The Caledonia village board voted unanimously to approve a conditional use permit that would allow the village to build a 12,470 square-foot village hall at 5043 Chester Lane.

In March, the Village Board approved hiring New Berlin-based Anderson Ashton Design/Building to develop design plans for a $3.5 million, 12,470 square-foot village hall on the northeast corner of Chester Lane and Four Mile Road. This includes spending $1 million on furniture, equipment and having a contingency fund.

The project is expected to start sometime this summer.

The current building was constructed in 1953 when the Village was a Town. In 2013, the Village Hall had a leaky roof, insufficient work space and is not being handicap accessible. The Village voted to repair the roof then, but the work space has continued to be insufficient as the village has grown.

The special board meeting closed session will be held at 6:30 p.m. and the village board meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Monday at the East Side Community Center, 6156 Douglas Ave.

The next step will be to bid the project out.
