On May 26, 2021, the City Council unanimously adopted an Economic Development Policy that fosters economic growth and social progress for all residents. The Policy pillars focus on expanding the tax base South of I-30 and South of the Trinity River. It is a powerful and proactive mechanism that supports hyper-local investments, new job creation, corporate relocation, and is the tool needed to foster resilient and prosperous communities.
The Policy will begin with a one-year transition period by which the City of Dallas will put in place processes and infrastructure to support the decade-long Policy implementation.
Also, on May 26, 2021, the City Council unanimously endorsed the creation of an Economic Development Entity. The Entity will showcase all that the City of Dallas has to offer – to promote and boost Economic Development and vitality.
