Beginning January 1, 2017, a $5 surcharge will be added to parking and moving violations in Multnomah County to help fund the county’s new central courthouse. Construction of the new courthouse began this fall at the west end of the Hawthorne Bridge. It will replace the existing courthouse built in 1914, which is structurally and functionally obsolete. The new courthouse is scheduled to open in 2020.

The Multnomah County Courthouse is the busiest in the state. More than 450,000 cases per year are processed in the courthouse.  Approximately 2/3 are parking or moving violations.

Most of the money to build the new courthouse is coming from county and state appropriations and bonding. The $5 surcharge on parking and moving violations in Multnomah County will fund a small portion of the $300 million project.  The surcharge will be collected beginning January 1 as part of the fine.
