Marvin Village Hall is located at 10006 Marvin School Road on the corner of New Town Road and Marvin School Road. Completed in April 2022, the new spacious building was built to be the center of and the gathering place for the Marvin Community.
The Village Hall project has been the subject of Council deliberations for years. At the time of incorporation, Village Staff operated out of a local residence and did not have a public office. In 2003, Marvin Village Hall opened to the public at 10004 New Town Road, next door to Banks Presbyterian Church. Over the years as Marvin grew, so did Village Staff and the functions of the Village Government. Council after Council acknowledged the need for more office space and began taking the first steps towards a new Village Hall.
In 2019, the Village Hall project went out for bid for the first time. Unfortunately, after the bids came back, it was determined that the project would be far too expensive. In 2020, the Village Council worked with numerous property owners in Marvin hoping to find a location for Village Hall that would be much more affordable to build upon. After exhausting all options for locations for the new Village Hall, the Village Council determined it would be best to build on the original site and reconfigure the plans to reduce costs.
