Document Description
The San Bernardino County Real Estate Services Department is proposing a new 11,102 sf Crisis Stabilization Unit Facility Project, located within the unincorporated area of the city of Fontana, San Bernardino County, CA. The project site consists of five parcels, totaling approximately 2.5 acres, located at 14677 Merrill Ave, Fontana, CA 92335. Specifically, the project site is located south of Merrill Ave and west of Redwood Ave. The purpose of the proposed project is to expand access to mental health services within the West Valley region of the county through the construction and operation of a CSU facility providing voluntary crisis intervention services to adult patients living in the local community. The proposed project would be a psychiatric urgent care center with a homelike environment where individuals in crisis can be assess for stabilization services, medication evaluation and management, or hospitalization if necessary. Consumers would have a max stay of 23 hours. The facility would be open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Each of five stabilization rooms would accommodate up to four individuals. Four of the five stabilization rooms would be designated for the adult population and one stabilization room solely designated for the adolescent populations to ensure populations would be separate at all times. The facility would be built in a residential architecture style in order to blend with the existing residential area.
