County Council President David G. Boschert thinks the county courthouse ought to stay on Church Circle in Annapolis and plans to introduce a resolution that says so at tonight's council meeting.
"It is imperative that it stays in its present location, in my opinion," Mr. Boschert said.
To move the courthouse from the city's historic district would have a detrimental effect on the downtown economy, he said.
By introducing his resolution, Mr. Boschert will add his voice to the many who want to keep the courthouse where it is. The county has reached a tentative agreement with Annapolis officials to erect two new court buildings on the site next to the historic building if they are allowed to exceed the city's height and bulk guidelines.
