Always on the grow and always improving,
Taylor completed or started five projects totaling more than $100M in 2010.
These improvements include a new sports complex, a new high school, overhaul of our main gateway (Second Street - US 79B), a higher education center, and an ERCOT expansion.
The City Council regularly hears and reports to the public the status of ongoing capital improvement projects. Click here to see two years of reports.
