Portage County Municipal Court

Richard L. Bowen + Associates was commissioned by Portage County Commissioners to design the County's new municipal court in the City of Kent. The design intent was to meet county guidelines while working harmoniously with the City of Kent's local character.

Our architects and civil engineers worked with the county and the city to choose the ideal site for this new building, taking into consideration size, parking, traffic, access to utilities, expansion availability, public and staff access, and visual image. RLB+A then oversaw the site clearing, utility relocation, and land preparation. The building features two state-of-the-art courtrooms, Adult Probation offices, Prosecutor's offices, the offices of the Clerk of Courts - Criminal and Civil Divisions, as well as additional administrative and archival storage space..
