Creating a Roadmap For a Better Dallas

As part of its mission to support existing and prospective businesses and development opportunities, the City of Dallas Office of Economic Development has engaged the services of AngelouEconomics, an Austin-based economic development consulting firm, to prepare a comprehensive strategic development plan.

The preliminary strategic recommendations are now available to provide the City of Dallas with a road map to leverage its considerable assets and help us reach our economic growth and diversification goals. It also provides a competitive assessment of our community and identifies target industries that have the greatest potential to foster strong economic growth in the future.

Next Steps

The preliminary recommendations were briefed to the Economic Development Committee on December 2, 2019. City Council is in the process of reviewing the draft plan and soliciting additional community feedback.  It's our goal to get community feedback in early 2020 and to seek Dallas City Council approval later in Spring of 2020.
