Clallam Bay Double Celling

On June 12, 1991, Clallam Bay Corrections Center (CBCC) superintendent Neal Brown announced that the 21 million dollar expansion of CBCC was on schedule (but there is no money for teachers and schools in Washington). The expansion plans include renovation of food service and dining facilities, expansion of the sewage treatment plant, and construction of a warehouse, a gymnasium and 400-bed medium security cell block. The gym and warehouse are supposed to be finished in February, 1992; the expanding dining and food service areas in July/August 1992; and the new cell block in October/November 1992.

Double bunks have been installed in every cell in the existing units at CBCC and will be double celled as needed. For now however, CBCC's population won't go past around 570 prisoners until the sewage treatment plant is expanded. Once that is done, around October 1, 1991, the population will be increased by up to 400 more prisoners.

As of July 1, 1991, CBCC will be designated a close custody facility making CBCC and the penitentiary at Walla Walla the only close custody prisons in the state.

Once the additional cellblocks and such are built and operational the number of DOC employees on the payroll will go from the current level of 300 to about 415.
