Towson District Court operations will relocate to new facilities in Catonsville in early January, the Maryland Judiciary announced Monday.
The temporary relocation, to allow for a scheduled HVAC system replacement in Towson, is expected to last six months, according to a news release. The Towson courthouse will close at 4:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 3 and its operations will resume Monday, Jan. 6 in its new location in the Rolling Crossroads Professional Park, which is nearing completion.
During the weekend of the move, District Court commissioners will be available only at the Essex and the old Catonsville courthouse, according to the release. The old Catonsville courthouse, at 900 Walker Ave., will continue normal operations during the period.
Once the HVAC work in Towson is complete, Towson District Court operations will return there.
“The Maryland Judiciary is committed to making it a seamless transition with no disruption in services for court users,” District Court Chief Judge John P. Morrissey said in a statement. “The temporary courthouse relocation ensures the safety and well-being of everyone while critical HVAC repairs are being made.”
