Leaders Continue Listening to Feedback on Open Space Park Planning

People stand and look at easel.

More than 200 people shared feedback at an Open Space Park master planning open house Monday with members of the Sioux Center City Council, the Heritage Village Board, Parks Board, and the Joint Use Committee. For those unable to attend, response is being accepted online and on paper through February 12.

“All of the stakeholders had the opportunity to hear and discuss ideas with residents Monday, and we will hear more from people in the next few weeks as well,” Mayor David Krahling said. “This community feedback will help the council members as they weigh how to chart a path for the decades to come.”

Residents’ feedback was requested by the city council as they consider three proposed concepts for the future use of portions of Open Space Park, specifically the location of Heritage Village and a proposed indoor turf facility. 

The concepts range from having both Heritage Village and an indoor turf facility on a southern Open Space site to having one or the other at a different location. The three concepts were developed through conversations with the Heritage Village Board, Parks Board, Joint Use Committee, Parks Board, and other community members.

Those unable to attend Monday’s open house in-person have an opportunity to review the Open Space Park master planning concepts and share feedback online as well as on paper by Friday, Feb. 12. The concepts and online feedback form are available at Those who prefer to review and respond on paper can do so at the City Office or Sioux Center Public Library.

The city council plans to review public feedback at the Feb. 15 council meeting.
