Jail Proposal A Blast From The Past

Jail Proposal A Blast From The Past

What goes around comes around:

County officials viewed a new justice center option Wednesday -- a design that involves building a courthouse and jail that wraps around the west side of the existing courthouse.

The site plan presented Wednesday showed the justice center fitting on the one square block where the existing courthouse is located. The new courthouse and jail could be built up from Capitol Street, reaching three stories before it would be at the same height as the first level of the courthouse...

That's the same broad outline of a plan first considered, and defeated, in 1977.
