Suwanee municipal court moving to city hall for renovation project

Suwanee’s municipal court is temporarily moving to Suwanee City Hall while renovations are underway.

The court is housed at Suwanee’s original city hall, a nearly 60-year-old building at 323 Buford Highway. That building will undergo a renovation and addition starting May 1, according to a city press release.

The municipal court will move to the current city hall, which sits across Town Center Park from the old building, at 330 Town Center Ave. There will be a clerk at city hall to handle payments and routine questions, and court sessions will also be held in the building. “Day-to-day court functions” will occur down the street at the Suwanee Police Department’s headquarters starting May 6. 

The Buford Highway building will get an expanded lobby to accommodate larger crowds, twice its current amount of clerk work space and a new space for the police department’s special enforcement unit. The renovations to the building are expected to be completed in early 2020, the city said.
