Document Description
The William F. James Boys Ranch is an existing minimum security juvenile detention facility original built to hold up to 96 boys between 15½ to 18 years of age. The facility currently houses only 60 juveniles due to previous change in the overall treatment program which required more dorm floor space per individual. The proposed project is to install temporary residential and shower modular buildings, relocate a classroom trailer from the adjacent Harold Holden Ranch, install new paved walkways, and install a fire access road to increase capacity from 60 to 84 juveniles at the facility in Morgan Hill, California.
