  • Sergeant Jiggler I am sure the Parties On The Patio will still continue to go on with Live Music just as they do in other establishments that are located in the city. They may end a little earlier but they will still be taking place. And to Mr. Will I would assume you have never been to Lu Raq's because every since they have been in business smoking inside has never been allowed. Come on people I know this is a message board but think before you speak what's on your mind.

  • Excellent place for our growing city's waste treatment plant.

  • No more smoking at Lou Raqs as well.

  • Just out of curiosity, what is Victoria's credit rating? Where does S&P come out on our ability to take on debt? Sure, infrasture investments seem like a good idea in troubled times, but I really balk at anything that smells like a good deal for real estate developers and not the town as a whole.

  • Plus LuRaqs would have to conform to the city's noise bylaws which would put an end to their patio parties.

  • Come on LuRaq's. Are you really excited about the prospect of having to pay city taxes. Your restaurant is built already. You have no need for city utilities or services which I'm sure will be even more money out of your pocket.

  • The plan is obviously to annex and continue to grow north. Once a suitable site is selected City Hall will relocate somewhere north of Loop 463 and we move to phase 2. That is when Victoria dissolves it's city charter, sheds it massive debt burden in bankruptcy, loses the "aging" center and south side, and then re-incorporates as New Victoria or North Victoria, or Armstrongville.

  • Where is the $3.9 million coming from? Say no to the annexation. If people want to build North, good for them, but jump starting with a $3.9 million annexation seems stupid. Ditto the $13.2 million. These are the same horrible planners that gave you gridlock with the new schools -- I have little confidence that they are going to get this right. Besides, the city using its monies (probably borrowed) to build North means that there will be less money to maintain existing infrastructure in the rapidly aging center and south side of town. Two very big thumbs down.
