State names advisers for Nevada City courthouse building project
The roster is out for an advisory group working on the new Nevada City courthouse building project.
Judges, local court officials, members of the state Administrative Office of the Courts and community leaders are on the team.
The project advisory group will provide advice and input to the project, primarily during site selection and design. The proposed $108 million courthouse project is currently in the earliest phase of site selection, a process that typically takes one to two years.
Currently, the group is evaluating a number of site options, with further research to come.
State officials noted that some members of the project advisory group also belong to the “Save Our Downtown Courthouse” committee, but the committee is considering a full range of locations because downtown site options are extremely limited.
Advisory group members:
• Nevada City Manager Gene Albaugh
• Capt. Jeff Powell, Nevada County Sheriff’s Office
• Hon. Thomas M. Anderson, Presiding Judge of Nevada County Superior Court
• Hon. Candace S. Heidelberger, Assistant Presiding Judge, Superior Court of Nevada County
• Hon. Julie A. McManus, Judge, Superior Court of Nevada County
• Mr. Steve Monaghan, Chief Information Officer, Nevada County
• Mr. Sean Metroka, Court Executive Officer, Superior Court of Nevada County
• Mr. Stephen Baker, Nevada County Bar Association
• Ms. Theresa Dunn, Senior Real Estate Analyst, Administrative Office of the Courts
• Mr. Ted Kopecko, Project Manager, Design and Construction Services, Administrative Office of the Courts
• Mr. Rob Uvalle, Senior Project Manager, Design and Construction Services, Administrative Office of the Courts
