Reports on the Plan for the Closure

The planning process for the closure of Agnews began in Fiscal Year 2003 – 2004. DDS solicited broad participation from internal and external stakeholders including consumers, family members, area boards, advocates, and community providers to develop a plan that would result in an orderly transition of consumers into alternative services and supports. In October of 2003, the teams completed their recommendations and reports that served as the basis for the plan. After several public meetings in Fiscal Year 2003 – 2004, the Agnews Closure Plan was submitted to the Legislature in January 2005 and approved with the enactment of the Budget Act of 2005.
