Last week, the City Council approved a proposal to build a new Police Headquarters near City Hall at the corner of First and Spring. The agreement ends a long debate over the future of the department's location. It also puts a stop to widespread speculation that a new HQ might be placed in the middle of Little Tokyo, irrevocably changing the neighborhood's urban dynamics.The approved proposal also cancels out plans to place a block-long park at this central corner of the city's downtown hub. According to a spokesperson for Councilmember Jan Perry, a small parcel will be left aside for a park to be placed beside the new 500,000 square foot complex. LAist is sure that future patrons of this park will be extremely well-behaved.
