The county courthouse was built in 1939 and has needed major repairs for several years. This project will repair and renovate the aging facilities and include:

  • Major security upgrades
  • Adequate parking
  • Improved accessibility
  • Space for public waiting, staff work areas, required client areas, and records storage
  • Shared operations for support services
  • Improved operations and maintenance


  1. The new complex will provide secure and accessible space for the courts and other government offices for now and into the future.
  2.  The County envisions the new complex to be a destination including spaces for community meetings, outdoor greenspace, and an overall pedestrian-friendly area.
  3. It will attract new and unique amenities and events.
  4. The County is focused on ensuring opportunities for local and diverse businesses in this pinnacle project.

How It All Began

Recommendations Report
In 2022, Jericho Design Group led the development of a Master Plan Recommendation Report in collaboration with the Judicial and Administrative Task Force. They reviewed studies of comparable facilities, updated needs assessments from all County departments and Court offices, and designed layout options with cost estimates for consideration by the task force in a report to the BOC in January 2023.
