---- — Whitestown residents may no longer have to cram into the cramped quarters of town hall when they want to attend a meeting. The Whitestown Town Council approved Tuesday night, March 11, to begin working on plans to build a new town hall on 7 acres the town owns on Main Street near Walker Farms. It will take at least 18 months for the new town hall to be built. The town was also considering Cornerstone Community Church as a possible site for a new town hall. "We had initial discussions with the church," Town Manager Dax Norton said. "Those have not gone far from the price perspective. What I do know is that we need out of this building yesterday." The asking price for the church was near $2.7 million. Norton said church officials did not budge on the price. Council President Eric Miller said the council needs to decide if they should try to negotiate with the church again or if they should move forward with plans to build a new town hall.
