? EOC? Other city departments?

Oh, and a dispatch merger with Cary? Raleigh will merge with Durham before that happens. :)

The police district is out. The City data center and EOC are in. The County EOC is awaiting a decision by Wake County.

I find it hard to believe groundbreaking will occur around July since the city hasn’t even awarded the bid yet.

RR, why is that so hard to believe? The bid award is the last step prior to start of construction.

@Mike – more positive than negative. Yes, we’ll have to drive “downtown” to meetings, and we’ll no longer be right next to the telephone building, but we’ll be out of the basement with adequate space to work for years to come and our employees will have access to free parking. While the telephone companies will continue to be in play, Next Generation 9-1-1 will rely on more data type circuits that can be routed anywhere. The City will also gain a real EOC, and the County will upgrade theirs if they move.
