County looks at moving jail to Warrenton

Study examines taking over North Coast Youth Correctional Facility

Clatsop County may relocate its jail from Astoria to the North Coast Youth Correctional Facility site in Warrenton.

The county Board of Commissioners voted unanimously Wednesday to authorize a $51,000 study, which will examine how to best relocate the jail if the state closes the youth correctional facility. Gov. Kate Brown’s budget for the next biennium calls for the facility’s closure, part of a larger effort to address a $1.7 billion shortfall.
