View Larger Map
Site and Operational Plans were approved for Lynch Chevrolet to construct a new Chevrolet sales and service center in Pleasant Prairie, during a Plan Commission meeting Monday.
The new dealership will be located south of Highway 50 in approximately the 10800 block.
Lynch Motor Vehicle Group, based in Burlington, operates multiple vehicle dealerships in Wisconsin and Illinois. Plans call for a 31,000 square foot building to be built on approximately 6.25 acres. Grading and underground utility work for the new building is expected to start yet this year. The new facility is proposed to be complete during the summer of 2012. Lynch Chevrolet has opened a temporary dealership farther east on Highway 50 in Kenosha until their permanent location has been constructed.
“We are pleased and excited to welcome Lynch to Pleasant Prairie,” commented Jean Werbie-Harris, community development director for the Village. “We wish them a great deal of success in their new venture.”
Upon opening, the dealership is expected to employ 35 full-time and five part-time employees. Proposed hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. until 9 p.m. and Saturday between 7:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Access to the dealership will be made from Highway 50 until the proposed improvement of the state highway in 2016. At that time, access will be created through the future 109th Avenue.
