The Elkhart County/IN Board of Commissioners met in session on January 21, 2021, to authorize and issue a Letter of Intent and Notice to Proceed for Phase 1 Progressive Design-Build Services to Performance Services. The $63 million progressive design-build project will combine the Goshen and Elkhart courthouses into one consolidated courts building on a 32-acre site close to Goshen, Indiana.
