SHERMAN, Tex. -- The city of Sherman is growing and changing, and city officials say they need a plan for its bright future.
The city council says they have a plan, but they are first taking proposals from firms interested in taking part.
They met on Wednesday to answer any questions about where the city is headed.
Officials say people are mostly concerned about how they will maintain the old Sherman while adding the new parts of Sherman, but the council says they are dedicated to preserving the historical parts that add value to the city while focusing on future growth.
"This entire process is vital to our development in the future, because this really is our roadmap for how we will develop in the next five, ten, twenty years," said assistant city manager Robby Hefton.
A plan for new growth and development should be ready by the summer of 2008.
