Jackson County commissioners started the process of hiring a consultant to help put together a 20-year master plan to deal with space needs, including finding a permanent home for Jackson Superior Court II.
That court has been located in the courthouse annex since it opened Jan. 1, 2008, and operates out of a room used for many county meetings, including those conducted by commissioners.
“We are going to be hiring an architect this year to give us some advice,” commissioners president Jerry Hounshel said Thursday. Other officeholders and elected officials, including the assessor, need additional space for staffing.
