Waukesha State Bank plans branch at Hartland bowling alley site

Waukesha State Bank is working on plans to build a bank branch in Hartland at the current site of the Hartbrook Lanes bowling alley at 550 Hartbrook Drive.

The Hartland Plan Commission reviewed the proposal at its meeting on Monday.

Waukesha State Bank has branch locations in Waukesha, Brookfield, Delafield, Mukwonago, Muskego, New Berlin, Oconomowoc, Pewaukee and Sussex, but the bank has no branches in Hartland currently.

Bank executives could not be reached for comment.

An employee reached at Hartbrook Lanes said that Waukesha State Bank has an option to buy the property, but “nothing has been finalized” and the bowling alley will remain open for “another year at least.”

“They have an option to buy the property,” said the Hartbrook Lanes employee, who declined to provide his name. “We get so many offers (to buy the property) every year. (The bank) is just trying to see if they can do what they want to do.”

The bowling alley building was built in 1975 and the property has an assessed value of $1.23 million, according to Waukesha County records.
