Orange County Justice Facility Expansion

The Orange County Justice Facility will see a significant expansion and modernization over the next two years, while honoring the important historical heritage of Hillsborough.  Limited renovations will occur inside the existing Courthouse, but a large addition will allow much needed expansion of the County Judicial functions.  Both the Clerk of Courts office and the Orange County Sheriff's Deparment will relocate to the new facility.
