At the April 3 meeting, the City Council requested additional information and research be collected related to the five existing Village Hall options. As a result of this additional study, a “sixth option” has been developed for a concept using the existing Village Hall site in the historic downtown.
This new construction option consists of a new two-story, at-grade/no basement, 8,520 sq. ft. building (approximately 4,260 sq. ft. per floor). The concept includes city hall offices, as well as a dual-purposed space for community events (with a caterer’s kitchen), and City Council Chambers. The estimated cost of construction is $3,997,661, with an estimated tax impact of $201 for a $300,000 home.
At Monday’s meeting, the City Council will consider selecting a “preferred option” for Village Hall. The selection would result in City staff developing an “action plan” for the implementation of the “preferred option.” The action plan would be reviewed and considered at a future City Council meeting. The City Council will be considering this new downtown option, as well as all the previously discussed options, at their meeting on Monday, April 17 at 7 pm.

Aleta Mechtel, President and Founder of Children of Tomorrow Learning Centers, recently held a ceremonial groundbreaking for a new location in Carver. Children of Tomorrow staff and business partners, along with Council Member Courtney Johnson and Mayor Mike Webb, took part in the event to mark the beginning of construction for the nearly 10,000 sq. ft. facility.
“With waiting lists at our other locations, we quickly noticed a great demand for childcare and early education in the Carver area and decided to help fill this need in this growing community,” said Aleta Mechtel.
Located at 4745 Dahlgren Road, Children of Tomorrow will be situated less than a mile from the new Carver Elementary along Jonathan Carver Parkway. The new facility will serve up to 127 children from 6 weeks to 9 years of age and will employ a staff of twenty when it opens in the fall of 2017.
Mayor Mike Webb commented, “Aleta, her team, and the services provided at Children of Tomorrow will be a tremendous asset to families in Carver and the surrounding area.”
Children of Tomorrow Learning Centers are also located in Chanhanssen, Waconia, and Norwood Young America. For more information on Children of Tomorrow Learning Centers visit www.childrenoftomorrow.com.

The annual Carver Clean-up Day is approaching…with a date for the event to be scheduled shortly. The City is working with a local hauler on some programming and logistical challenges, due in part to the popularity of the program. As a result, Carver Clean-up Day will be scheduled later this spring…as opposed to late April or early May. Once selected, the date will be shared via the City’s website, social media accounts, and in an insert in your utility bill. Please stay tuned for the announcement!
