Master plan reveals opportunities to restore Courthouse

Savanna Gregg/Burnet Bulletin
Work on a new Burnet County Courthouse Master Plan has pointed out the need to rework the elevator so it goes to the basement, where the Precinct 1 JP office is located. Customers currently can call the JP office to have a clerk assist them on the first floor instead.

A preservation architect has completed nearly 60 percent of a master plan for the Burnet County Courthouse and already has identified a number of areas where the county could improve the building by taking advantage of available grant funding, County Judge James Oakley said.

Burnet County contracted with Architexas earlier this year to draw up a new Courthouse Master Plan. The county received a $44,900 grant from the Texas Historic Commission's Historic Courthouse Preservation Program and has contributed matching funds of $5,000 for a grand total of $49,900.

The Master Plan includes an evaluation and assessment of existing conditions and proposed recommendations for restoration, including current and proposed site and floor plans.
