PENDLETON — Umatilla County is putting together plans to build a new Pendleton courthouse that would allow the local circuit court to have its own building rather than sharing a space with the county government. With a new round of financial help from the Oregon Legislature, local officials expect to address two questions: How much will the new courthouse cost and when would it be built?

Tucked away in a $1.1 billion funding bill passed at the end of the 2023 legislative session was $100,000 to pay for plans to replace the Umatilla County Courthouse. Umatilla County Commissioner Dan Dorran said the money should help the county and a committee of local officials complete plans to move courthouse operations from its location in downtown Pendleton to a new site on the east edge of town near the Umatilla County Sheriff’s Office.
