The Arapahoe County Courthouse, located at 15400 E. 14th Ave. in Aurora, permanently closed its doors for all court business on Friday, August 20. Judicial matters once served by this courthouse have since been consolidated to the Arapahoe County Justice Center, 7325 S. Potomac St. in Centennial.
Recent renovations to the justice center facilitated the move of Arapahoe County court business to a single location. Of the transfer, Eighteenth Judicial District Chief Judge William B. Sylvester remarked:
The consolidation of court services to the Arapahoe County Justice Center in Centennial will eliminate the confusion caused over the years as to which courthouse people are to appear in. This move will enable the court to better serve the public by providing judicial services in one central location.
The county’s Department of Probation Services still operates out of the former courthouse. All civil and small claims matters served by the county’s Littleton courthouse located at 1790 W. Littleton Blvd. will continue being heard at that location.
