Changes Approved For New Delta County Jail Fences

The City of Escanaba Planning Commission held a Special Planning Commission meeting on August 15, 2017.

During the meeting it was voted unanimously to reduce the perimeter fencing height for the new Delta County Correctional Facility from 12 feet to 8 feet and to also eliminate the protective measure fencing (barbed wire top) and screening to a portion of the fence. This fence change was requested due to cost overruns of the construction project

The public is cordially invited to provide comments or concerns concerning this vote by submitting them in writing to the City of Escanaba, Community Development Department, P.O. Box 948, 410 Ludington Street, Escanaba, MI 49829 prior to August 29th, 2017.
