Was under Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman’s tenure that the then new Las Vegas City Hall opened its doors to residents and visitors alike.
Today, under Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman, Oscar Goodman’s wife, another grand opening, another success story for the city of Las Vegas, is taking place.
Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman, Chief Judge Bert Brown, and other dignitaries, will officially open the new Municipal Courthouse at 10 a.m. on Thursday, April 22, at 100 E. Clark Ave.
In addition, an adjacent street will be named for longtime Las Vegan Irwin Molasky, a developer and philanthropist, whose company is responsible for many buildings and developments in the city, including the new courthouse.
The ceremonies will be held outside the courthouse and social distancing, face-coverings and other pandemic safety precautions will be followed.
From April 23 to May 2, Municipal Court operations will be closed to the public while offices are moved to the new building. The four-story, nearly 140,000-square-foot building is scheduled to open to the public May 3, marking the city’s Municipal Court services move from the Regional Justice Center to the new courthouse.
Again the city of Las Vegas will be on its own by having its own courthouse, as it was years ago, independent from other court facilities.
The courthouse includes chambers and offices for all six municipal court judges.
It also includes space for the city’s Traffic Court, court administration, customer service, classrooms and public space. It will also house the City Attorney’s Office Criminal Division, creating a one-stop-shop for municipal justice needs. The cost of the new courthouse was $56.3 million.
The Molasky Group of Companies is the developer and the general contractor for the project is Martin Harris Construction. The design architect for the project is PGAL LLC.
We would like to express our gratitude to Chief Judge Bert Brown and Judge Cedric Kern for taking the time to give the Las Vegas Tribune an
exclusive tour of the new courthouse building for the Las Vegas Municipal Courthouse.
