Victoria Building Mugs

The Victoria City Council meets at the Municipal Court building, 107 W. Juan Linn St.

At the Victoria City Council meeting Tuesday, the council is expected to discuss concerns raised by residents of the newly reconstructed Crestwood Drive.

City Manager Jesús Garza said the city wouldn’t have official options to address the concerns by Tuesday.

“But we want to at least communicate that we are looking into it.”

Members of the city met with residents Friday to hear their concerns and placed radars on the street to track traffic speeds. That data should be available in the next two weeks and will help provide them with concrete data that will help inform future decisions. No action will be taken on the issue on Tuesday, however.

The Council will also hear an update on the Capital Improvement Plan, a multi-year plan to identify and address the City’s major needs. Capital Improvement Plan projects are typically over $100,000 in value and have a life expectancy of greater than 10 years.

The city aims to implement the Capital Improvement Plan by June. Projects will then be incorporated into the 2022 proposed budget.

This story was updated May 3, 2021 to correct the day and time of the meeting.
