DENISON, Texas (KTEN) — The Denison City Council has approved the transfer of 28 acres of land at the northwest corner of U.S. 75 and FM 84 to the Denison Development Alliance, which will expand the Texoma Technology Park

"Couldn't be in a better location than what we have right here in Denison," said DDA president Tony Kaai.  "It gives us more flexibility as we start to develop it, and hopefully get some prospects to build some buildings there and create new jobs and new investment."

Thirty acres of the 180-acre park will be set aside for mixed use; the rest of the land will be designated for industrial property. 

"We'll be looking for any kind of manufacturing company that needs to be in this area, and we think that there will be a lot of interest from the chip plants for suppliers to those chip plants," Kaai said. 

Denison resident Christina Moran believes the future growth at the park will have a positive impact on the city. 

"We need people help people get good paying jobs, help support the families, you know? Seeing the steady growth in our economy overall, it's a blessing to have big companies here," she said.

The Denison Development Alliance is already seeing interest in investments at the park. 

"On a daily basis, we're talking to somebody from out of this area that's interested in making an investment," Kaai said.
