Placer County Government Center Master Plan Update

Placer County Government Center Rendering

The Placer County Government Center Master Plan envisions a freshly vibrant campus experience in North Auburn. The campus redevelopment has been part of an evolving effort that began more than 25 years ago.

Since the early 90s, Placer County has been working to redevelop the former DeWitt Army Hospital campus into a modern government campus intended to serve county residents for years to come. The 200-acre complex was originally a World War II-era U.S. Army hospital that was later converted to a psychiatric hospital and in 1972 was deeded to Placer County for use as a government center.

  1. 1993 Master Plan
  2. 2015 Master Plan Update

The first master plan was created in 1993 to help guide redevelopment over the next 20 years. Using this plan as a roadmap, the county built several modern facilities such as: Auburn Justice Center, the Finance Administration Building and the Community Development Resource Center facility. The Animal Services Center was also constructed under this master plan. Construction of these new modern facilities required the county to demolish a series of old barracks that were part of the original World War II hospital that was built in the 40s. Then in 2015, the county began an effort to update the plan one more time with the goal of envisioning the next 20 years.
