New courthouse on hold


Plans for a new courthouse at the former State Police barracks on Meadowbrook Drive appear to have suffered a setback. Local officials have been trying to keep a court in Milford since 2011, when a court consolidation plan proposed moving Milford District Court to the new Merrimack courthouse. State officials eventually relented and agreed to build a new court at the former barracks and provided $50,000 to conduct a feasibility study and preliminary design work. It was estimated that the new courthouse would cost $4 million, but when Governor Maggie Hassan presented her proposed budget for 2014-2015, it did not include funds for the project.
