- El Dorado County Placerville Jail Expansion
- The proposed project includes construction of a two-story jail building that would be separate from, but attached to, the existing jail facility. The proposed two-story structure would have a maximum floor area of 25,000 sq. ft. The proposed structure would act as an expansion to the existing facility and would include space for medical and mental health facilities, inmate housing, administrative and staff support facilities, and inmate programs. The proposed mental health facility areas would include medical evaluation rooms and 14 medical beds. The proposed project would not increase the inmate capacity of the jail, but would instead allow for increased program space at the existing jail facility and more appropriate distribution of inmate housing throughout the jail. The County is pursuing a grant from the Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC) as authorized by Senate Bill 844 for the construction of the jail extension.
