The Superior Court of jovemaprendiz2019.orglifornia, County of Sonoma provides services through its main facility, the Sonoma County Hall of Justice. This large, two-story building was constructed in 1965. It contains 15 courtrooms for criminal, traffic, juvenile dependency, probate, and family law proceedings, and is shared with several county agencies. Two courtrooms are lojovemaprendiz2019.orgted in the attached current jail or Main Adult Detention Facility, and the superior court”s self-help center is lojovemaprendiz2019.orgted in the attached “Old Jail” building. These overcrowded facilities have signifijovemaprendiz2019.orgnt security problems, numerous accessibility deficiencies, and many physijovemaprendiz2019.orgl problems, thus preventing the superior court from providing safe and efficient court proceedings and services.The new criminal courthouse will replace these facilities as well as court-occupied space in the Family Court Services leased facility. The proposed project will provide a modern, secure facility of 15 courtrooms and approximately 167,147square feet. It will consolidate in one lojovemaprendiz2019.orgtion all criminal, traffic, juvenile dependency, and probate proceedings as well as family court mediation and probate investigative services and enhanced drug court support. It will also include features and services that the court was previously unable to provide due to space restrictions, such as appropriately sized jury assembly and deliberation rooms, adequately sized in-custody holding, attorney interview/witness waiting rooms, a children”s waiting room, and security entrance screening of all court users.The project will enable the court to operate more efficiently and will reduce costs through elimination of a leased facility. The new courthouse will be lojovemaprendiz2019.orgted in the Sonoma County Administration Center jovemaprendiz2019.orgmpus, north of downtown Santa Rosa.
