Wanted: Vacant courts

Bills ask state to turn three buildings over to Salem

(Continued)

“They’re a great group, and I’d love to see them be able to take the buildings and get them transformed and reused.”

Keenan said he has run this proposal past the state Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance, which oversees state property and handled the $106 million construction of the new courthouse. The bill, he stressed, is not a slight on the agency, which he said has been a “great partner” in Salem.

“But we have a vehicle with the SRA,” Keenan said, “that’s intended to do these types of projects, so why wouldn’t we take advantage of that?”
