Placeholder Image

The public will have an opportunity to put in their opinion on the new courthouse planned for downtown Modesto at an upcoming public meeting.

The project team for the new courthouse will be providing information on the plans and answering questions at the public outreach meeting planned for April 29.

Attendees also will get an update on the progress made on the project and a chance to provide input to the project team.

The courthouse, planned for a city block bounded by H and G streets and Ninth and 10th Streets, is currently in the first stage of architectural design. The current schedule calls for construction of the new courthouse to begin in June 2018 and completion in 2021.

In February, Stanislaus Superior Court officials released the first in a series of online surveys seeking the public’s input on the new courthouse in downtown Modesto. A summary of preliminary results from online surveys to date will be shared. Court officials anticipate continuing to post a new online survey each month over the next few months, with the goal of gathering input to create a user-friendly building.

Presenters will include staff from the Superior Court of Stanislaus County, the Judicial Council, and the architecture firm: Skidmore Owings and Merrill.

The meeting will be from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. April 29 at the Stanislaus County Board of Supervisors Chambers, 1010 10th Street, Basement Level, in Modesto.
