East Baton Rouge Parish Clerk of Court Doug Welborn announced in a news release dated Jan. 24, 2017, that the branch office located on Coursey Boulevard will relocate to 9050 Airline Hwy. The Clerk of Court’s new location will open for business at 7:30 a.m. Monday, Jan. 30.  

“We have occupied our Coursey office for many years now but due to new ownership, the space is no longer available," Welborn said.  "We appreciate the many individuals in City-Parish government who have assisted us in obtaining this new space and we look forward to serving our customers more efficiently than ever here.”

The move will take place on the weekend beginning Friday, Jan. 27, and the Coursey branch office will close early that day to begin the moving process. The downtown office will remain open regular hours on Friday: 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. 

The Clerk of Court’s new branch office is in the former admissions entrance of the previous Woman’s Hospital facility, facing Airline Highway. The office is between the old patient tower bordered by Goodwood Boulevard and the newer tower area now occupied by the Baton Rouge City Police Department.

Parking is available directly in front of the office and the lot may be accessed from Airline Highway. Access is also available off Goodwood Boulevard and Connells Village Lane. The close proximity of the parking area to the office and the ground floor office space are among the improvements that the new office will offer customers.

“We will have more space for customer service, qualifying candidates and conducting election commissioner training classes as well as a central location with the new office,” Welborn said. “We hope that our customers will find the new location convenient to access and use, and the feedback that we have received so far indicates that they will.”
