New Courthouse Project History

Creation of Task Force Advisory Committee


The Courthouse Task Force Advisory Committee was approved by the Broward County Board of County Commissioners in December 2008. In January 2009, then Broward County Mayor Stacy Ritter named the members of the Courthouse Task Force Advisory Committee. The Task Force was charged with developing a plan to either refurbish the existing courthouse or build a new one.

The Courthouse Task Force Advisory Committee consisted of stakeholders such as the County Commission, the Judiciary, the State Attorney’s Office, the Public Defender’s Office, the Clerk of the Courts Office, Court Administration, elected municipal officials, the local bar and the business community.
