Bond election slated for May for Travis County civil courthouse

By Andra Lim - American-Statesman Staff

But whatever the amount, it would pay for a downtown civil courthouse that, according to the latest plans, would stand 14 stories high, climbing about 270 feet, and contain 520,000 square feet of space. Underground would be a four-story garage with 548 parking spaces.

At recent meetings, including Tuesday’s, the Commissioners Court has heard plans from consultants for how much space the courthouse will contain and what that space will be used for — key factors in drilling down the cost of the building.

Those plans say the courthouse, slated to be complete in 2018, would include offices for 35 judges and 33 courtrooms, offices for nine other county departments and space for nonprofit agencies and a law library.

Austin has been seeking more creative solutions to Austin's growing pains, and an unlikely duo on City Council may be taking that directive seriously.

On Tuesday afternoon, Council Member Don Zimmerman said Council Member Ora Houston has joined him in lobbying of Travis County Commissioners Court to build its new county courthouse in East Austin instead of downtown.
