Hall of Justice Renovation Project Update

Renovation of the 10-story, 237,225 square foot Hall of Justice building located at 369 S. High Street began in August 2013 and is expected to be substantially complete later this year. As of March, the renovation is 60-percent complete.

Commissioners are utilizing a pay-as-you-grow approach, only building out four of the ten floors at this time. The renovated facility will feature a first floor conference center, the Adult Probation unit will occupy the fourth and fifth floors, while the Law Library will return to the tenth floor.

Eight County Buildings Join Lights Out Columbus Initiative

Every spring and fall, millions of birds migrate through Columbus on their way to or from their breeding grounds. Many birds migrate at night, and lights on tall buildings can lead to collisions with buildings or windows. Lights Out programs provide an opportunity to reduce the number of collision-related kills by reducing lighting.
