Foley Drive to be closed to through traffic effective Monday, March 4

A major road reconstruction will impact traffic in the Foley Drive neighborhood.

On Monday, March 4, crews will begin a project to completely rebuild a section of Foley Drive from Bristol Drive to National Road with a new gravel base, catch basins, curbs and driveway approaches. Contractors will also be replacing the water main and the sewer lines.

The project will impact traffic in the neighborhood, with Foley Drive closed to through traffic. Foley Drive residents will have access to their property throughout the project, and access will be maintained to all local businesses.

The project is expected to be completed by the end of July.

While the project is underway, City officials are asking for your help.

  • For the safety of work crews and motorists, avoid Foley Drive whenever possible. It is recommended that drivers access the neighborhood via Brown School Road. This will also serve to minimize construction delays.
  • Do not park your vehicle on the street within the construction zone. This will serve to reduce the risk of your vehicle being damaged by debris, and will also serve to minimize construction delays.

If you have questions or concerns regarding this project, call Vandalia Development and Engineering Services during regular business hours, 937-898-3750. For immediate or urgent concerns after regular business hours, call 937-898-5868.

Division of Police accepting Citizen Police Academy applications

Download the Citizens Police Academy Application Here


The Citizen Police Academy (CPA) is an instructional program designed to provide Vandalia citizens with an understanding of the science and art of policing. The comprehensive program is designed to provide information on the law enforcement profession and its government principles.

The CPA will introduce citizens to a number of current law enforcement issues and the latest Vandalia Division of Police procedures. It is not our intention to train citizens to take police action or perform law enforcement duties, but to provide them with an overview of how a police department operates. An optional ride-along and tour of police facilities is included in the program. Training is provided by police officers and civilians that have experience in the related subject areas.

The CPA is offered in the evening over a eight-week consecutive week period, with classes once per week on Thursdays. Classes begin at 6:00 p.m. and conclude at 8:30 p.m. The academy will start on March 28, 2019 through May 16, 2019.

The interaction that takes place during the Citizen Police Academy benefits both the citizens of the Vandalia community and the Vandalia Division of Police.


If you have further questions about the CPA, you may contact Officer Holly Estepp at (937) 415-2272 or email me at hestepp@vandaliaohio.org.

Vandalia accepting applications for arts grants

The Vandalia Cultural Arts Advisory Committee has announced its 2019 Grant Program. 

Priding itself on providing Vandalia residents with opportunities for a variety of art and cultural experiences, members of the Committee are hopeful that a wide array of organizations will request support in the 2019 funding cycle.

Current VCAP members include local residents Regina Froschauer, Kimberly Hyatt, Justin Spivey and Joanne Townsend.  Council Member Candice Farst serves as City Council liaison to the group.

The Vandalia Cultural Arts Endowment Fund was formed in 2002 to advance and support artistic and cultural activities, programs, performances and organizations for the benefit of the citizens of Vandalia. Vandalia City Council appoints five citizens to the advisory committee to oversee the fund and determine where resources might best be placed.

To be eligible for 2019 grants, artistic endeavors must take place between July 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020.  Most importantly, projects must directly benefit as many City of Vandalia residents as possible.  Sponsoring organizations must be non-profit. Grant applications will be scored based on the project’s impact on Vandalia, quality and appeal, among other factors.  Up to $7,500, in all, will be granted in 2019.  Individual grant size will depend on the number of applications. Grant applications are available in the City Manager’s Office at the Vandalia Municipal Building or  by CLICKING HERE. The deadline for submission of applications is February 15.

 In 2018, the Advisory Board awarded the following grants: 

$3,500 to Aullwood Audubon Center and Farm-Chris Rowlands Mural Project at Demmitt Elementary School

  • $1,200 to Demmitt Elementary School-Muse Machine Residency
