Document Description
The AOC will construct and operate a new courthouse for the Superior Court. The facility will include as much as approximately 750,000 square feet for 71 courtrooms and other improved facilities. Following construction of the new courthouse, the AOC will demolish the existing County Courthouse and Old Jail. The project will: (1) enhance the security and efficiency of judicial operations; (2) improve public access; (3) provide consolidate space for the Superior Court's staff and operations; (4) preserve or improve the operational efficiency of the Superior Court, the District Attorney, and San Diego Sheriff by linking the County's Central Jail and possibly the Hall of Justice with the new courthouse; and (5) remove existing facilities that lack adequate seismic safety, security, and public access and contain potential health hazards.
