Document Description
Siskiyou County proposes to construct a new 40-bed Juvenile Hall to replace the existing 24-bed juvenile hall in Yreka, California. The proposed facility would be constructed on the same site as the existing facility. The new juvenile hall would consist of an approximately 25,000 square foot facility immediately adjacent to the existing hall on about 3.4 acres of land. The conceptual plans for the facility include two 20-bed housing units with associated recreation and academic rooms. The facility plans also include administrative offices, kitchen and laundry facilities, an institutional and maintenance room, medical room, intake and processing area, two parking areas, a perimeter road, loading area, and a recreational yard. The recreational yard would include a perimeter fence and lighting. The facility would be designated to allow for the addition of new housing units if needed in the future. The new juvenile hall would provide Siskiyou County with a facility that complies with existing design standards for detention and processing of detainees and provides sufficient capacity for existing and future needs. The facility would remedy the substandard conditions present at the existing hall with respect to detainee and correction staff safety, as well as improve the living conditions for the detainees.
