Northern Branch Jail Project

Summary Description

The County of Santa Barbara Northern Branch Jail Project is located near the city of Santa Maria, California. The project scope is for a 376 bed jail facility, of which 32 beds are for medical and mental health beds in a specialized housing unit. The facility is being constructed on a portion of the 50 acre property previously acquired by the County, located at Black and Betteravia Roads. The project is funded primarily by a Conditional Award of $80 million from the California Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC). The County has a 10% match requirement. The Agreement Documents between the County and State for the conditional award were approved by the County Board of Supervisors on January 15, 2013, and by the California State Public Works Board (SPWB) on February 11, 2013.
