Santa Barbara City Council Votes To Move 911 Call Center

Granada Garage office building will be temporary home


The Santa Barbara City Council approved funding to move the  911 call center for safety reasons.

The call center is in the bottom of the Santa Barbara police station which does not meet current seismic standards.

The Granada Garage, about a block away, will become the call center's temporary home.

Nina Johnson,  the assistant to the city administrator, said, "Even though council approved funding to relocate the  911 call center, it is still a top priority for the city to look at a long-term plan to address the seismic concerns of the police building.

In the past voters failed to approve funding for a new police station.

The  $2 million cost of moving the call center will be paid for with redevelopment funds the city fought to keep.
