Document Description
The proposed project consists of the construction of a 50-bed mental health facility at California Men's Colony (CMC) in San Luis Obispo, CA. The proposed facility would be a Mental Health Crisis Beds (MHCB) facility to be licensed as a Correctional Treatment Center (CTC) for short-term inpatient care for inmates in mental health crisis. The 2 story building would feature ~45,000 sf of space for housing, treatment, and support and administrative services. Infrastructure improvements associated with the project would include installing additional recreation yards, establishing corrections to existing utilities, and extending the existing secure perimeter to include the new facility. In addition, existing staff parking lots would be enlarged.
