City to break ground on New Orleans Juvenile Justice Center

February 04, 2013


NEW ORLEANS, LA – Tomorrow, Mayor Mitch Landrieu, City Councilmembers, City Officials and Judges, and FEMA will break ground on the New Orleans Juvenile Justice Center at the corner of Encampment Street and Imperial Drive in the St. Bernard Area neighborhood. The new 59,000 square foot facility will serve as the permanent home for the City’s secure detention facility for boys and girls less than 18 years old and will replace the Temporary Youth Study Center at 1100 Milton Street that was opened in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina which destroyed the old facility. The total cost of construction is $32 million, with funding coming from FEMA recovery dollars, insurance, and City bonds. The Mayor will also announce that the City of New Orleans has come into compliance and has met and sustained all of the reforms and changes agreed to by the federal Consent Decree concerning the Temporary Youth Study Center which the City entered into in 2010.
