Request for Ideas for Future Uses of the Yolo County Courthouse

Yolo County has issued a Request for Ideas in an effort to solicit creative input regarding the future use of the Yolo County Courthouse.  When the Yolo Superior Court completes the construction of their new facility in 2015, the existing building and property will revert to the county for its use upon the court’s departure.  The Board of Supervisors recognizes this as an opportunity to consider alternative and innovative approaches to the reuse of the facility. 

The courthouse comprises roughly 50,000 square feet and sits on 2.75 acres in the city of Woodland.  It is listed in the national register of historic places.  Yolo County's objective is to consider this property in its suburban context as a fully utilized and valued asset that invites innovative design.  Potential use could involve a lease of the property from the county.  Any future use would need to take into account historic preservation restrictions and environmental conditions.

“With the amount of vacant space currently owned by the county, there exists the potential for underutilization of this facility,” said Mindi Nunes, deputy county administrator.  “We intend to use the ideas received from citizens, developers and others for planning purposes to make strategic decisions regarding future use of this property.”

Tours of the facility can be arranged by calling (530) 666-8426.  Ideas from citizens and other interested parties can be submitted via e-mail (mindi.nunes@yolocounty.org) or letter (to the address below) by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, November 25:

Office of the Yolo County Administrator
Attn: Mindi Nunes
625 Court Street, Suite 202
