The 24-feet high building will be located just south of the village offices on the west side of M-15. The facility along with parking lot will occupy about 4.5 acres.

The property is zoned general business and the business will employ two people. The business will close at 11 p.m. each night and account for about 900 feet of frontage on M-15. The capacity of the building will be 175 occupants with a lighted exterior. Construction could begin within two weeks weather permitting.
