  • Parking: Several handicapped only parking spaces are available and are located adjacent to the building on the corner of Pine and Washington streets.

  • Wheelchair Access: An exterior ramp is available between the Pine Street parking area and the main entrance on Church St. Once inside the building, both a stair lift and elevator will get you to your destination on any floor in the courthouse.

  • Auditory Impairments: Each courtroom is equipped with a Phonic Ear® Personal FM System. The wireless receivers will allow a person to sit anywhere in the courtroom and hear the proceedings. Persons who do or do not have hearing aids may use them. Should you wish to use this assistive listening device, just ask the court attendant or bailiff.

  • Visual Impairments: Individuals with severe visual impairments or who are blind are encouraged to bring an assistant. Some signage in the courthouse is available in Braille and designated computers in the Public Law Center and Law Library are equipped with magnifying software.
  • Accommodations:  If you have business at the Courthouse and require accommodations (such as as assistive listening device or a sign language interpreter) due to a disability, please contact the Court at (530) 265-7209 at least two weeks in advance to ensure the availability of the accommodation you need.
