SHERMAN, TX -- Kelly Square is a fixture on the courthouse square, and now there are some changes underway in the shops, and plans to bring in a new elevator to get people up to the restaurant and offices.

The deli in the front of the store has shut down. Current tenant Sandi's Boutique will take over the right side, and on the left, the Women's Gift Exchange will move from the back.

Kelly Square Inc. is applying for $13,000 in a city Historic Building Restoration and Improvement Grant, which comes from hotel-motel tax.

That's one quarter of the cost to add two balconies over the awnings to accompany a piano bar at Fulbelli's Restaurant, along with a new $34,000 elevator.

"We have a freight elevator," says Downtown Style shop owner Farene Freeman. "I think you have to call someone from upstairs to come down and pick you up. It's not accessible like this one will be."

The city council will consider approval of the grant at a meeting Monday. Fulbelli's is expected to open a new lunch counter to replace the market filled by the deli.

The new elevator would be located in the middle of the open space where there is currently an old telephone booth.
