What was the process for approval and timeline of this project?

Updated: 3-3-22

A Government Center Building Subcommittee was formed in March of 2021 to discuss and review the need for an expansion of the St. Croix County Government Center in Hudson. The committee reviewed previous studies, toured County facilities, met with County employees to learn more about the space needs of the Government Center. After seven months of discussion, the subcommittee voted to recommend the project move forward to the Administration Committee meeting in January 2022 for consideration. Below is a timeline of this project:

  • November – December 2021: Held public open houses for residents of the County to learn more about this project from County employees and representatives.
  • November 10, 2021 Open House
  • December 8, 2021 Open House
  • December 2021: The plan was presented at the County Board of Supervisors Meeting on December 7.
  • January 2022: The proposal was brought in front of the Administration Committee. The Committee recommended the County Board review the proposal for consideration.
  • February 2022: Although the majority of the County Board voted in favor of the Government Center Expansion Project at the February County Board Meeting, the bond issue for the project did not receive the required three quarters vote to pass. This project has been modified to address the feedback from the County Board. The modified project will be reviewed at the February Administration Committee meeting.
  • March 2022: The County Board voted to approve funding for this project.
  • After March 2022: We will share regular updates about the progress of the project.
