New Courthouse Agreement Paused
I have learned recently from the Office of Court Construction and Management that the Sacramento acquisition phase funds for building a new Sacramento Criminal Courthouse have been re-appropriated but funding is still dependent on the final State budget. There has also been an agreement on price for the preferred site and OCCM real estate staff are now working on the purchase and sale agreement; however, negotiations have been paused. I have a hunch that we won’t see any movement on this project till early next year after the elections and budget issues have been resolved. No renderings of the proposed courthouse have been released.
