The Downtown Columbia Business & Professionals Association recently voiced its opposition to a proposal to move the Maury County Courthouse to the Columbia Mall, the Daily Herald reports. A lack of handicap accessibility, security problems and the occasional severe over-crowding of the building are among the reasons Judge Bobby Sands said he feels the move is necessary. But James Lund, president of the downtown association, says such a move could possibly destroy what has happened so far in downtown Columbia. "We need to help the county come up with a solution," he argues.
