Commerce to adopt downtown plan at Jan. 17 meeting

friday morning newscast graphic

The city has been receiving public input and working with DFW architects Freese and Nichols on possible plans.

  • The City of Commerce has announced that it will adopt a master plan for the downtown area at next Tuesday’s regular meeting of the Commerce City Council. The city has been working with DFW-based architectural firm Freese and Nichols to explore options for the city’s downtown blocks. The city has said the current proposal could cost about $6 million, which is around half of the “Re-Imagine Commerce” proposal from a few years back that was not implemented. The city has said it plans to cover as much of the cost as possible through grants. Tuesday evening’s regular meeting of the Commerce City Council is scheduled for 6 p.m. at city hall.
  • Monday’s Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day holiday will be celebrated with the annual parade in Greenville. The parade is scheduled to start at 10 a.m. at Bethlehem Baptist Church at 3809 Lee Street and will travel down to the Farmer’s Market square and back. Following the parade, there will be a ceremony at Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Church at 4707 Washington Street. In Commerce, the 13th annual MLK Awards Ceremony, sponsored by the Hunt County African American Leadership Conference, is scheduled at 2:30 p.m. Sunday at Mt. Moriah Baptist Church, 202 Champion Lane in Commerce.
