DENISON, Texas (KTEN) -- Denison's City Council members approved this week of new amendments on building townhomes or duplexes in the city.

The council's unanimous decision clarifies where both duplexes and townhomes can be built as part of their ongoing growth. This adjustment will help builders and residences when it comes to the current and future development plan.

"Making sure that they meet the correct requirements when new developers and builders are coming in to build," said Denison Media Manager, Emily Agans. "I believe we clarified that this would require a builder to re-platt specific lots to be a specific size."

The approval of these proposes amendments is effective immediately.
