GROUNDBREAKING SET FOR DOÑA ANA COUNTY JUVENILE DETENTION FACILITY

GROUNDBREAKING SET FOR DOÑA ANA COUNTY JUVENILE DETENTION FACILITY

Doña Ana County will host a ground-breaking ceremony Wednesday, March 1, 2000, at 10 a.m. on the site of the new 50-bed Juvenile Detention Facility at 1850 Copper Loop in Las Cruces.
At the ground-breaking, Commission Chairman Carlos Garza will say a few words and then preside over the ground-breaking. Las Cruces Mayor Ruben Smith also is scheduled to make some remarks.
The Juvenile Detention Facility has a construction budget of $3.9 million. Upon completion, it will house up to 50 juveniles in a building completely separate from the adult detention center. Meals will be coordinated through the adult facility, thereby creating construction savings for the county.
The Juvenile Detention Facility will be located on the southwest corner of the detention center complex property. Guests will be encouraged to park in either the visitor or staff parking lot on the north side of the building and then walk to the ceremony site.

Refreshments will be served.
