City of Victor Honors Craig Sherman by Renaming Pioneer Park to Sherman Park

Media Release

City of Victor Idaho, June 14, 2017 –During its regular meeting on June 14, 2017, the Victor City Council paid tribute to Craig Sherman who will be retiring from the City after 34 years of service by unanimously approving a Resolution renaming Pioneer Park to Sherman Park. 

The Council recognized that Sherman started at the City as one of two part time employees and over the years officially served as Administrator, Clerk, Treasurer, Planner, and Public Works Director.  Some of Sherman’s crowning achievements were facilitating the annexation of what is today known as the Airport Subdivision that included a large swath of undeveloped land and creating key policies that would over the course of several years bring to fruition one of Victor’s first neighborhoods.  It was Sherman who saw the designation of 50 acres of park land associated with the Airport Subdivision annexation and who invited citizens to submit ideas to name the park with Pioneer Park being the winning name pulled from a hat during the Holiday Festival. 

The resolution further stated that “Craig Sherman’s tenure at the City of Victor has overtime served as a cornerstone and it is important to fully recognize the impact that he has had on the Victor community socially, economically, and recreationally both from a historic perspective and as we look forward into Victor’s future…. on behalf of the past and present Mayors and Victor City Councilmembers, Victor City Staff, and the entire Victor community, [we] do hereby express our sincere gratitude to Craig Sherman for his genuine kind-heartedness, consideration of community first, institutional knowledge, can do attitude, and thoughtful ability to listen.” 

In accordance, effective immediately, the Victor City Council has renamed Pioneer Park to Sherman Park in honor of Craig Sherman and the dedication he’s shown Victor.
