The Denison City Council is expected to approve new infill ordinances at its regular meeting on Monday, among several other items on a busy agenda. The infill standards, which were previously approved by the city’s Planning and Zoning Commission, will allow developers more flexibility when building on vacant lots in developed neighborhoods. The infill area in which the new standards will apply includes virtually all of east Denison from Perry Street, as well as select neighborhoods in the north area of the city.

In other Council business, the city will consider how to proceed with its public library renovation project. The city will need to find an additional $25,000 to complete Phase I of the project, which would satisfy the essential elements of the renovation. Additionally, Council members will be asked to decide if the city should spend an additional $100,000 to concurrently tackle Phases II and III, which deal with staff work areas and landscaping.


Council members will meet in executive session to discuss the city’s ongoing quest to spend $115,000 in public money to tear down the dilapidated Central Ward schoolhouse against the owner’s wishes. The closed session will also include discussions on personnel matters and economic development.


The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. at City Hall.
