In March 2016, the Franklin County Board of Commissioners entered into a 26-month contract with AEP Energy to purchase Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) equal to 25.6 million kWh per year. The certificates equate to 100% of the energy currently supplied by AEP to the County’s forty-seven (47) facilities.
Beginning May 5, the main County Courthouse entrance (373 S. High St.), marked by two revolving doors, will be closed indefinitely due to the renovation of the Hall of Justice building.
Entry to the County Courthouse (373 S. High St.) is available at the Pavilion Entrance (365 S. High St.) and the Common Pleas Courthouse (345 S. High St.).
The renovation of the Hall of Justice is expected to be complete this fall. The repurposed facility will feature a first floor conference facility, while the Adult Probation department will occupy floors 4-6, and the Law Library will return to the tenth floor.
Every spring and fall, millions of birds migrate through Columbus on their way to or from their breeding grounds. Many birds migrate at night, and lights on tall buildings can lead to collisions with buildings or windows. Lights Out programs provide an opportunity to reduce the number of collision-related kills by reducing lighting.
The Common Pleas Courthouse opened June 2011. It has a LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
The Franklin County Dog Shelter and Adoption Center opened October 2011. The facility was designed to be LEED Silver and Franklin County is awaiting approval for official certification.
