Overland Park committee OKs raising price tag for ‘heavy remodel’ of Sanders Justice Center

An increase in construction costs during the pandemic have contributed to the rising price tag for a major renovation of the Sanders Justice Center in south Overland Park.

At this week’s meeting, the Overland Park City Council’s Public Safety committee approved a change order that gives more funding to improvements to the Sanders Justice Center and the Myron Scafe Building.

The improvements include remodeling the locker rooms and adding a new police vehicle storage building, which will serve as a temporary fitness facility at first.
