After winning the fourth-largest bond election in Texas history, officials in the Frisco Independent School District north of Dallas are making plans to issue the first installment of 478 million dollars of general obligation bonds.The willingness of voters to invest in infrastructure in the economically distressed“ Telecom Corridor” section of Dallas' northern suburbs during a war with Iraq bodes well for an upcoming 550 million dollar bond election in Dallas on May 3, 2003.With an enrollment that has grown 600 percent in the past decade, Frisco has now won approval for nearly 900 million dollars of debt since 1998.
