City officials are weighing their options on how to fill the hole left by the demolished courthouse.

According to NewsWest 9, as the new Midland Convention Center begins construction, city officials are now making plans for the site of the old courthouse.

Some of the options they have are as follows:

  • Fill the hole left by the old courthouse with dirt from the construction of the new Midland Convention Center.
  • The city would use a compaction of the hole.
  • Make the site a downtown park.

Whichever option the city chooses will still take about 6 weeks to complete.
