Commerce No Longer Option for New Probation Facility

By EGP News

 Los Angeles County Supervisor Gloria Molina has removed Commerce from consideration as a site for a new probation facility for felons to be released under AB 109, the Public Safety Realignment Act. 

Last week, this newspaper reported that the City of Commerce had recently been proposed for the site at is 2266 Davie Avenue. In a written statement yesterday, Molina said Commerce is not a good fit.

“After further discussions with both my staff and the City of Commerce, I’ve decided we need to select a new site. Unfortunately, the Los Angeles County Probation Department did not properly inform Commerce residents about the proposed project – and my office had to step in to fix the situation. The county needs to partner with local officials to choose a location that is satisfactory to everyone. That didn’t happen here – and that’s unacceptable,” Molina said.

The supervisor’s office notified the City of Commerce on Tuesday, and the public was informed about the decision during Tuesday’s council meeting.
