Lowndes County begins new judicial complex

December 21, 2006

Lowndes County - Lowndes County approves construction of a 19 million dollar judicial complex.

The new complex will feature more courtroom space, better security for judges, and more office space for court employees.

The complex will be located in the heart of downtown Valdosta where the District Attorney is currently housed.

Commissioners say the complex will be a good fit with the expanding downtown area.  "We hope that the judicial court building will add to our downtown economy, may be bringing in more businesses, focus the spending dollars and all those things downtown," says Paige Dukes, Public Information Officer with the county.

They expect the judicial complex to be completed in two years.

They will still use the main courtroom in the current courthouse.
