Sidewalks Link New Areas of Sherman

11-1-06 - The city of Sherman has finished a new project that will link major developments in the future. The city linked a lake, athletic fields and an elementary school with sidewalks.

Just this week they completed one and a half miles of sidewalk that start at Herman Baker Park, wind down Center Street and end at Binkley Park.

Of course Herman Baker has its lake. Binkley is a newer park that is being developed and will also be the site of a new elementary school.

Add to that these athletic fields that the city recently acquired and the sidewalks will provide a safe way to get between each spot for park goers or even children that go to that new elementary school and eventually to nearby neighborhoods.

The project cost a total of 165-thousand dollars in last year’s budget.
