The San Joaquin County Superior Court is in the planning stages to reopen the Lodi branch in early 2015, according to Court Executive Officer Rosa Junqueiro.

Officials visited the court on Tuesday to consider where different offices would be located.

The Lodi courthouse will offer all the services it did before closing, including arraignments, civil and criminal cases, small claims court, jury trials, traffic cases and passports.

The courthouse is made up of two courtrooms — one that closed in October 2011 and the other which closed March 2013. They were both shut down because of budget cuts.

Junqueiro said she hopes this will provide an “easier way to justice” for Lodi residents, and those in northern San Joaquin County, including Woodbridge, Lockeford, Clements and Acampo.

The cost of bringing back the courthouse should be less then half-million dollars — around $400,000 — for the next six months.

There are also plans to bring back the Tracy Courthouse in the 2015/2016 fiscal year, said Junqueiro.
