Why build a new judicial center?

Due to inadequate safety conditions, size, and age concerns of the current courthouse facilities, and as set forth in multiple space needs reports performed for ACCGov, the current facility does not meet the needs of Athens-Clarke County nor the required Georgia Courts Security Guidelines. The new judicial center will provide much needed security and operational updates to improve the operations of ACCGov judicial functions.
