Document Description
The Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC), the staff agency of the Judicial Council of California, is proposing construction of a new courthouse in Pittsburg. The Courthouse will be on Center Avenue directly south of the existing Courthouse and will face south towards Center Drive. The project site will cover approximately six acres. The proposed new Courthouse will be two stories tall, have approximately 71,000 square-feet of space for seven courtrooms and other Court-related facilities, and will have approximately 200 parking spaces. The City of Pittsburg will provide additional parking spaces for the courthouse. Approximately 60 employees will work at the facility. The new courthouse will improve Contra Costa residents' access to judicial facilities, provide courthouse facilities that meet current building standards for public use; provide facilities to support new judicial services and additional judges; and provide improved security for visitors, judges, and courthouse staff. After completion of the new Courthouse, the AOC will demolish the existing Courthouse.
