Iqaluit approves new cop shop
Iqaluit city council approved the development of a new RCMP headquarters during a meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 11.
The two-story building will be located on Federal Road, across from the Government of Nunavut building, and serve as a new headquarters for the “V” Division and as a new Iqaluit detachment. Several lots must first be consolidated before development begins.
Another condition of the development is that Federal Road must be widened by 1.5 metres along the length of the existing lot line.
A timeline for the development could not be obtained before press time.
Council approved granting the development permit unanimously.
