SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - Residents of a Savannah apartment complex are being told they must leave to make way for a new police precinct.

Plans call for their buildings to be demolished so the station can be built.

The Savannah Morning News reports (https://bit.ly/YRUm6s ) that residents of the Meldrim Row apartments were given notice that their monthly rental agreements will end Oct. 31.

The city is buying property near Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and 34th street for construction of the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department’s new central precinct.

A company involved in the Meldrim Row apartment complex is giving tenants the option of moving into other apartments nearby. Robert James, the firm’s managing partner, said about 12 tenants so far have notified management that they would like to do so.
