A new courthouse to meet the county’s growing needs

In addition to responding to the current pressing need, the new building has been designed to serve the county’s needs for the next 30 to 50 years, as the population in this part of the United States continues to increase.

Given this rapid growth, Wake County, which handled 169,000 court filings in 2000, expects this number to rise to 391,000 in 2030. The number of pre-trial incarcerations will also continue to increase as the county’s prisons are already overcrowded by 50%.
