Image is Everything:

We continue to look to our peer groups to benefit from their development and operational experiences. We have conducted various courthouse tours of newly constructed and renovated courthouses. These are some of the noteworthy courthouses that have provided lessons learned as we continue with our initial planning efforts.

The image and design of the courthouse should

  • Convey a sense of justice, dignity and reverence to the rule of law.
  • Reflect that they are forums for justice, not only government office spaces.
  • Reflect the separation and equal branch of government.
