Posted Mar 21, 2024 4:34 PM


Once again, the Victoria community is invited to a forum to provide insights and opinions about Phase 2 of St. John’s Place.  The meeting is set for 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the VFW. Refreshments and door prizes will be part of the event.  

Sponsored by the Victoria Community Coalition, the meeting will be facilitated by Betty Johnson of the Dane Hansen Foundation. Groundbreaking for Phase 1 is set for Sunday, April 2.

The Coalition hopes to gain input about future building uses, including a child care, a senior center and a library. The coalition hopes for representation from the Victoria Recreation Commission, the Herzogfest Committee, the Victoria Alumni Association, the USD 432 School Board, Victoria City Council, civics classes and Grow Hays.

The meeting will open with an update on Phase 1, which will include photos of the demolition and design plans. 

Coalition President Jeff Pfeifer said some of the hoped-for outcomes will be the formation of task forces/committees and a time for city-wide communication and involvement.

It will also be a time to celebrate community successes, including the new Dollar General store, tree projects and senior high school civics projects that will leave their marks on the community.
