LEWISVILLE, DENTON COUNTY - The 40,700-sf Denton County Precinct 3 Government Center has broken ground at Valley Pkwy. and Civic Circle. Construction is slated for completion in 360 days.

The two-story building will house offices for the Precinct 3 Commissioner, Precinct 3 Justice of the Peace, Precinct 3 Constable as well as the Texas Department of Public Safety, county clerk and tax assessor/collector offices for southern Denton County, veterans services and an adult probation office.

After the first phase is complete, the existing Lee Walker Government Center will be torn down and replaced with a new one-story facility housing offices for the health department, WIC and juvenile probation, according to Commissioner Bobbie Mitchell.

The buildings will be funded by a $495 million bond package approved by voters across Denton County, $395 million of which is designated for roads and the remainder for county facilities.

Mitchell said plans are underway to build a government facility in Flower Mound to house Precinct 4 Commissioner Andy Eads and his staff.
