Big Changes In Store for City of Pottsboro

Posted:

POTTSBORO, TX--- Several big changes are in store for the city of Pottsboro. The city is on the verge of an unprecedented growth spurt and changes will include a new grocery store, strip mall, event center and city park improvements. Next Wednesday, the city will receive their first grocery store.

"It's a big boom for the city of Pottsboro," Pottsboro City Manager Kevin Farley said. "It has created jobs and excitement. I think folks are really ready for the city of Pottsboro to have its own grocery store."

Several businesses are looking to move into the area surrounding the new Brookshire's Food & Pharmacy, but Farley no plans have been finalized yet.

Shortly after the new store opens, the James G. Thompson park will get two additional baseball fields, a fountain and some playground improvements.  

"We're looking at installing some parking lot lighting and safety lighting," Farley said. "We have two completed baseball fields that are on sight that we need to provide lighting for too."

A new event center at the Lighthouse Resort and Marina, as well as a strip mall at Tanglewood Resort will also be coming to the area.

Event center construction broke ground this week and strip mall construction will start within the next two weeks.
