City of Norman Municipal Court to unveil new facility to neighbors, community at ribbon-cutting on March 8

Community members are welcome to the ribbon-cutting and grand opening of the new Municipal Court, 321 N. Webster Avenue, at 3 p.m. March 8. The voter-approved $3.7 million construction project was completed in December and marks a major milestone for court staff who, collectively, have more than 200 years of experience between them.

“This facility provides adequate space for daily court functions and is built for the future,” said Municipal Court Administrator Ronda Guerrero, who shared that the new setup is complete to become a Court of Record should the City of Norman someday see that requirement. “This impressive building stands as a symbol of our commitment to provide a fair and efficient judicial process for all members of our community.”

Modern technologies, spacious and comfortable courtroom seating, enhanced security measures and improved accessibility features are a few of the facility’s new amenities. The Norman Police Department (NPD) will absorb the former space that Municipal Court staff occupied – at the northwest corner of N. Santa Fe Avenue and W. Daws Street – which is connected to the NPD facility.

The ribbon-cutting will feature speakers and include refreshments, and be followed by building tours. Those unable to attend can catch a digital tour here.

The Municipal Court team at the City of Norman operates with a mission to provide equal justice for all, protect the right of the victim and the defendant, and – if the defendant is convicted – assess a penalty which will deter the defendant and others from similar conduct which acts to the ultimate welfare of the entire community and reflects judicial administration at its best.
