A new event center is in the works for St. Joseph.
Rolling Ridge Wedding & Event Center will host weddings and other special events at 31101 Stearns County Road 133. It is the same location as Scenic Specialties Landscape Co.
The St. Joseph City Council approved Thursday a special use permit for the site.
Randy Schmitz, who owns the property, said in information provided to the city that he plans to renovate a barn on the site to host events from May to October. Weddings could be held outside on a wooded hillside.
The company also plans to build a facility where events could be held year round. When that facility is built, the property owner would be required to put in a paved parking lot.
The property would not have a liquor license because it would host private parties and not be open to the public.
