Governor Approves Expansion for Stanley

The City of Stanley is on Santa’s nice list as Governor Tony Evers announced the State Building Commission approved a $16.5 million health building addition at the Stanley Correctional Institution. With funding finally approved after 3 years in the making, construction is expected to be completed in May of 2025. This addition is proof that the initial investment of the prison is paying off and will continue to be a state asset. This was a major CEDC legislative priority where the Advocacy Committee continued to push for its development. The Committee would like to thank Governor Evers and our legislative delegation for investing in the City of Stanley and its largest employer.
