Kingman Land Purchased for Private Prison Site

Updated:
(Kingman, Arizona-AP) -- An Edmond-based private prison company
is expanding to Arizona.

Dominion Correctional Properties of Edmond has purchased about
160 acres along Interstate 40 for a potential medium-security
prison.

Dominion builds prisons and leases them to other companies that
specialize in the operation of private prisons. The company owns
prisons in McCloud, Oklahoma, Olney Springs, Colorado and Stanley,
Wisconsin.

Jim Hunter is Dominion's executive vice president. Hunter says
construction could begin as early as October and the private prison
could open in the spring of 2001.

Hunter says Dominion still needs to meet the requirements of the
Arizona Department of Environmental Quality and to secure financing
before work can begin.
