The  Sherman-Denison MPO is proposing to amend both the 2040 MTP and the 2015-2018 TIP to accommodate the additional revenue stream provided by Proposition 1 (which was approved by Texas voters in November of 2014).  

As part of its public participation policy the MPO will make these draft documents available for public comment for at least 30 days. These documents are now available for public review and comment. MPO staff will be requesting that the MPO Policy Board adopt this document at its regularly scheduled meeting on November 10, 2015.
