On September 13, 2011 Sumter County broke ground on a new Judicial Center at the corner of Harvin and Calhoun, across from the Sumter County Library.
The 80,000-square-foot, $20 million facility is made possible thanks to funding through Penny for Progress sales tax. The facility will be the new home of nearly all judicial offices and proceedings in Sumter County. It's scheduled to open in 2013.
Construction on the project is prceeding at a rapid pace, with most of the foundation stucture in place, and the floors in. The building is planned to be completed by the end of 2012, with inspections and move in occuring in early to mid 2013. At this time the project is on pace to be completed by the planned dates.
