Environmental Review Statement

Update:  May 1

On April 27th, Governor Abbott issued Executive Order GA-18. Tyler County Judge Blanchette and I, Cathy Bennett, Mayor of the City of Ivanhoe have made the decision to basically adopt the Order that Governor Abbott has issued.  

The City of Ivanhoe Third Executive Order is posted below. You will notice that I have attached the City of Ivanhoe Order to that of the Governor.

At the same time the governor issued his order, The Governor’s Report to OPEN TEXAS was issued. It is a 66 page manual produced by his Strike Force which details procedure for implementing the first phase of opening Texas. This is the link for that publication:  It is very easy to understand and quite specific. Please refer to it for clarification regarding how this phase of Opening Texas is to proceed.

We are still supposed to practice Social Distancing and stay home as much as possible. 

As far as the parks and lakes in Ivanhoe, the IPOIA which owns the parks and lakes has agreed to open the parks from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. as long as everyone adheres to the guidelines set forth by the Governor, which are that no one should gather in groups of more than 5 and Social Distancing must be practiced.

Update:  April 15

Within the next week or two we will begin ditch work and culvert replacement on Chanticleer between Ivanhoe Dr. and Lakewood and on Charmaine South. This work is to prepare for the repaving of each of these streets.

As the cross-culverts are replaced, it will be necessary to close the roadway and detour traffic. We will notify you on the City website and on  the City of Ivanhoe, Texas  Facebook page at least a day ahead of time regarding where the road closures will be. Each closure should last no longer than a day and a half.


As stated in the Amended Emergency Order, City Hall Offices will remain open but access will be limited to the entrance foyer for everyone except employees.  If you have any questions, please call 409-283-3299.

This precaution is being taken to protect both the public and our City employees.
