Fayette County jail project clears hurdle

Thursday, July 10, 2014, 8:48 p.m.
 

Fayette County's planning commission on Thursday gave conditional final approval to a land development plan for a new jail, according to Sara Rosiek, director of planning, zoning and community development.

The $32 million Justice and Rehabilitation Center is to be built on an 18-acre parcel in Dunbar and North Union townships.

The approval granted on Thursday is conditional on utility verification, a stormwater compliance letter from Dunbar Township, construction plans, addition of a temporary cul-de-sac to the recorded site plan and acquisition of a street name from Fayette 911, Rosiek said.

The county is in the process of purchasing 61 acres for the project for $1.25 million from Fay-Penn Economic Development Council.
