If you are looking for Jackson County Transit you will not find them in their former location on Skyland Drive in Sylva. Jackson County Transit has completed the move to their new home on Haywood Road just west of Dillsboro next to the Green Energy Park. The Transit Department has operated in the County Services Building that once was the home of Southern Lumber Company. The property was collateral for a loan used to open a full service building supply which was not able to survive with the arrival of the big box stores. Once the County took control of the building several departments relocated into the facility including Jackson County Transit and the Driver’s License Office, the property was also a county vehicle and equipment depot. The new home of Jackson County Transit in located next to the Green Energy Park and the Dillsboro Landfill in the former home of Western Builders. The property was purchased from Western Builders several years ago when the well on the property was found to be contaminated by leakage from the landfill. Once a water and sewer line was installed to the property and connected to the Tuckasegee Water and Sewer Authority the building and grounds were used to house portions of the Jackson County Maintenance Department. The former home of the Jackson County Transit Authority will be converted into the Jackson County Board of Elections. Part of the building will be contain a classroom. The voting machines will be stored there. Some county offices now located in the Justice Center may be relocated to the County Services Center to make create addition space for the court system. Consultants from Herry Design will be in Sylva in mid-January to receive suggestions for better utilization of the space in the Justice Center then plan for renovation to that facility. The judicial system and Judge Brad Letts have asked the county to remodel the Jackson County Justice Center to meet the growing needs for space for court and court related offices.
