New Downtown Space Available For Courthouse


March 8, 2018

Well! It seems a golden opportunity has suddenly been dropped at the feet of our county administration. Land is now for sale right behind the courthouse, which should be adequate for expanded court functions, rather than building a new courthouse outside Brevard. Envision a multi-story building with a couple floors of parking under offices, courtrooms, etc. Access to the existing courthouse could be by tunnel or enclosed walkway above East Probart Street or both. Surely this would be a money saver as well as an enhancement to the downtown.

It appears that the current plan to build a new courthouse near the jail is excessively costly. Moving there would leave a void in the center of town and a detriment to downtown businesses. Can we all rethink this?
