Sherman is hard at work delivering Major Improvement Projects. City leaders and staff have been working steadily to plan, design, and build the necessary roadway, drainage, water, and wastewater improvements to support the tremendous growth currently taking place. Sherman has successfully secured the site of a new Texas Instruments manufacturing plant making for one of the largest economic development projects in Texas. Additionally, Sherman will also be home to a new semi-conductor manufacturing facility established by Global Wafers of America. Projects within this program are being financed by a combination of City general funds, utility funds and bond funds with the assistance of the Greater Texoma Utility Authority.
The City has contracted with Pape-Dawson Engineers to provide professional services in the role of Program Manager to support the successful delivery of the infrastructure projects. As Program Manager, Pape-Dawson supports the City with the oversight of design consultants, general contractors, and Construction Manager At Risk firms, and coordinates engineering, design, and construction activities.
