The City Council is expected to approve two contracts for this project. For those who forgot, Fremont opened a new police building adjacent to the Hayward Fault in 1996. But it was designed with structural system that proved vulnerable in the 1994 Northridge earthquake.

City officials knew it was a problem during construction, but they decided it made more sense to complete the building as designed and then retrofit it later, which is now what they’re doing.
