The GCMPO is releasing a proposed amendment to the 2045 MTP for public review and comment.  The MTP is a comprehensive planning document which will guide the development of transportation facilities and services over the next twenty-five (25) years to best serve the citizens of Grayson County.  The proposed amendment can be found by clicking HERE.

In addition, the GCMPO will host a public meeting on Tuesday, January 17, 2023, at 5:00pm in the Assembly Room, Grayson County Courthouse, 100 W Houston St, Sherman, TX 75090.
