Back to News
During a February 6 Village Board meeting, planning and zoning amendments were approved that advance a new Chevrolet dealership in Pleasant Prairie. In January, Final Site and Operational Plans for a new sales and service center were approved for Lynch Chevrolet by the Village Plan Commission. The new Chevrolet dealership will be located south of State Highway 50 at 10901 75th Street in Pleasant Prairie. Lynch Motor Vehicle Group, based in Burlington, operates multiple vehicle dealerships in Wisconsin and Illinois and currently has a temporary location further east on Highway 50.
Lynch has already started grading work and making stormwater improvements at the site. Recently, the automotive group purchased an additional 2.1 acres directly to the south of the property to add to their site. Plans call for a 31,000 square foot building, with a 5,000 square foot showroom, to be built on approximately 8.3 acres. The new facility is proposed to be complete during the summer of 2012. “We are pleased and excited to welcome Lynch to Pleasant Prairie,” commented Jean Werbie-Harris, Community Development Director in Pleasant Prairie. “We wish them a great deal of success in their new venture.”
Upon opening, the dealership is expected to employ 35 full-time and 5 part-time employees. Proposed hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. and Saturday between 7:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Access to the dealership will be made from State Highway 50 until the proposed improvement of the state highway in 2016. At that time, access will be created through the future 109th Avenue.
