Franklin County Corrections Center

The new Franklin County Corrections Center will incorporate the latest jail design philosophies and be built to utilize the Direct Supervision model of inmate supervision.  The commissioners have also tasked the project team with achieving LEED-Silver certification for the new facility.

The building will encompass about 430,000 square feet of space, and the construction site is approximately 24 acres.  The county will fund construction of the jail via proceeds of a quarter-cent sales tax enacted in 2013, which will also fund construction of a new morgue, or Forensic Science Center, on the south side of Franklin County, as well as some economic development, workforce training, and environmental sustainability loans.
