SHERMAN, Texas (KTEN) -- As the city of Sherman continues to grow, city staffers are preparing for the city's future. 

Sherman planning and zoning recently approved the city's comprehensive plan. 

This plan focuses on the city's housing needs and the cost of housing. 

"It's kind of a map and a road map for us, so that we know today, what we're planning on in the future, so we can keep that guideline in mind as we keep making decisions," said Sherman city councilmen, Shawn Teamann.

The city's plan also addresses future zoning and recommends the funding for future downtown projects.
