Innsbrook officials are working on plans for a smaller and less expensive new village hall after plans for a bigger building were rejected.
Innsbrook trustees are beginning to consider a new plan to replace the current Village Hall building.
The new plans, which are still in their infancy, were discussed during the Dec. 13 village board meeting.
The hope is that the village will be able to build a 2,000-square foot building at a cost of $600,000, and continue to use Cochran Engineering as the main architect for the project.
“If they can prove that we can’t do that and we can’t get everything we need in there, then we can go back and discuss it,” Trustee Mike Lyles said during the meeting.
No action was taken during the meeting after a roughly 10-minute discussion on the issue.
The new plans are being discussed by a building committee that was formed prior to the Nov. 14 meeting and includes Lyles, Trustee Cynthia Cook, and Planning and Zoning Commissioner Brandon Pfeiffer.
Initial plans for a new Innsbrook Village Hall called for a building to contain 3,321 square feet of finished space at a cost of more than $1 million, and which drew the ire of several members of the small Warren County community.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture denied the village a loan of more than $1.4 million for the project in September.
