Document Description
The Government Center project will consist of three separate main buildings, comprising a total of 306,000 square feet at buildout. These structures include a new Administration Building and the interior renovation of the North Courts Wing and the East/West Wings. Guided by the 2001 Facilities Master Plan, the project will require a series of phased efforts to provide new and expanded facilities at the existing Courthouse Complex. These projects include: - Construction of a new 3-story building on the site to accommodate county administrative functions; - A phased renovation of the 1968 North Wing of the Courthouse to be occupied by the county trial courts; and - A phased renovation of the 1937 East and West Wings of the Courthouse to be occupied by courts-related county functions. The redeveloped Government Center will house five functional groups: Administrative Leadership, Finance, Land Use, State Trial Courts and County Courts-Related Departments. The existing location in downtown Salinas makes use of considerable owned assets and infrastructure and would strengthen the historic presence of the County government as an anchor in the City. The complex will serve as the headquarters for the County, and will include technology supported workspaces and meeting rooms.
