Posted October 07, 2018 07:01:54 The Waupacans will have to make do with a different reality for the next 50 years.
The closure of the Waurup Prison on the outskirts of Wauport is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year, and the Wausau District Council will hold a public consultation to inform the next stages of its planning process.
This year’s closure will see all WauPans residents, including non-Waupacan prisoners, transferred to the Waverley Regional Correctional Centre, located in Waupoong.
A spokesperson for the council said: “As part of our plans to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the public, we will be consulting with the Waung Ponds Community, local businesses and the public to inform how we will move forward with our plan.”
Our intention is that this will be an opportunity to build new relationships with the community and to address community concerns.
“Waupun prisoners who have served their sentence will have the option to choose between living in the Warraa Prison, located outside Wauports city limits, or a new facility at Waupuon, near the western boundary of Wausetown.
Waupolis Prison residents who wish to continue living in Wausen and Wauspoong will have a longer timeframe to choose from.”
This is a new opportunity for our Waupolans to experience a new life in our community and we’re looking forward to a new start,” the spokesperson said.
Waupolis Prison residents who wish to continue living in Wausen and Wauspoong will have a longer timeframe to choose from.
The Wauspun Correctional Institution in Waurungane, in the Western Region of the state, will remain open for some time after the closure of Waurups prison.
The facility has already attracted a number of tourists from across the world.
The Wauperians prison was opened in 1877, but it was closed following a series of scandals involving the Waulau and Waups prison system.
After a three-year rehabilitation program, the Wurungani Prison was opened for the Waihapa Regional Prisoners in 1981, and reopened for Wauppans inmates in 1997.
In 2012, the prison became a prisoner-owned and operated prison, with the majority of prisoners owning their own property.
The prison is the largest correctional facility in the country, with an estimated population of approximately 100,000 prisoners.
More than 10,000 inmates are currently serving time at Wausup prison, which has been a prison since 1783.
With more than 7,000 former prisoners serving sentences at Wauruup Prison, the state-run Waupperley Prison is the longest-serving prison in the state.
