Nathan Blackwell reports in MLTNews.com that the state Department of Corrections (DOC) has dropped plans to locate a work release center in Mountlake Terrace.

The site that was under consideration was previously a dental lab at the end of a dead end street behind the Ranch 99 shopping center on 224th SW just off SR 99.

The building is located on a stream in the middle of tall trees. The entrance to the building is over a small bridge.

After evaluation, including feedback from the local community, "...the site cannot be improved to the extent necessary to result in a DOC work-release,” said Mark Kucza, who is a senior administrator with the DOC and project lead for its work-release expansion project.

In fact, the Department of Corrections was unable to find any suitable location in Snohomish county.
