The 2001-03 biennial capital budget directs JLARC to study the current value, alternative uses, and potential revenue of alternative uses, for the state's five residential habilitation centers (RHCs) operated by the Division of Developmental Disabilities within the Department of Social and Health Services.  JLARC engaged two real estate appraisal firms to work with Committee staff on this project.  This study determines the current value the five RHCs have to the state in their present operations as institutions for the developmentally disabled and identifies some potential alternative uses for, and revenues generated by, the five facilities if they were no longer used as RHCs.  The report recommends that: 1) the Department of General Administration develop options for disposing of various excess property identified at three of the RHCs; and 2) the Department of Social and Health Services synthesize this and other RHC-related studies in a report to the Legislature about the future needs of the DDD institutional population.
