The Maple Lane project is situated on the former grounds of the Maple Lane youth detention center and is designed so that the Department of Corrections may efficiently address inmates’ mental health, substance abuse treatment, and cognitive behavioral change needs. Before its closure in 2011 by the State Legislature, the Maple Lane detention center employed approximately 260 people and housed approximately 200 juvenile offenders. The Department of Corrections was granted the use of the grounds by the State Legislature with the direction to renovate existing structures to house 128 female minimum custody individuals. The Department is currently working to determine an approach and next steps toward achieving the Legislature’s directive.
