Sulphur Springs Anticipating 1,100+ Subdivision To Be Built West Of Town


Emily Glass, former mayor of Sulphur Springs and our commentator on events in the city, relates plans for a 278-acre subdivision with up to 1,159 single-family homes to be built about a mile west of the city on State Highway 11.

The Sulphur Springs City Council recently approved a preliminary plat for the subdivision to be built by Oak National Development. The houses would be from 1,800 to 2,400 square feet in size and the prices would start at $320,000. The subdivision would be built in phases. Emily also discusses the return of Sulphur Springs ISD assistant superintendent for secondary education and state programs Josh Williams as principal of Sulphur Springs High School, after Derek Driver took the job of principal at Celina High School.
