Recently, Sherman Economic Develop Corp. has been receiving significant interest in businesses willing to move to Sherman, but only if the city has pre-built sites available. However, the city’s stock of existing buildings is limited.
So in an effort to meet industry demand, SEDCO Board of Directors voted on Tuesday to approve $105,000 agreement with Alliance Architects for design of a new 79,000-square-foot industrial building in an effort to encourage local development.
“We get calls every week from site consultants, companies and existing firms that are looking for existing buildings and we have none,” SEDCO President Kent Sharp said. “We could have some opportunities open in the future, but right now we have none.”
