Document Description
The project sponsor proposes to construct a new 80,000 square-foot Superior Court facility that would be up to four stories in the City of Merced. The Merced County Superior Court currently occupies four permanent buildings and three relocatable buildings. Over the past decade, the incremental growth of court-related functions has resulted in a severe space shortage in the existing facilities. The purpose of the proposed project is to construct an approximately 80,000 square-foot building that would house several court-related functions to supplement the existing court facilities to alleviate the existing space shortage and allow for future growth.
