City Council Meeting Recap

A recap of the March 8, 2021, City Council work session and public meeting.

Work Session

Council looked at two possible developments for the city. One was a possible residential development in the southwest portion of Mansfield. The other concerned the proposed Lumberyard development that would be food, entertainment and family attractions to the historic downtown. Both of these presentations were preliminary looks at each project. The developers will now work with staff to bring those projects forward for council action.

On the agenda for the 7 p.m. public meeting:
