Consultants are recommending that Sherman invest nearly $9.31 million in the Sherman Municipal Airport over the next 20 years. These recommendations came as a part of the conclusion of nearly six months of evaluations and planning by city officials by consultants on how best to utilize the small airport.

For the first phase of projects, the city’s cost could be as low as $534,000 thanks to grants and funding from the Texas Department of Transportation. TxDOT offers funding for capital improvement projects at a 90-10 ratio.
