|Linn County held a ribbon-cutting and open house for the Linn County Juvenile Justice Center on November 9, 2011. This is Linn County’s second newly constructed building to open following the 2008 flood and houses juvenile probation offices, Juvenile County Attorneys and the juvenile court functions that were in the lower level of the Courthouse on May’s Island.
The ceremony included remarks from Linn County Board of Supervisor Chairman Ben Rogers, Chief Judge of the Sixth Judicial District Patrick Grady and State Court Administrator David Boyd.
“This is an exciting, transformational time for Linn County. We are finally moving past the rebuilding stage of flood recovery to the ‘rebuilt’ stage,” said Ben Rogers, Chairman of the Linn County Board of Supervisors. “The new Juvenile Justice Center symbolizes positive change for Linn County just as it does for the youth it will serve.”
The Juvenile Justice Center meets Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certification standards, an internationally recognized green building certification system. The Linn County Juvenile Justice Center is located at 211 8th Avenue SW in Cedar Rapids.
