The Sherman City Council will consider a name change for a portion of O.B. Groner Road near the new Sherman High School during its regular meeting at 5 p.m. Monday in the council chambers of City Hall, 220 W. Mulberry St.
The proposed resolution would rename the section of O.B. Groner from FM 1417 to Moore Street as West Travis Street. The extension of Travis Street on the west side of U.S. Highway 75 currently goes through the Sherman Crossroads development and will ultimately be a four-lane, divided roadway that will connect with that section of what is now O.B. Groner Road at its intersection with FM 1417.
City staff estimated the cost to change all the street signs on that section of roadway at $500.
The council will also receive an update on the city’s recycling program and consider alternatives for the program moving forward.
Site plan approval will be considered for Douglass Distributing’s planned Legacy Village gas station, convenience store and car wash at 3707 S. U.S. Highway 75.
Public hearings will be held on three items approved at last month’s Planning & Zoning Commission meeting and a separate ordinance to appoint election officials for the Nov. 6 election. The hearings related to the P&Z meeting concern a proposed office building at 301 South Crockett Street, a zoning change for a duplex at 301 East Brockett Street and another duplex at 1600 and 1602 North Travis Street.
At the start of the meeting, the council will receive a special presentation from Sherman Chamber of Commerce President/CEO Eddie Brown recognizing the 2018 Leadership Sherman class and will proclaim Oct. 20 as “Lions White Cane Day” in the city.
At the end of the meeting, the council will go into a closed, executive session to consult with the city attorney about pending litigation and more, as well as deliberation regarding economic development negotiations.
