A representative of Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard told Marion Superior judges Friday that the site of a proposed Criminal Justice Complex is still under consideration, as is who might be considered to build the facility.

Kurt Fullbeck, a project manager with the city bond bank, briefed the Marion Superior Executive Committee on the project for which the city received five responses to a request for qualifications earlier this month. The city has declined to identify respondents.

“We’re happy with the responses. We’re ecstatic about the quality of the responses,” Fullbeck said. He said no decision had been made as to where the facility for criminal courts, jails and court-related offices would be located.

“We’re continuing to do due diligence,” he said.

A city-sponsored market survey identified land near Indianapolis International Airport as the preferred site, but the proposed location has drawn criticism from judges, lawyers and residents.

According to the city’s procurement schedule, a short-list of prospective developers will be announced March 4, revised proposals would be due by in August, and a preferred developer would be selected in September. Work is expected to begin early next year with opening scheduled in 2018.

Meanwhile, five judges are expected to tour the Wake County Justice Center in Raleigh, N.C., on Wednesday. That 11-story, $180 million facility housing criminal courts and county functions opened last year across the street from the Wake County Courthouse.

  1. Thanks for this article. We live in Evansville, IN and are aware of how bad the child abuse is here. Can you please send us the statistics for here in Vanderburgh, County. Our web site is: www.ritualabusefree.org Thanks again

  2. This ruling has no application to Indiana. The tail end of the article is misleading where it states criminal penalties await those who refuse a test. This is false. An administrative license suspension is what awaits you. No more, no less.

  3. Yellow journalism much??? "The outcome underscores that the direction of U.S. immigration policy will be determined in large part by this fall's presidential election, a campaign in which immigration already has played an outsized role." OUTSIZED? by whose standards? Also this: "In either case, legal challenges to executive action under her administration would come to a court that would have a majority of Democratic-appointed justices and, in all likelihood, give efforts to help immigrants a friendlier reception." Ah, also, did you forget an adjective at the *** marks ahead by any chance? Thinking of one that rhymes with bald eagle? " In either case, legal challenges to executive action under her administration would come to a court that would have a majority of Democratic-appointed justices and, in all likelihood, give efforts to help *** immigrants a friendlier reception."

  4. Definition of furnish. : to provide (a room or building) with furniture. : to supply or give (something) to someone or something. : to supply or give to (someone) something that is needed or wanted. Judge Kincaid: if furnish means provide, and the constitution says the provider in a uni is the township, how on earth are they seperated??

  5. I never filed a law suite. I had no money for a lawyer. In 2010 I presented for MRI/with contrast. The technician stuck my left arm three times with needle to inject dye. I was w/out O2 for two minutes, not breathing, no ambulance was called. I suffered an Embolism ,Myocardia infarction. Permanent memory loss, heart damage. After the event, I could not remember what I did five seconds earlier. I had no-one to help me. I lost my dental hygiene career, been homeless, etc.
