Murphy City Council was not in a very giving mood last week as they denied two requests by developers and one by a property owner, and restricted operations of a lighted sign at an elementary school.
The council met in regular session Tuesday, Dec. 4.
First denial was for an amendment to a planned development that would allow construction of townhomes on property in the 600 block of E. FM 544 at McMillan Drive.
The property is 3.413 acres behind the O’Reilly Auto Parts store and adjacent to a set of active railroad tracks. Proposed was the construction of 31 townhomes of 1,600-2,200 square feet marketed at a cost of about $350,000 each.
