Developers wishing to build apartment complexes went two-for-three at Tuesdayâ€™s Big Spring City Council meeting.
The council approved two rezoning requests to allow the construction of apartment complexes, but turned down a third application because of significant opposition from residents in the area.
The failed rezoning bid would have resulted in a 32-unit apartment building on a square block bordered by Father Delaney, Douglas, Aylesford and Seventh streets in north Big Spring. The long-abandoned Kate Morrison elementary school building currently sits at the site.
A western skirt, 10-gallon hat, snap up shirts, lined denim jackets, traditional cowboy boots â€” think Yeehaw! A Texas Christmas!
Thatâ€™s the theme for the 29th Big Spring Herald Community Christmas Parade, set for 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 6.
