Rehabilitation Modular Trailer Project
NOE - Notice of Exemption
In order to increase the number of inmates served in rehabilitative programs, CDCR has developed a rehabilitation program at 13 prisons including LAC. This project involves the installation of a new 84x81 foot modular trailer to accommodate the increase in number of inmates that will be receiving rehabilitative programming. To make space for this new trailer, an existing double wide trailer will be relocated to another area within the secure perimeter. Utilities (water, gas, electrical, sewer and phone) and LAN connectivity are accessible in the area for both trailers. The project includes minor trenching to install the necessary water, sewer, electrical and communication ducting/conduits. The relocated trailer will be used by LAC staff for classroom/program space. The project is in a developed and disturbed area of the prison involving only minor trenching for utilities.
The project is needed so that CDCR can increase the number of inmates being served by rehabilitative programs prior to their release from prison.
The project consist of minor repair, replacement, and maintenance to existing facilities that involve no expansion of use. These are one of a class of projects that the Secretary for Resources has found do not have a significant effect on the environment, and therefore is declared to be categorically exempt from the requirement for preparing an environmental document.
