More news on this project coming soon!
The historic White Bear Town Hall has been in jeopardy of demolition for several years. The White Bear Lake Area Historical Society has worked with the Township to develop a plan for relocation and educational programming in partnership with the local schools and youth programs. The Township has made progress with planning including identifying a site within Polar Lakes Park and preparing a site plan.
The Town Board plans to hear opinions and make a final decision at their regular meeting Monday, July 6th at 7pm at Heritage Hall. The Town Board is concerned about the cost of the project and the projected use of the facility. We need your support at this meeting to make the Town Hall Rehabilitation Project a reality.
If the Town Board decides on Monday evening to deny the proposal to preserve the center of Township government for more than 125 years the community will lose an asset that cannot be replaced.
