SHERMAN, Texas -- Pilots taking off from Sherman Municipal Airport could soon see a housing project that will make the city very unique.

There's a plan to built 67 residences that include hanger space -- basically a parking garage for your airplane, under or next to your home.

The Silver Falcon Aviation Community will let residents get out of bed and take off.

"They could hop in, like they would their vehicle, and drive out of their homes," said City Council member Shawn Teamann, who represents District 1.

"I think its going to help our neighborhood," said Norma Sisemore, who lives nearby. It's her hope that the development will help focus city services on her neighborhood.

"They come clean up the roads and the next day they're trashed again, and its so trashy-looking around here," Sisemore said. "I'm all for the city growing, and i really think this is going to help our area."

This proposed 26-acre project was granted a special use permit to allow for a gated hangar home community, which will also offer a clubhouse and residential hangar homes. It still requires final approval from the City Council before construction can begin.
