The Sioux Center City Council will hold a public hearing about a site for a new Family Crisis Centers facility.
The council set a public hearing for January 17 at 12 noon to consider an option agreement with the Family Crisis Centers to purchase property from the City of Sioux Center.
This land, about 3 acres, is in the area just west of the Sioux Center Health campus in eastern Sioux Center.
“As the City of Sioux Center continues to grow, the project may spark future commercial and professional office land uses as well as future residential options," said City Manager Scott Wynja. “The location of the Family Crisis Centers' project in this area will complement the new hospital and other development opportunities"
Several months ago the Family Crisis Centers executive director, Shari Kastein, asked the council for guidance in selecting a location for a new $8.5 million center.
Family Crisis Centers, of Sioux Center, offers services to people victimized by domestic violence and human trafficking in the 17-county area and survivors of homicide in 29 Iowa counties. It also hosts the statewide Iowa Domestic Violence Hotline.
