Cuyahoga County may be getting a new Justice Center in Cleveland, and if they do, some of those affected want input.
In a letter sent earlier in March to Cuyahoga County Executive Armond Budish, five local judges said they are "concerned" about the county's consideration of potentially constructing a new Justice Center.
"It should first be noted that the Court of Appeals, Probate Court, and Domestic Relations Court that have called the Old Courthouse home for over 100 years, do not want to be relocated. Yet, they have not been asked whether the construction of a new facility is in the best interest of the judiciary and the population they serve," the judges wrote.
The officials also added that neither the county nor their design consultant have approached the courts for their thoughts. The judges also point out they find several advantages of remaining in the same downtown location.
