More info on new courthouse expected by mid-July

What’s the timeline for the new courthouse? Where will it be located?

Plumas News reached out to the Judicial Council of California for an update on its plans for the new courthouse to be located in Quincy.

Patrick Morrison, a senior facilities analyst for the state Judicial Council, said that consultants are still analyzing the three top locations: Dame Shirley Plaza, the Feather Publishing location on Lawrence Street and the Stone House in East Quincy.

He hopes to be able to provide a loose timeline for the process the second week in July. Plumas News will post more information as it becomes available.

  • please not Dame Shirley Plaza

  • First I d like to know thought destroying the only park in downtown to build a court building would be a good idea ? Second why arent the residents of this town and county being given a say in the matter but some state bureaucrat not even from here is ?? If they tear out Dame Shirley it would be an enormous loss to the community, an alternative needs to be chosen

    • Putting a courthouse in the only park in downtown when there are viable alternatives is just plain stupid, full stop.

  • Thank you for reaching out to the Judicial Council. In addition to an update on timelines, I would like to know: 1) When will public input be considered in the site selection process?; 2) When will relevant information, such as site assessments and criteria for site selection, be made available to provide transparency and informed engagement by the public?; and 3) How will the Site Selection and Acquisition Policy for Judicial Branch Facilities (Administrative Office of the Courts 2009) that “siting a new courthouse should strive to meet historical and local preferences” (§1.1.4) be addressed prior to recommending a preferred and alternate site to the Judicial Council?
