The city of Suwanee’s Municipal Court will temporarily move across Town Center Park to City Hall beginning May 1. The move is being made so that renovations and an addition can be added to the building where the court is currently housed at 323 Buford Highway.
According to a press release from the city, the building (which was originally City Hall) is almost 60 years old and the renovations are being made to “significantly improve the court customer experience and create more space for court and police employees.”
The city said the lobby will be expanded to accommodate court session crowds, court clerk workspace will more than double and new space will be constructed for the police department’s Special Enforcement Unit.
Construction is anticipated to begin in late spring or early summer, the city said. A clerk will be stationed at City Hall to handle payments and routine questions. Court sessions will take place at City Hall as well; the day-to-day court functions will begin at the police station on May 6.
Renovations are expected to be completed in early 2020. Questions regarding court during this time should be directed to Court Administrator Mariza Abdeljawad at 678-546-2134 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
