St. Croix County

St. Croix County will hold two open houses to share information about the need for an expansion to the County’s Government Center. County employees, county representatives and architects will be available to share information and answer questions about the need for expansion and the benefits to the county.

The open houses will be held in the County Board Room of the Government Center in Hudson. The first open house was held Wednesday, Nov. 10, from 4-6 p.m. The second will be Dec. 8 from 4-6 p.m. 

St. Croix County is experiencing an increased need for additional services to meet the needs of the growing county, the the second fastest-growing county in Wisconsin. 

As the need for services increase, the need for space to provide those services also increases. To meet future needs of residents, the county is proposing an expansion to the existing Government Center Building in Hudson.

This expansion would be the first major renovation of the center since it was built almost 30

years ago in 1993. This expansion and renovation of the existing building is designed to meet the county’s needs for at least another 20-30 years. Some important features of this expansion include:

• Large centrally located entrance

• Easy access to all departments

• Wide halls and elevators to improve accessibility

• More meeting space and courtroom space with technology upgrades.

• More space to provide current and new services to residents

• Sustainable design and use of alternative energies

• Shared space for local law enforcement, corrections, and public defenders

• Direct access to Vine Street. Creating two points of access to the Government Center.
