Last month, Mayor Joe Hogsett was joined by Marion County Sheriff John Layton, members of the City-County Council, Citizens Energy Group CEO Jeff Harrison, and neighborhood leaders to break ground on the site of the future Community Justice Campus. Located on the site of the former Citizens Energy Coke Plant in the Twin Aire neighborhood, the campus will be home to a jail, courthouse, Sheriff's Office, and an Assessment and Intervention Center. The groundbreaking commemorated the acquisition of 140 acres of land from Citizens Energy Group and kicked off the first phase of development that will include the construction of the building pads and utility corridors for the jail and courthouse. The initial funding for the first phase of construction as well as the completion of the land acquisition were passed with unanimous votes by the City-County Council.
