Here is the City of Victoria Facebook post. Comments welcomed.

We've always been a huge fan of downtown Victoria so it's no surprise that we've been keeping abreast of plans for its renovation and revitalization and have been excited to keep you in the know as well.

The City of Victoria offers this civic alert for you to view as well, here.

After months of data collecting, community input, endless hours of research, meetings, and serious number crunching, the City of Victoria has put together a comprehensive plan for the future of downtown Victoria.

What is the Downtown Plan you might be wondering?

Well, according to the brochure available right now for our community to view here, one of the answers to What is the Downtown Plan offers this,  "The Downtown Plan determines and illustrates the community’s vision for the future of Downtown Victoria." It also offers, "The Plan will be used by City staff and City Council to determine future capital improvements, provide a vision to discuss with potential investors, and as a reference point for current and future City Councils to understand the vision and desires of the community as they make decisions affecting Downtown going forward."

Why do we need a Downtown Plan?

Again, the City of Victoria offers this for the community, "It helps the City make incremental improvements to enhance the experience and quality of life in Downtown and encourage further private investment in the area.

How can you be a part of The Plan?
