Local Officials Hold Ground Breaking For New District Courts Building

Local Officials broke ground Friday afternoon on the new site of the District Courts Building.

The new building will be located on the southeast corner of 6th Avenue and Pierce Street, across the street from the existing District Courts Building.

The Courts Building will be 5 stories, just over 158,000 square feet and feature courtrooms, jury assembly, county offices, courtroom in-custody holding and records storage.

“We’re excited to begin construction on the new home of Potter County’s District Courts,” said County Judge Nancy Tanner. “The new building has taken years of coordination and planning. We’ve collaborated closely with HOK and Adolfson & Peterson Construction to design and plan construction on a District Courts Building that will stand the test of time, serve our elected officials and constituents, and provide the County with room for future growth.”

The current District Courts Building was constructed in 1985 and the replacement building will help the County save on recent increasing maintenance and repair costs.

The new building is scheduled for completion in late 2022.
