14A Judicial District Court Grand Opening
A ribbon cutting ceremony is scheduled for Friday, July 16th at 1:00 pm, with morning tours available. This new court facility opens for business on Monday July 19th.
The Honorable Kirk W. Tabbey, Chief Judge of the 14A District Court; the Honorable Richard E. Conlin, Chief Judge Pro Tempore of the 14A District Court; and the Honorable J. Cedric Simpson, Judge of the 14A District Court, have scheduled a ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday, July 16th, 2010 at 1:00 p.m. to celebrate the opening of the new 14A District Court facility in Pittsfield Township featuring keynote speaker Justice Robert P. Young, Jr. of the Michigan Supreme Court. Staff will be on-site hosting tours from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on the day of the ribbon cutting with the ceremony scheduled to begin at 1:00 p.m.
When asked to share his thoughts, Chief Judge Kirk W. Tabbey said, "With our new 14A-1 court facility offering three courtrooms to add to our other four regional courtrooms, all of us at the court intend to provide faster, more convenient, and efficient service to the public. This site offers a safe and secure environment to the staff and public and will be fundamentally changing the way we provide service countywide."
Washtenaw County is excited by the completion of this project and the opportunities it presents for enhanced services to the community. This 41,000 square foot courthouse is located in the north central area of Washtenaw County within the Service Center Campus at 4133 Washtenaw Ave. The new court location opens for business on Monday, July 19th and will be open Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
In addition to the courtrooms and administration offices, there is a dedicated space for the Prosecutor, Public Defender, private attorneys and other allied agencies. This facility will serve all of Washtenaw County, but in particular the Townships of Ann Arbor, Augusta, Pittsfield, Salem, Superior and the Village of Barton Hills. The other 14A District Court facilities are located in Chelsea, Ypsilanti and Saline.
