As part of a developer agreement on a multi-phase expansion project, officials representing the Siena Center project presented preliminary plans to extend 4 1/2 Mile Road to Erie St. at a Caledonia village board meeting on Monday. The Siena on the Lake project included a $45 million senior living campus to be built in three phases by Siena Partners, a partnership between the Sisters of St. Dominic (Racine Dominicans) and Lincoln Lutheran of Racine, Inc. (LLOR). The Siena Center campus is located at 5635 Erie Street. Part of the developer agreement called for the Siena Center to pay for the extension of the road and put in a left turn lane on Four Mile Road at Erie St., but the preliminary plan focused exclusively on the 4 1/2 Mile Road extension. The Caledonia board referred the project to the plan commission, which is expected to review the project on Sept. 30 and make a recommendation to the village board before giving it a final approval.
