Probation Department Building


This project will design and construct a new two-story, 34,000 sf building that will be tailored to meet operational needs, accommodate future departmental growth, provide state of the art technology and infrastructure and improve convenience and access for public clients. The intent is to build a user friendly, accessible, safe, secure, and healthy environment for the Probation staff and the public.

Location/Conceptual Design

The new building  will be sited on a portion of the twenty-one-acre County parcel located north of the Johnson Ave. and Bishop St. intersection in the City of San Luis Obispo.  The site is currently occupied by several existing Health Agency facilities which shall remain occupied during the construction. The new Probation Department building shall be located behind the existing facilities, on an undeveloped portion of the parcel and will take access from Bishop St.
