MISSION — Last week Sharyland Independent School District board members, along with an architect and engineers, visited the site of the proposed second high school on 6 ½ Mile Line and Shary roads to allow trustees to see land and ask questions on where buildings were going to be and what needed to be done to prepare for construction.
The land, more recently being used as agricultural property, will need to be raised nearly 36 inches to be higher than Shary Road. Water and sewer lines will also need to be established. Board members are waiting to see if the City of McAllen will annex the property so they can be tied into the city for sanitary lines, or if other options will work.
