Marion County Prosecutor Ryan Mears told IBJ last week that he hasn’t decided whether his office will move to the new Community Justice Campus, which remains under construction in the Twin Aire neighborhood.
The office was expected to be part of a second office building that Browning Investments planned to build at the site to complement a jail, Sheriff’s Office and court system that will be moving to the campus at the end of the year.
Host Mason King talks with IBJ reporters Leslie Bonilla Muñiz and Mickey Shuey about their reporting on the topic, including the reasons Mears gave for his hesitancy and why the mayor wants the prosecutor at the campus.
One thought on “IBJ Podcast: Will the Prosecutor’s Office move to the new Community Justice Campus?”
I listened to the podcast. How about a future episode that discusses the harm of downtown businesses when thousands of weekday customers leave Downtown for the new CJC in Twin Aire? What is the City proactively doing to help businesses stay open in the wake of a massive shift of workers and others that previously visited the City County Building on a daily basis? Will East Market Street and the City Market become and ghost town?
