580 West Texas Street, Fairfield, CA
Funded by Senate Bill 1407
Initial Funding Year: FY 2009-2010
For this reason, the AOC is undertaking a renovation of the historic Old Solano Courthouse in Fairfield. The courthouse, designed by E.C. Hemmings, is an outstanding example of Beaux Arts architecture expressed in a civic building. The 1911 building served as a functioning courthouse until the 1970s. It became vacant in 2005, when the County moved to its new government center.
Renovation will restore this beautiful, historic building to use as a fully functioning courthouse, providing three courtrooms under new judgeships for civil cases. The project includes:
The County donated the Old Solano Courthouse property to the state at no cost. The building does not have landmark status; however, the state, county, and court team have approached the project with sensitivity to a thoughtful restoration to modern use while preserving the building's classic features. Construction work on the renovation commenced in spring 2013.
California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Compliance
The AOC complied with CEQA by filing a categorical exemption for this project on October 8, 2009.
