The site of the old Indianapolis International Airport, next to the current airport runway is being considered for a new criminal justice center.

A top Indianapolis city official says they‘ve narrowed down their top site choices for the new $500 million criminal justice complex.

Mayor Greg Ballard‘s Chief of Staff Ryan Vaughn says the old GM Stamping Plant site on the west edge of downtown appears to be the most economically feasible.

However, Vaughn says the old Indianapolis International Airport site remains in the running.

Vaughn says if the city chooses the old GM site, officials would have to enter acquisition talks with Racer Trust which owns the property.

He adds that any site would still be up for public comment. Vaughn says they anticipate having a final site selection in the next few weeks.
