Smith County Approves New Courthouse
On November 8, 2022 voters went to the polls to decide the fate of a new courthouse in Smith County. The proposed plan will demolish the existing courthouse that has been in use since 1955. With the demolition this will expand the Downtown Tyler square area with more green space for downtown events. The current facility was built to originally house only 2 trial courts. Currently Smith County has 7 trial courts and the area is still growing. The new plan will also add a parking garage that is a great need to service the courthouse which currently only has limited on street parking. You can get more information on the comprehensive plan and details in the video above.
