Judicial/jail complex gets green light

-A A +A
By Carol A. Clark

This time next year, if all goes as planned, the community will dedicate a new, security-compliant, energy-efficient (LEED Silver certified) Judicial/Police/Jail (JPJ) complex at the corner of Trinity and Oppenheimer drives.

The Planning and Zoning Commission unanimously approved the site plan portion of the long-awaited project during its meeting at the Community Building Wednesday evening. Chair David Izraelevitz was absent.

While Assistant County Attorney Charles Rennick said he was satisfied that the site plan presented by County staff Wednesday meets code, he also advised commissioners that the plan may need further review depending on where the new Municipal Building is ultimately constructed.

Public Works Department Director Kyle Zimmerman presented the site plan with assistance from Community Development Director Rick Bohn, Project Manager Victor Martinez and Project Architect John Rupley. Police Chief Wayne Torpy also answered questions from commissioners.

This morning, Torpy expressed delight that commissioners approved the site plan.

“I’m happy to get this step of the new JPJ complex completed,” he said. “We’re up against a tight time line to accommodate the needs of the District, Municipal and Magistrate courts.”
