Meeting Room Reservations

The Village Hall was built as a community building that offers its meeting rooms for public meeting space. Any potential user must provide “benefit to the community” in order to be considered a valid user of the space. Public meeting space is primarily intended for civic, cultural, educational and public information meetings of non-profit groups serving the Village’s community-wide interest.

Staff will respond to requests within 3 business days of them being submitted. Please review the Village's Meeting Space Guidelines.

Currently public meeting rooms are unavailable. Please check back in the Fall of 2021.
