Public Encouraged to Attend Vote
The final vote for the East County Courthouse is scheduled Thursday, October 28th. It will be in the boardroom at the Multnomah Building (501 SE Hawthorne) and is on the Board of Commissioners meeting agenda for 10:30am. There will be a brief presentation before public comment, then the final board vote. We are confident about this passing but encourage everyone to show their support, whether that includes attending in person or making public comment at the meeting or through a letter to the Commissioners (contact info below the break).

Ground Preparation Underway
Deconstruction of the existing building (Rockwood Lanes Bowling, Get Map!) has already begun (see photos below) and we anticipate the groundbreaking will be in December (the original plan was January but the project is a little ahead of schedule). According to the timeline, the courthouse will be completed in March of 2012. The design is for two floors and three courtrooms and there will be a final design and timeline available during the presentation on Thursday next week. It will be included in the presentation to the board and accessible through the Weekly Agenda Packet Materials link on the Board Meeting Agenda website beginning next week, October 25th. Once the board votes details will also put it on the Multnomah County East County Courts website.
