CAPITAL FACILITIES STEERING COMMITTEE

Mike Byrne, Chair - Capital Facilities Steering Committee, introduced Len Williams who will present the updated recommendations from the Capital Facilities Steering Committee and the Criminal Justice Working Team (CJWT) regarding the current jail remodeling project, the ITT Rayonier site purchase and any subsequent Facilities Plan modifications.

Len Williams, architect, briefly reviewed the Capital Facilities Master Plan as it was originally presented one year ago. The proposal was for a five-phase plan at a cost of approximately 31.6 million dollars. He stated they have completed a preliminary study of the ITT Rayonier site. There are several buildings on the site and it is almost 13 acres in size. They found the main lab building is primarily concrete reinforced construction, which is needed for justice facilities; there is a lot of office space which would be needed to house the administration for the justice center; and there appears to be enough property for parking and the functions that would be needed to house a long-term justice facility.

Mr. Williams recommended the County move forward with a more in-depth study for a justice center at this site. Revisions would have to be made to the Capital Facilities Master Plan. He has met with the City of Shelton and they are supportive.

He stated they have reports from ITT Rayonier of extensive testing that shows there are no environmental concerns on the site.

Harris Haertel, Probation Services, Co-Chair of CJWT, presented the recommendations regarding the Mason County Capital Facilities Master Plan. 1). The CJWT recommends continuation and completion of the current jail project which is designed to meet short-term needs for increased bed space, a medical isolation room and space for staff training. 2. The proposed ITT Rayonier site has potential to house the criminal justice functions outlined in phase 4 of the Facilities Master Plan. The CJWT recommends this possibility be fully explored in a feasibility study. 3. Based on the feasibility study of the ITT Rayonier site, modifications to the campus facilities plan need to be considered.

He pointed out there is no juvenile court courtroom at this time, they move to what space is available. He noted several other programs that also have no space and hopefully the ITT site would allow for space for these programs. The goal is to have programs that reduce recidivism.

Cmmr. Bolender explained the CJWT has a broad range of representation including the criminal justice elements within Mason County, state agencies and other community groups.

Sheriff Whybark expressed support of the ITT Rayonier study as well as the renovation of the existing jail.

Mike Rutter, Facilities Manager, explained the ITT site might also house the Coroner which would allow for better service from that office and other county offices.

The Board thanked the Criminal Justice Working Team and the Capital Facilities Steering Committee.
