Overview

Many older courthouses have serious life safety, structural and code-compliance issues requiring comprehensive renovation or closure. Construction of new regional justice centers will enable the Trial Court to close older, outdated facilities. A majority of the state’s courthouses were built before 1960, including 22 courthouses over one hundred years old.

FY 2017 Bond Cap Spending

In conjunction with the Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance, the Trial Court has developed a capital master plan that assesses the system’s needs, and identifies targeted investments to address these deficiencies. Additional bond funds will be required to achieve these goals. The plan recommends a capital investment of $500 million over the next five years.

In recent years, the Trial Court has struggled to compete with other agencies for the limited space available under the annual spending cap. Court improvement projects have been deferred to allow other state capital investment priorities to advance. Full implementation of the new capital plan requires a modest increase in capital spending on court construction in the near future.
