The new, $12.8 million, 43,000 square foot facility has more space for county services and doubled the parking capacity, helping Tarrant County residents and businesses access these resources in a more efficient and convenient manner. The old courthouse was only 17,000 square feet.
It will be home to Precinct 3 offices of Tarrant County Commissioner Gary Fickes, Constable Precinct 3, County Clerk and Justice of the Peace Precinct 3, as well as the Tax Assessor-Collector and the Tarrant County Credit Union. A new addition is a community room on the first floor.
“We outgrew the old facility years ago and have operated in cramped quarters that were inefficient,” says Tarrant County Precinct 3 Commissioner Gary Fickes. “By upgrading technology, expanding office sizes to meet present and future demand, and offering more parking for our citizens, this new courthouse is more accessible and efficient.”
