Planning Group to Continue Heritage Village Discussions

A planning group looking into future ideas for Sioux Center’s Heritage Village will begin meeting.

The group was developed at a Sioux Center City Council meeting regarding an estate gift to Heritage Village and discussion about future Heritage Village plans.

The area near the Heritage Village has been part of ongoing discussions for property development, including a proposed new high school building.

The Heritage Village discussion group will include members of the Heritage Village advisory board, Mayor Dennis Walstra, City Manager Scott Wynja, and a council member.

“We can get together as a group and start discussions on the future of Heritage Village, and with whomever we include, make sure it’s amenable to all parties,” Walstra said. “The sooner we can start on that, the better.”

Heritage Village board president Larry Te Grotenhuis agreed to pursue further discussion in this manner.

“That’ll probably give us something we can hang our hat on so we can move forward,” he said.

Also during Thursday’s meeting, the council voted to follow the recommendations of the Heritage Village board regarding an estate gift of farm ground. The board recommended the property be sold at a public auction, and the council voted to follow those wishes.

The proceeds of that sale are designated to the Heritage Village with the provision that a building be constructed to house antique items gifted to Heritage Village from the estate, which belonged to Wilbur Hulstein.
