Forget the repairs, Miami-Dade needs a new courthouse
The courthouse was constructed from 1925 through 1928, when Model Ts rumbled up Flagler Street and Dade County had a population of under 43,000. Today, our county’s population is more than 2.6 million, and more than 1 million people visit the courthouse annually, including 65,000 citizens called for jury duty, people using the law library and thousands of lawyers, litigants and witnesses.
It is time to face reality and build a properly sized courthouse suited for modern times rather than the times of the Model T.
