Dear Community Leaders and Stakeholders, You’ve come to the Connecting Source. The Garland Chamber of Commerce strives to be a vehicle that brings together the common goals of the community it serves. The late Sam Walton once said of his company’s success, “We’re all working together; that’s the secret.” The Chamber helps us all work together – business leaders, community leaders, and stakeholders – to make Garland a better place to live, work and serve. I am privileged to serve as the new Chairman of the Board for the Garland Chamber of Commerce. As the president of Baylor Medical Center at Garland, I have seen the benefits that the Chamber provides first-hand. Through networking opportunities, training, and economic development partnerships, the Chamber lives out its mission to be “servant leaders,” role models of performance excellence and a trusted force for positive change.” On behalf of the Chamber staff and the Board of Directors, thank you for your partnership with the Garland Chamber.

Dear Current and Prospective Garland Businesses: Welcome to Garland, the City of Choice.  As the 10th largest city in the State of Texas, Garland blends small town charm with a spirit of congeniality and graciousness. I am confident you will discover that doing business in Garland is both a profitable and enjoyable experience. Thriving as part of the 4th largest region in the nation, the DFW Metroplex, Garland continually attracts new business and corporate expansions which are lured by the benefits of our city. Garland provides excellent opportunities for its citizens who enjoy living and working here. Our unique Economic Development Partnership brings the Garland Chamber of Commerce, the City of Garland, the Garland Independent School District and the Dallas Community College District together to develop innovative and progressive community strategies. Garland continues to capitalize on its new development and revitalization opportunities. Our neighborhoods and businesses are a top priority and through our Envision Garland planning process and our Strategy for Vital Neighborhoods program, the City of Garland works to ensure a successful climate for our residential and commercial residents. Transportation is integral to a successful business climate.  Garland is proud to be a full-service DART member city with two light rail stations and full bus service. The DART Light Rail Blue Line extension to Rowlett will open in late 2012, bringing new riders into historic Downtown Garland and beyond. In addition, Garland provides easy access to major highways: Interstates 635 and 30, as well as the President George Bush Turnpike. The Eastern Extension of the President George Bush Turnpike will open in late 2011, providing a quick connection between activity hubs in Garland’s northern and southern sectors. Garland remains committed to strengthening our “green” initiatives. We recently opened the Charles Duckworth Utility Services Building (“silver” LEED©), demonstrating the city’s commitment to sustainable development and energy conservation. With solid goals to keep competitive and reliable utilities, Garland Power and Light (GP&L) works with our businesses to manage the operating costs of doing business.  Our community delights in a wealth of entertainment options, including performing arts, golf, shopping and dining. Garland’s cultural arts program is among the best in the metroplex and significantly enhances the quality of life for all the citizens of Garland. Our multi-faceted community continues to map our priorities and blaze new trails into the future. Garland has my commitment to progress. I invite you to become a part of that progress and make Garland your City of Choice. At your service,

GARLAND Garland encompasses the best in both urban and suburban living.

W

ith its southern zone rooted in Dallas County and its northern sector reaching into Collin County, Garland encompasses the best in both urban and suburban living. Bordering the city of Dallas, Garland is conveniently connected to all of North Texas. Garland residents and businesses are only minutes away from any location in the DFW Metroplex.

Connecting Garland to every corner of the planet are two major airports, DFW International and Love Field, also just moments away. Further advancing the area’s transportation infrastructure, the North Texas Transit Authority began expanding SH-190 in 2008, conveniently connecting the fast-growing area of North Garland to Interstate 30. Garland also remains well-connected to DFW by the DART commuter train station downtown.

and other watersports. Also home to the Harbor Point retail development, the lake area features several new restaurants and retail stores, including the 120,000 square foot Bass Pro Shops.

Diversity: URBAN/ Suburban The city of Garland is home to approximately 226,367 residents, making it the 10th largest city in Texas. In spite of its large population, Garland often feels like a small town. Like many communities in the DFW Metroplex, housing in Garland is diversified, with offerings from starter homes to luxury, custom homes, apartments and condos. It has a quaint downtown square with a fountain plaza, treecanopied walkways and shaded rest areas for residents to come together as a community. The city of Garland is working hard to grow intelligently and preserve its own charm. Part of this effort is Garland’s Strategy for Vital Neighborhoods, a groundbreaking plan to encourage development and revitalization in ways that will sustain the unique personality of each neighborhood, promote the livability for residents and businesses and increase property values and investment potential.

Throughout Garland, you’ll find an abundance of recreational opportunities at several beautifully maintained city parks, trails, nature preserves, community centers, senior activity centers, swimming pools and athletics fields. Want even more entertainment? On a warm Texas day, the Hawaiian Falls Water Park or the Surf-N-Swim Wave Pool are just the ticket. Both water parks offer first-rate family fun. Love the arts? Once again, Garland has exactly what you’re looking for. Throughout the year, the city hosts a number of theater and musical events presented by Garland Civic Theater, Garland Summer Musicals, the Garland Symphony and the Garland Opry. Completing these performing arts venues is the Granville Arts Center, a state-of-the-art facility with two Garland’s public library has a story with your name on it. Offering such a high quality of life, Garland is a tremendous place to live, work and play!

Connecting You to a Higher Quality of Life It’s no wonder that CNN and Money magazine ranked Garland the 67th Best Place to Live. For family, fortune and fun, Garland has it all! Just minutes from downtown Garland, you can retreat to nature at one of North Texas’ most beautiful waterways, Lake Ray Hubbard, perfect for fishing, boating 12

Connecting to the Future Complementing its successful manufacturing base, Garland has grown into a more diverse, high-tech business community that’s committed to industry of every kind.

Connecting to Growth Garland is growing on all fronts, retail, commercial and residential alike, for example, the recently completed Centerville Market Place and the Firewheel development. Firewheel is a microcosm of Garland’s present growth. Encompassing office space, premium retail shopping, restaurants, movie theaters and a PGA tour-qualifying golf park – the largest municipal park in Texas – Firewheel has grown to include something for everyone. Just like the entire city. Next to Firewheel is the bustling SH-190 corridor. With new luxury homes, fine dining, shopping and lodging facilities, the 190 corridor has been one of the fastest-growing regions in the country. Another investment in Garland’s growth is the G.I.S.D. Special Events Center, which consists of a multi-use arena and conference center. In 2008, our already-diverse community got even stronger with the opening of the Saigon Mall, the largest Asian market in North Texas. And in 2009, major progress continued with the openings of the Richland College Garland Campus, the Trammell Crow, 5th Street mixeduse project and the new Garland Chamber of Commerce offices, all exciting benchmarks in the redevelopment of downtown.

The city of Garland has more than 350 manufacturers, many of which are household names. In addition to these companies, our city’s businesses cross industrial, size and ethnic boundaries, expanding from manufacturing to include hospitality, healthcare, distribution, financial services, retail, energy, high-tech and more. Now more than ever, personal safety seems to be on our minds. Good news once again. Garland’s public safety agencies are constantly evolving to meet the needs of the city’s growing population. The police department is located on a state-of-the-art campus that includes 181,000 square feet of building space. The fire department serves not only as emergency responders but also as public educators with community programs for home safety and other disaster preparedness. Garland offers peace of mind on the healthcare front, too. Baylor Medical Center at Garland is recognized as a “Top Hospital in Texas” by the Greater Dallas Chamber of Commerce. Additionally, Garland’s residents are also served by Doctor’s Hospital. Today, Garland enters its future, perhaps more promising than ever, with its government, residents, businesses and organizations focused on continuing this boom of success while maintaining the wonderful charm of this city we call home.

The only thing missing is you!

elegantly renovated in 2001 by the City of Garland. The spacious domed lobby of the Plaza Theatre features a spectacular chandelier and a 350 seat auditorium.

The Arts Flourish In Garland... With the completion of the Garland Center for the Performing Arts in June of 1982, the City of Garland began a trend among Texas suburbs to build local facilities where the arts would flourish. The complex includes two luxurious theatres, seating 720 and 200, dressing rooms, kitchen, a rehearsal hall and a spacious lobby area for receptions. The Theatres at the Arts Center provide the perfect setting for performances ranging from plays to symphony concerts. In 2003, The Atrium at the Granville Arts Center was dedicated. The Atrium provides a magnificent setting for special events such as wedding receptions, fundraisers and conventions. The Atrium’s luxurious glass-lined lobby covers over 3100 sq. ft. The 6500 sq. ft banquet hall is encased in glass on two sides and opens onto a spacious courtyard.

Garland has three major affiliate arts groups. Garland Civic Theatre (972-485-8884), founded in 1968, is located on the downtown square. The Garland Symphony Orchestra (972-926-0611) was founded in 1978 and the Garland Summer Musicals (972-205-2790) were created in 1983. Two thirds of the ticket holders to these arts groups come from outside Garland, which is a tribute to the professional quality of their productions. In the past year, the Granville Arts Center Complex and the Plaza Theatre attracted approximately 170,000 patrons for plays, concerts, meetings, and receptions. The Granville Arts Center complex is owned and operated by the City of Garland. In 2003, the Garland City Council named the Arts Center for Patty Granville, who has managed the facility since its opening and has been a driving force in the growth and expansion of the Center. The Arts have been a key ingredient to the development of downtown Garland. The Granville Arts Center and the Plaza Theatre combine to produce a dynamic force, enhancing the quality of life for Garland citizens today and in the future. For more information on the Arts in Garland visit the website at www.GarlandArts.com.

The Plaza Theatre, located on the square in downtown Garland, was donated to the City of Garland in 1991 by Sherri and John Skelton. It was 14

GP&L Encourages Energy Efficiency Conserving energy can be as easy as turning off lights in empty rooms, using compact fluorescent light bulbs, or changing out your air filter on a regular basis. Garland Power & Light customers can do even more to conserve energy by participating in GP&L’s EnergySaver Program. With this program, customers can reduce energy use and save on their electric bills by upgrading to an energy efficient air conditioning system or by making weatherization improvements to their home. These improvements include adding ceiling insulation, installing Energy Star® windows or doors, covering windows with solar screens or film, and replacing ductwork. As an added benefit, customers with qualifying projects receive a credit their utility bills which help to offset the cost of the energy efficiency upgrades. “We have had several hundred customers participate in this program since it began in April 2008,” said GP&L’s Commercial Accounts Manager David Koliba. “The bill credit is a great incentive for customers to make the upgrades which will save them money for years to come.”

GP&L also offers free, online services to assist customers in learning how to use energy more efficiently. With Energy Depot for Homes, customers can create a personalized Energy Profile (Audit) for their home; use an Energy Saving Calculator to figure out how much it costs to operate their appliances; use the Comparison Tool to compare costs and savings for new appliances; consult the Energy Library for information; and e-mail GP&L’s Energy Advisor with any energy efficiency questions. Energy Depot for Business contains similar tools for customers who operate a business or commercial facility. Customers may schedule a free, in-person energy audit to assess the current energy efficiency of their home and key appliances. A personalized report with suggested energy efficiency measures will be provided at the completion of the audit. Some GP&L customers have already made extensive energy efficiency upgrades, while others are just now learning about the steps that they can take to conserve energy. Wherever you are on the path to energy efficiency, GP&L is always here to help.

GARLAND WATER UTILITIES A Deeper Look at Garland Water Garland Water Utilities is a lot like the water and sewer pipes running underneath the city streets – there is much more going on under the surface than you can see. Your City of Garland Water Utility stores purchased water and delivers it to you on demand, tests the water to ensure quality, maintains the infrastructure (pipes and pumps) required to deliver water and remove wastewater, and treats and tests wastewater prior to releasing it back into the water source or selling it. Garland has approximately one thousand miles of water lines and one 34

thousand miles of sewer lines that must be maintained constantly, replaced occasionally and expanded when necessary to accommodate Garland’s growing population. Garland has eleven water storage tanks – three elevated tanks and eight ground storage tanks. The treated water stored in the tanks and delivered through the City’s water lines is purchased from the North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD). Garland is one of thirteen cities that are members of the NTMWD. Under our contract with NTMWD, we purchase approximately 13.8 billion gallons of water per year. The NTMWD provides drinking water to its member cities, plans and develops new water supplies and develops water conservation and drought contingency plans. The raw, or untreated, water processed by NTMWD is taken from five sources: • Lake Lavon (primary source) • Lake Chapman (formerly known as Lake Cooper) • Lake Texoma • The wetlands project near Kaufman, TX (completed in 2008) • Lake Tawakoni

Garland is one of only a few cities in Texas that provides water to its citizens and also provides wastewater treatment services. Garland’s Rowlett Creek wastewater treatment plant is permitted to treat up to twenty four million gallons per day (MGD). Its Duck Creek wastewater plant is permitted to treat up to forty MGD. Both facilities

are regulated by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ). On average, both plants treat fourteen billion gallons of wastewater per year. The treatment plants discharge treated wastewater into Duck Creek which flows into the East Fork of the Trinity River and eventually into the wetlands near Kaufman. Garland Water has its own “CSI� team – the Water Utilities Lab. The lab completes over 36,000 water analyses per year in its state-of-the-art equipped environmental laboratory. Garland’s Water Utilities Lab is proud to be a NELAP accredited laboratory which is an award given by the TCEQ that ensures all quality standards are met and being followed according to a set of standards given by the State of Texas. The Pretreatment Section of the lab collects over one thousand industrial samples per year from a variety of facilities, such as metal finishers, electronic component manufacturers, food industries, and paint and soap blenders. Samples are collected and

analyzed to determine compliance with federal, state and local regulations.

Garland Water Utilities has been recognized numerous times for its innovation and leadership in the water utilities industry. Most recently, the department received the 2009 Texas Municipal Utility Association Outstanding Municipal Utility Award. Garland Water has been recognized nationally for its use of GIS technology, its work management and notification system and for displaying excellence in using fleet management solutions to promote green programs and services. In reality, what Garland Water Utility does “under the surface� is complicated, but the goal is simple: to provide outstanding'ARLAND#HAMBER$IRECTORY!DPDF service to its customers.

2010 Highlights • There were approximately 46 new members who joined the Chamber. • We updated the Chamber logo and redesigned our website www.garlandchamber.com. The new website allows members to register/pay for events and view/pay invoices online. • In an effort to support area businesses and welcome them to Garland, the Chamber staff, its volunteers and Board Members have attended more than 16 ribbon cuttings and grand openings this year. • We heard you and in response to our Member Needs Survey, we hosted or First Annual Business to Business Expo with great success. We had 40 vendors and over 200 attendees. This event offered members an opportunity to network and to display their products

and services to the community and area business people. • To meet the growing needs of women in business the Women’s Business Initiative committee enhanced the quality of programs and increased the number of luncheons and networking events. • In an effort to nurture community partnerships and give back to the Garland Community, the Chamber staff volunteered their time to serve on various non-profit boards/committees that promote things like public service, education, health/wellness, and diversity. • The Chamber continues to be committed to being involved and having a presence in the community we serve. We supported/participated in various community events, such as the NAACP brunch, the Asian Festival and the Hispanic Heritage banquet. We also partnered with the City of Garland to host the 3rd Annual Garland Goes Green Healthy Living Expo: Healthy You…Healthy Earth event. The Chamber staff also supported/ participated in the G.I.S.D. New Teacher reception, Project EDGE and the BEST Education Foundation. • The Chamber began its five year strategic planning process. We coordinated with all Garland community stakeholders to build a plan that would specifically meet the needs of the Garland community as a whole. • In an effort to ensure that we fully understand and continue to meet member’s needs the Chamber staff spent a great deal of time surveying members on events, programs and services. We also hosted two focus groups that provided us with feedback to utilize during our strategic planning process.

The American National Bank of Texas Story American National Bank of Texas is one of the largest and oldest independent banks in Texas. Our bank has thrived in and around Texas communities, both metropolitan and suburban, for 135 years. At the heart of our success lies the ability to meld the advantages traditionally associated with a relationship-based community bank with the benefits of a large financial institution with extensive locations and resources. As an independent community bank, we have strategically focused on our core business, offering a comprehensive array of products, while adhering to solid business and lending practices. American National Bank of Texas has prospered over the past century, building a bank brand synonymous with strength, stability and performance, because we listen to our clients and adapt business practices to best suit the needs of our

customers. With a long, proud history of serving customers throughout North Texas, we are a bank built by the community for the community, dedicated to cultivating relationships with and supporting each of the areas we serve. Building strong ties is part of our bank’s long-standing culture of putting community and customers first. As one of the largest independent banks in Texas, we are able to offer the diverse selection of products and services of a much larger bank while continuing to provide the same personal service that customers expect to receive in a smaller, community bank. And as a well-capitalized financial institution, we are able to significantly invest in the communities we serve, helping customers create stronger economies and build stable, solid foundations for the future. But enough about our story. We want to hear your story.

At the secondary level, the magnet programs are usually “school within a school” programs, offering a mix of regular curriculum and specialized magnet courses.

OPEN Enrollment

Colleges & Universities

Only a handful of districts nationwide offer open enrollment options for students. However, none have a “choice” plan as far-reaching as Garland ISD. While other districts use attendance zones to determine who goes where, in GISD, parents are able to choose the campus they wish to have their child attend. The “Choice of School” period takes place each year in January for the following school year. Each year, between 97% and 98% of our students receive their first choice school!

Garland also offers tremendous choices for college education as well. In Garland, you’ll find the brand-new, LEED-certified Richland College Garland campus, Amberton University, and Remington College. Garland is also conveniently located to the Dallas County Community College District, Southern Methodist University, University of Texas at Dallas, Texas Woman’s University and North Texas University, and the Universities Center of Dallas.

It all begins here…with the Dallas County Community College District… at Eastfield and Richland Colleges, plus community campuses in Garland and Pleasant Grove. The Dallas County Community College District serves students and communities through shared learning experiences, job preparation, economic and workforce development, service learning and community spirit. The district – comprising Brookhaven, Cedar Valley, Eastfield, El Centro, Mountain View, North Lake and Richland Colleges, plus the Dallas TeleCollege –celebrated its 45th anniversary last year. Almost 2 million students have attended DCCCD since the system was founded; it continues to expand, enrolling more than 80,000 credit and 25,000 continuing education students whose needs are growing, too.

workforce development, continuing education, and literacy and other basic skills programs. Diversity is reflected in the faces of students who attend the district’s seven colleges. While the average age is approximately 27, students who enroll range in age from 17 to 90! They can begin taking dual credit enrollment classes in high school, and older lifelong learners are enthusiastic participants in several emeritus programs. The student population is diverse: 32.2 percent white; 24.4 percent African American; 30.9 percent Hispanic; 9.7 percent Asian/Pacific Islander; 0.6 percent American Indian; and 4.1 percent nonresident alien/foreign national.

Serving students DCCCD helps students succeed and communities prosper through education, access, workforce and economic development, and lifelong learning. More than 60 percent of the students who attend DCCCD are enrolled in hundreds of freshman and sophomore academic courses that will transfer to four-year universities across the state… guaranteed. And DCCCD offers more than 100 one- and two-year technical training/certificate programs that give students the skills they need to succeed in today’s job market. That’s guaranteed, too! Additionally, students are enrolled in adult education programs that include

Meeting economic needs

Investing in an education helps both students and communities meet their economic needs. A recent economic impact study shows that taxpayers in Dallas County who support DCCCD earn an 8.2 percent rate of return on each dollar that goes to the district. The report, conducted by Economic Modeling Specialists Inc. for 20082009, says, “By funding the Dallas County Community College District, other recipients of state and local funding actually are subsidized through revenues generated by DCCCD.”

Students, from an investment standpoint, also benefit, earning a 16.3 percent return on the time and money they pay for a college education from the Dallas County Community College District. They increase their potential income, learn new skills and help build a stronger economy in Dallas County and an expanded the tax base for Texas. Both Richland and Eastfield colleges offer credit and continuing education programs and certificates, in addition to corporate and workforce training opportunities. The Richland and Eastfield corporate services offices can provide professional consulting, customized training and workforce development resources to businesses and organizations in the community. These services provide companies with opportunities to enhance the knowledge and skills of their employees which, in turn, contributes to their business success in today’s competitive global market. Small business training also is available through the Richland College Garland Campus in areas that include training in: leadership, customer service, interviewing skills, sales, project management and web design. At Eastfield, workforce education focuses on certificate programs in medical office, customer service, small business management, and training and development. The Eastfield College Pleasant Grove Campus also offers courses in ESL and ESOL, and GED training.

programs. Each of the system’s colleges is individually accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. Although all of DCCCD’s institutions offer a variety of programs, each focuses on creating an educational program designed for the individual student. Distance education is critical to students and their future employers, and the heart of DCCCD’s distance learning operation is the Dallas TeleCollege. Students can take distance learning courses when and where they need them.

Opportunities for everyone Students are DCCCD’s top priority, and the district continues to provide educational opportunities for a diverse population, says Dr. Wright Lassiter, chancellor. DCCCD’s tuition – among the lowest of any community college system in Texas ($45 per credit hour) – puts a college education within reach. Access to higher education is the key to success, and the district seeks to eliminate financial barriers for students by offering scholarships, grants, loans and other programs.
