DENISON, TX -- First Sherman got some new sidewalks downtown, and now Denison could be next, after council members signed off on a plan to apply for funds from Austin.

City council members approved a resolution applying to the Texas Department of Transportation for a $948,750 project to put in a block and a half of new sidewalks going west from Heritage Park at West Main Street and Burnett Avenue.

If approved, TexDOT would give 80 percent of the funding under the Transportation Enhancement Program, while the city puts in 20 percent, or $189,750.

"It just really kind of has a snowball effect, it's proven in downtowns throughout the United States that when you see the new sidewalks, things begin to grow from there," says Main Street director Donna Dow.

Dow says TexDOT should decide by next September, and that it would be the first part of a wider effort to put in new sidewalks in the downtown area.
