    The plans shown in the article are conceptual, not final.

    However, construction on this project is scheduled for July 2014.

    We should see final designs submitted to the design committee soon.

    That's nice. I just wish there would be structured parking instead of a parking lot, but oh well. This should be a nice facility.

    Now if we could only do something about the county courthouse and building.

    $19 million building permit application today for this project.

    They still have to submit detailed plans for design review, but this should be under construction soon.

    I'm sure they want to finish it around the same time as the new Police HQ so they can demo the building they currently share.

    Good to see this project moving along, the west side of downtown will be really nice in a few years. Seems like this side of town has more momentum then the C2S area.

    I actually just spoke to someone at the City about this and he said it will go to bid in August or September then start construction around November.

    Will the city have to wait until this is done to tear down the building to the south?

    The bids for this project came in at $4 million over budget so they will have to re-bid and see if they can get the cost down before starting.

  12. Default Re: Municipal Court Building

    So this looks like its going in the parking lot between the communications building (the short one behind the rendering) and the current city court building. There really isn't anywhere else to park while construction takes place, which will be a couple years. Are they planning on tearing down the old HQ building and pave that lot in the meantime?

    The current building isn't nice, but it isn't crap either. Crap is the county building!!!!

    After re-bidding the entire project, looks like things are ready to move forward.

    Application for a construction trailer today.

    I was at City Court Thursday and noticed the lot was closed for parking and that the toll booth had been torn down. The city employees that parked there have also been moved.

    Yea, but this would be a real district meeting the definition of the word, not a made up district used for marketing purposes. From Hudson to Classen there is the Library, county court house, city hall, main st garage, the city's IT building, bicentennial park (which should be renamed Civic Park), the Civic Center, the 2 old police headquarters, the new police headquarters, the 911 operations center, the old and new municipal courthouse, and the county jail.

    When this is done, it is going to be nice. In the interim, coming up for court is a bit of a hassle. Ahhhh, progress.
