Crosby begins anew in New Year

By LEWIS SPEARMAN

CROSBY – Many here will glad to see 2003 over and there are those ready to greet 2004. The last year has been one of controversy and developments that are sure to change the face of Main Street.

One of the changes that drew most attention last year was that Wal-Mart Properties Inc. had found sufficient data about Crosby to purchase land and a Wal-Mart Supercenter behind and north of their current location is nearing completion.

H.E.B. Pantry closed its door in late Sept., 2003.

Crosby and Huffman passed school bonds, both anticipating increases in student population.

Early reports from local developers indicated that the U.S. 90 to IH-610 was back on the 5 year plan, but later in the year it was learned that the plan has now been delayed a year or four. The project may now be completed in 2012.
