Re-Construction and Demolition of 1969 Herbert Hughes Correction Center
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
Project's purpose is to apply for a Grant under Senate Bill 863, to utilize state funding to replace a very antiquated building, Herbert Hughes Correction Center (HHCC) that was constructed in 1969 which no longer meets the needs of the facility or prison population. If awarded, the plan includes the construction of a new facility and demolition of the existing HHCC with the new facility including a new cook/chill kitchen area, programming space and replacement bunks. The new facilities will significantly reduce operational time by approx. 4 days per week and the new kitchen would be designed to provide food service to other county entities where food preparation is necessary. The existing kitchen (circa 1969) produces approx. 671,000 meals per year.
