Sherman’s Planning & Zoning Commission will consider a pair of zoning change requests to allow multi-family residences during its meeting Tuesday at 5 p.m. in the council chambers of City Hall, 220 W. Mulberry St.


The first request, to change from a one family residential district to a multi-family residential district, covers less than an acre of land at 1305 S. FM 1417 for a planned apartment complex at the location. The commission approved a site plan for the apartment complex during its Nov. 21 meeting.


The second request, which would change the land to a multi-family residential district from a retail business district and one family residential district, is for part of the Stone Creek Golf Course in the 2600-2700 blocks of South U.S. Highway 75. The owners are requesting the zoning change for future development.


The owner of five properties in the Preston Club subdivision off of U.S. Highway 82 West is seeking several zoning changes of a different sort. The owner is asking the properties at 2932, 3218, 3315 and 3323 Preston Club Drive, as well as the 5010 Buffalo Ridge Trail, which were all annexed into the city last May as single family agricultural land, be rezoned as one family residential property to allow the construction of a new residential dwelling on each.


The owner of the former Roberts, Sanford and Taylor building at 124 North Walnut St. is seeking a specific use permit and site plan approval to open an event center at the location. The 2,243 square foot interior area and 5,316 square foot courtyard will provide a preserved space for events and community gatherings in Sherman’s downtown area.


FedEx Freight is seeking site plan approval, as well as three exceptions from the board of adjustments, for a new building at 1426 West FM 1417 in the city’s Progress Park II industrial area. The new building, which is to be located on the southeast corner of FM 1417 and Flanary Road, would include 5,818 square feet of office area, 19,250 square feet of warehouse, an 182 square foot lube shed and 2,080 square feet of service area.


Hollis Unlimited is seeking a specific use permit and site plan approval to open a resale shop at 220 North Sunset Blvd., suite A, which is next to the Dollar General store in the Westwood Village Shopping Center.


RGB Eye Associates, at 1625 N. U.S. Highway 75, is seeking permission from the board of adjustments for a 427 square foot wall sign on its west side instead of the normally allowed 300 square foot sign for that area of the city.


The board of adjustments will also consider a request to renew a temporary use permit to allow the operation of a snow cone stand at 1330 West Taylor Street, across from Fairview Park. The stand, which has been at that location since 1999, would be allowed to operate from May through September, if approved.
