Commissioners break ground on Clark County 9-1-1 Communications Center

The Board of Clark County Communications broke ground on a new 9-1-1 Communications Center on Wednesday, June 24 in Springfield.

“We’re excited to get this project underway,” said Commissioner Rick Lohnes. “The new facility will greatly enhance our emergency services capabilities, resulting in much improved responses throughout all of Clark County.”

The $5M state-of-the-art, 7,000-square-foot facility will be utilized as a dispatch center, office and training facility managed by the Clark County Sheriff’s Office.

Springfield-based McCall Sharp Architecture designed an addition to a county building that will house the Clark County Sheriff Office’s 9-1-1 communications center. Arcanum-based Brumbaugh Construction is currently constructing the building.

In 2018, Clark County Common Pleas Clerk of Courts Melissa Tuttle returned $1 million in excess funding to the Board of Clark County Commissioners to help fund the 9-1-1 dispatch center project.

The dispatch center is expected to open in early 2021.
