The Orion Center, (Project No. 3572), will centralize the city’s maintenance and operations functions into a single location on Orion Way, on a site between the Safety Center and Fleet Maintenance building. Co-location results in increased efficiency of operations, reduced environmental impacts to the community and improved cross-training and collaboration. The project also creates an opportunity to repurpose three different city properties: the Public Works General Services Division located at 405 Oak Street; Carlsbad Municipal Water District, located at 5950 El Camino Real and the Parks Maintenance yard located at 1166 Carlsbad Village Drive.
The project is expected to be completed in summer 2021. The total estimated project cost is $47.8 million.
