The Village of Caledonia is asking the developer of the Parkview Senior Living Community to put in a southbound left-turn lane off of Douglas Avenue, but the village agreed to reimburse him for at least some of the cost.
In 2011, Mike Hayek, the engineer for the Village, told Alf McConnell, the developer on the project, that they would need to pay for any improvements made to the Highway 32 entrance due to the large number of emergency calls the Caledonia Fire Department responds to at the facility.
The village worked out an agreement with McConnell where the village reimburse McConnell a percentage of the taxes paid when he completes the expansion project, which — once completed — will mean the property will have an assessed value of $1,000,000 or more. McConnell won’t pay interest. However, the road project is expected to be completed by the end of this summer.

Parkview recently completed building 73 apartments, which house a dementia and Alzheimer care wing near the current buildings located just north of Kmart along Highway 32 near 4 Mile Road. The senior living apartment complex now has three apartment buildings.
