Miami County Detention Center

Paola, KS

PROJECT PRIORITIES  Replacement of the outdated and overcrowded County jail, preferably in close proximity to the existing historic Courthouse. Resolve the need for increased parking.

SOLUTION  GGA assisted county officials in locating the project across the street from the County Courthouse, connected by an underground tunnel. Additional downtown properties were assembled to resolve the long-standing parking shortage around the County Government complex.

The project’s exterior takes visual cues from the County’s historic Courthouse, with matching materials, arched windows and entry tower. GGA assisted the County in developing two important memorials around the new project – one for Fallen Officers, the other for 9-11-01 First Responders.
