SPRINGFIELD, OH (Jan. 19, 2024) ─ The offices inside the historic Clark County Courthouse, 101 North Limestone Street, will be relocating to the Bushnell Building next month as a $13 million interior renovation project is expected to begin later this year.
“Our Courthouse belongs to the people and it serves as a very important symbol for the rule of law,” said Clark County Common Pleas Domestic Relations Judge Thomas J. Capper. “Those of us who are fortunate enough to work at the Courthouse very much appreciate the efforts of our County Commissioners and their staff to make this project something that we all can be very proud of for many years to come.”
The move ─ which will include the Clerk of Courts Office, Judges Offices, Probation Department and the Law Library ─ is expected to begin Jan. 29 and continue throughout the month of February. The offices will remain open for business on the third floor of the Bushnell Building, 14 East Main Street, until the project is completed.
The Clerk of Courts Office final day at the Courthouse will be Feb. 1. The Clerk's Office is expected to be operational at the Bushnell Building beginning at 10 a.m. Feb. 2.
The current Courthouse building was originally completed in 1924 after a fire destroyed portions of the former structure. The Courthouse saw several exterior renovations completed in 2018.
The latest renovation at the Courthouse includes modernized electrical wiring, heating and air conditioning, fire suppression, plumbing and a new elevator. The expected completion date is December of 2025.
