The City of Denton has scheduled five public information meetings throughout the month of December regarding upcoming construction projects. Citizens are invited and encouraged to attend the meetings to receive information and to discuss the specific projects with City of Denton staff.
The meetings will provide information about four major construction projects that are scheduled to begin in early 2019, and one meeting is intended to gather public input during the early planning stage of a project to enhance the “mews” streets surrounding the Downtown Denton Square.
