Project Info

West County Detention Facility Re-Entry and Treatment Expansion
The proposed project entails the development of approximately 2.3 acres within the existing West County Detention Facility (WCDF) for a high-security detention facility with supporting reentry program facilities, and a mental health treatment facility. The new facility would provide high security housing, and educational and in essentially no increase of California Department of Corrections rated beds in Contra Costa County. The 240 cells at the Martinez Detention Facility (MDF) that do not meet security and safety requirements would be repurposed for short-term housing of inmates for purposes of in-processing and release. The MDF would continue to be the booking facility for law enforcement agencies in the central and eastern areas of the County. The project consists of construction of a new 150,000 sf building containing approximately 240 double occupancy cells (480 beds), a mental health treatment facility, and educational and vocational program facilities along with facilities to support outpatient medical services, recreational activities, and minor administrative functions of the existing WCDF. In addition, a 1,000 sf, single story, equipment or generator building would be located adjacent to the main building. Intake, release, inpatient health care, central library services, food service, laundry, commissary, and maintenance/warehouse storage will continue to be provided in existing buildings and using existing infrastructure on the WCDF site. In order to proceed with the proposed project, the applicant must obtain approval from the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors, State Department of Corrections, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District, the SWRCB will require a Construction General Permit for management of storm water during construction activities and the San Francisco RWQCB will require a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination (NPDES) storm water permit. The Draft EIR identifies potentially significant environmental impacts in the following areas: Air Quality, Cultural Resources, and Public Services and Utilities. Potentially significant impacts will be mitigated to less-than-significant levels.
