DALLAS REGIONAL CHAMBER | WELCOME

WELCOME

A LETTER FROM THE DALLAS REGIONAL CHAMBER

Welcome to the Dallas Region! I recently had the privilege of attending a conference in Tampa with the CEOs of the nation’s largest chambers. The entire time I was there, I realized just how lucky we are to be representing the Dallas Region and this incredible business community. Here’s why: the Dallas Region continues to attract more companies and workers than any place else in the nation, thanks to our very attractive business climate combined with a great quality of life. If you’re running a business, or looking to start one; if you’re DALE PETROSKEY President and Chief looking for a job, or looking to take the next step in your career, Executive Officer there’s no place you’d rather be than right here in Dallas, right now. Dallas Regional Chamber I realize that may sound like a nice string of Chamber platitudes – so don’t take my word for it. Feel free to ask an executive from any of the 70 companies that have relocated corporate headquarters to this region in the past five years – including Toyota, Hilti, Kubota, Active Network, and Omnitracs. Or ask any of the hundreds of existing companies that have expanded local operations here, including State Farm, JP Morgan Chase, or Liberty Mutual. Dallas offers businesses great advantages, thanks to a low-tax environment, a central location, and the fact that we are the global hub for both Southwest Airlines, the nation’s largest airline which is based at Love Field, and American Airlines, the world’s largest airline that calls DFW Airport home with direct flights to more than 50 international destinations every day. Other advantages include relatively few regulations, low workers’ compensation insurance rates, and a high-quality workforce. And we’re a right-to-work state. With new companies and new expansions come lots of new jobs. The Dallas Region created nearly 100,000 jobs in 2015, ranking third nationally – trailing only the megacities New York and Los Angeles. This region adds nearly 125,000 new residents every year, many who are young and highly-educated, moving here to fill the talent needs of our local companies. And those individuals and families who move here soon discover what we’ve known for a long time: Dallas is one of the best places anywhere to live, work, and do business. Affordable housing costs and no state income tax allow families to find a higher quality of life at a lower price than most any other place. Our education system is good -- and getting better every day. And the sports, arts, and entertainment scene is world-class, with wellknown artists and professional and college teams in town just about every day of the year. The name of our new 5-year strategic plan is “Building Tomorrow Together.” We are proud to be the voice of business and the champion for economic development in this region. We serve as a single point of contact for companies, site selection consultants, and corporate real estate executives who are considering a move here. We’d love to connect you with our executives and other impressive local business professionals to discuss how we can help you build and grow your business here in the Dallas Region. We look forward to working with you in the years ahead.

All Best Wishes,

Dale Petroskey President and CEO

2016


The DRC will continue to focus on leading economic development and growth, driving improvements in public education, and influencing public policy to meet the business community’s workforce needs and raise the region’s profile – across the United States and around the world.

DALLAS REGIONAL CHAMBER |  CHAMBER | XXXXXXX ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT SERVICES

Through the DRC’s work in economic development and public policy, Dallas has become a shining example to the country for business opportunities, corporate relocations, and job growth. However, with success comes new challenges. Our new strategic plan builds on the progress over the past 5 years, while committing to address long–term challenges – most significantly, developing and attracting the talent required to meet the future needs of local companies – and those companies considering a move to the region.

OUR TOP PRIORITIES

ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

TALENT PIPELINE

TALENT ATTRACTION

Continued strong economic growth for the Dallas region and our member companies, as well as the ability to prepare and supply the talent for the opportunities created by that growth depends, in part, on critical public policy decisions. The DRC’s tireless advocacy efforts on behalf of a strong pro-growth business climate, an attractive quality of life, and sustainable infrastructure are critical to our priorities being met.

THE DALLAS– FORT WORTH REGION The Dallas Regional Chamber welcomes you and your company to the DFW region. This region is an innovation hub with a wealth of resources that make it an ideal business climate. The DFW region’s attractive quality of life, strong regional and state economy, low cost of living, young and skilled labor force, pro-business mindset and absence of corporate and personal income taxes all contribute to the thriving DFW location. Forward-looking companies seeking a friendly and profitable place to do business are discovering our numerous benefits. Due to its central location and worldclass transportation infrastructure, DFW is a major international gateway. The region excels in passenger air travel and air cargo operations with the nation’s third busiest airport, DFW International Airport; Dallas Love Field Airport, home to the largest domestic airline in the country; and the world’s first fully industrial airport, Fort Worth Alliance Airport. Our roads and rail lines are remarkable for delivery of freight products across the country. Our region ranks among the top three U.S. metropolitan areas for business expansions, relocations and employment growth. DFW’s young, highly educated workforce of over three million people is growing quickly, providing companies with the abundance of talent they need to make their business a success. Texas’ business climate, combined with the attributes and functionality that Dallas currently holds as a major corporate headquarters destination, sends a simple yet compelling message. There is no better region from which to operate a national or global firm today, next year, or even 10 to 20 years from now. We know you will find yourself right at home in the DFW region. We look forward to supporting your business expansion projects.

SUPERIOR COMBINATION OF LOCATION AND ACCESS FEATURING DFW AIRPORT, HIGHWAYS, RAIL AND TELECOMMUNICATIONS

LOCATION You’ve heard the phrase “Everything is bigger in Texas”? That includes the Dallas– Fort Worth region, whose combined footprint is larger than some U.S. states. Dallas–Fort Worth is the nation’s fourth-largest metro area, conveniently CLAY positioned in the middle of the United States and offering competitiveJACK advantages to businesses that locate here. The region’s central location allows it to function as a logistics and distribution hub, giving businesses an edge by putting key markets within easy reach of both truck and rail shipping. For business travelers, the region’s mid-continent location means saving time on travel—any major U.S. city is less than four hours away.

Dallas-Fort Worth’s vast transportation infrastructure provides connectivity for residents and businesses. The freeway system provides east-west and northsouth corridors with easy access to job centers and residential communities. Mass transit options, including the Dallas Area Rapid Transit system, offer alternatives for getting around the region. The region’s robust interstate infrastructure provides easy links along the NAFTA corridor, linking Mexico to Canada and to East and West Coast destinations, making it an important intermodal center for the distribution of air, rail and truck freight. The nation’s two largest railroads, Fort Worth–based Burlington Northern Santa Fe Corp. and Union Pacific Corp., have major operation nodes in the region, offering businessefficient access to other key ports and distribution centers across the United States and into Mexico.

The Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) system, which includes light rail and bus service, is the nation’s fastest-growing network, enabling easy access to key job centers in Dallas and its suburbs. DART links to Dallas Fort Worth International Airport, providing convenient access. DART also interfaces with the Trinity Rail Express (TRE), a commuter train, to transport passengers between downtown Dallas and Fort Worth, with stops at several “mid-cities” suburbs in between. Fort Worth residents are served by the T, which also connects to the TRE. The A-Train operated by the Denton County Transit Authority (DCTA) connects DART riders in Carrollton to an additional fi ve stations ending in Denton.

MOBILITY 2035 Mobility 2035 ensures that North Texas commuters are going somewhere. Mobility 2035 is just one in a series of ongoing transportation plans implemented by the Regional Transportation Council (RTC) and the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG). Their comprehensive blueprint for the region’s multimodal mobility needs is designed to enhance how we travel both now and into 2035, when the population of North Texas is projected to swell from 6.9 million to 10 million. The benefits of investing in transportation are evident in every facet of the Mobility 2035 plan. And it’s not just about cars and roads. Rail, bike and pedestrian components are vital to increasing the region’s mobility and ensuring long-term sustainability. Improving efficiencies in both roadway and land use will reduce the burden on the region’s infrastructure and address quality of life concerns.

FUNDED RECOMMENDATIONS Mobility 2035 represents a $98.7 billion blueprint for the continued maintenance and development of the regional transportation system over the next 20 plus years. Mobility 2035 complies with all federal requirements related to the financial aspects of the metropolitan transportation plan. As the Dallas-Fort Worth region continues to grow, additional solutions will be imperative to comprehensively address the ever increasing transportation needs.

COMMUTING PATTERNS Getting around the Dallas–Fort Worth region is easy, thanks to a well-developed network of interstate freeways, state highways and tollways connecting job centers to fast-growing new communities. That’s good news for employers, allowing them to draw from a larger base of skilled workers. And it’s good for workers, allowing them to choose from a variety of affordable communities in which to live. In Dallas and Tarrant counties, the vast majority of workers live and work in the same county. Though these two counties also serve as the region’s biggest magnets for workers, the surrounding counties maintain strong job bases of their own to support the community.

DRIVE TIMES It’s common to work in one part of the Dallas-Fort Worth area and live in another. It’s only a matter of getting from point A to point B. More than 90 percent of people who commute to work here do so by car, truck, or van, which is easy, thanks to our well-developed network of interstate freeways, state highways and tollways connecting job centers to fast-growing new communities. The following maps— based on morning rush hour—give you an idea of how long you can expect it to take.

DALLAS FORT WORTH INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT AND DALLAS LOVE FIELD Dallas Fort Worth International Airport is an economic engine for the region, generating $16.6 billion in economic impact annually. Built in 1974, midway between Dallas and Fort Worth, it is the highest-capacity commercial airport in the world and one of two international gateway airports in Texas. As a major hub of Fort Worth–based American Airlines, DFW International Airport offers business travelers a highfrequency schedule and access to any major city in the continental United States in less than four hours. Cargo operations, which amounted to 732,568 metric tonnes in FY 2015, serve 21 major markets around the world, including several key markets in Asia. DFW Airport is currently upgrading its 4 original terminals with a $2.7 billion dollar ‘Terminal Renewal and Improvement Program’ (TRIP) and is expected to be completed in 2020. Located just seven miles from downtown Dallas, Dallas Love Field is a convenient general-use airport that serves as the headquarters for low-cost carrier Southwest Airlines. The airport, which served more than 14.5 million passengers in 2015, recently underwent a $519 million renovation, including a centralized terminal with 20 gates, a new lobby and an expanded baggage claim area.

NON-STOP FLIGHT TIMES FROM DALLAS-FORT WORTH

3:4

It’s common knowledge that the DallasFort Worth region is globally connected. DFW International is one of only fourteen airports in the world offering service to more than 200 destinations. Over a dozen new international routes have been added in the last three years with new destinations on the way. In the 10 years since Terminal D opened, DFW has added 10 new international carriers and 20 new international destinations. European destinations, such as Paris, London, Frankfurt, and Madrid; as well as South American cities like Bogata, Lima, Buenos Aires, and Quito are all within reach. In 2014, service was launched to Shanghai and Hong Kong by American Airlines, as well as to Doha by Qatar Airways, and to Abu Dhabi by Etihad Airways. Emirates Airline and Qantas Airways expanded their service from DFW to Dubai and Sydney, respectively, by adding the Airbus A380, the largest passenger aircraft in the world. And 2015 ushered in the beinning of American Airlines service to Beijing. The number of non-stop flights originating from DFW International Airport and Dallas Love Field provides travelers with options as well as convenience. The Wright Amendment, restricting flights from Dallas Love Field, was repealed in October 2014, providing the possibility of adding non-stop service to additional states, further strengthening and enhancing the region’s interconnectivity. New international routes, more carriers and increases in the air service destinations confirm DFW’s place as a global super hub.

REGIONAL POPULATION During the last decade, the Dallas–Fort Worth region was among the nation’s fastest-growing areas, attracting significant job and population growth. The population growth has fueled real estate development, as retailers and service providers expand to meet increasing demand. The growth has pushed Dallas and Fort Worth to redevelop and reenergize their downtowns, creating mixed-use buildings with residential, office and retail space and a high-end urban environment. While Dallas and Fort Worth serve as the biggest population centers, four other suburbs—Irving, Garland, Plano and Arlington—exceed 200,000, offering residents an abundance of choice as they search for the community that best fits their needs.

POPULATION DENSITY AND GROWTH While the majority of the population growth from 2000 to 2010 occurred in suburban communities, the urban core and the first-ring suburbs continue to show vibrancy and opportunity due to well-established neighborhoods and dense population concentrations. The Dallas–Fort Worth region is expected to grow to a population of 10.5 million people and employ more than 6.6 million by the year 2040. Growth is likely to occur in almost all parts of the region. Data presented on this map are compiled by traffic survey zone (TSZ), an aggregate of census blocks. Forecast estimates are produced by the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) and are the result of a combination of efforts. The first of these is an objective, deterministic model that uses factors such as inventory of vacant land and accessibility to allocate given levels of households and employment. The second is a subjective local review process whereby local entities are given an opportunity to review the model outputs and suggest adjustments. For this, local reviewers use their own expertise, experience and knowledge along with substantiating information such as adopted comprehensive plans and known development activity. It is important to note that both the objective and the subjective processes represent possible outcomes of future development activity. NCTCOG staff assess input submitted by local reviewers along with other data tracked by NCTCOG to complete the forecast estimates. These data were developed for regional planning activities and have not been evaluated for other uses. The North Central Texas Council of Governments makes no warranty, express or implied, including warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose. Responsibility for the use of these data lies solely with the user.

DEMOGRAPHICS Demographics in the Dallas–Fort Worth region are changing as the population diversifies. Just over 17% of the population is foreign-born, with Hispanics accounting for the largest minority group both in the region and in the state. With a growing immigrant population, the region’s workforce is relatively young and well educated. Over 60% of workers 25 years of age and older have at least some college education, with nearly a third holding a bachelor’s degree or another advanced degree.

DALLAS–FORT WORTH MARKET TAPESTRY For more than 30 years, companies, agencies and organizations have used segmentation to divide and group their consumer markets to more precisely target their best customers and prospects. This targeting method is superior to “scattershot” methods that might attract these preferred groups. Segmentation explains customer diversity, simplifies marketing campaigns, describes lifestyle and lifestage and incorporates a wide range of data. Segmentation systems operate on the theory that people with similar tastes, lifestyles and behaviors seek others with the same tastes—“like seeks like.” These behaviors can be measured, predicted and targeted.

MARKET TAPESTRY The market tapestry is a fascinating snapshot of lifestyle choices. Based on demography and geography, the main purpose of this type of data is targeted marketing efforts, but the high-level picture of types of neighborhoods and the people who live in them based on the activities and expenses of those people is a compelling story all on its own. Some segments develop as a result of age, some show up as a result of money and still others result from ethnic influence.

ESRI’s Tapestry Segmentation, shown on the map below, combines the “who” of lifestyle demography with the “where” of local neighborhood geography to create a model of various lifestyle classifications or segments of actual neighborhoods with addresses—distinct behavioral market segments. To create this map, U.S. residential areas are divided into 65 distinctive segments based on socioeconomic and demographic characteristics to provide an accurate, detailed description of U.S. neighborhoods. These segments are then grouped into the 12 Tapestry Segmentation LifeMode Summary Groups, which are characterized by lifestyle and lifestage and share an experience such as being born in the same time period or a trait such as affluence.

MIGRATION PATTERNS Domestic migration patterns can illustrate the flow of workers within the country. The reasons people relocate are numerous and can range from quality of life to employment prospects to overall business climate. The origins of people migrating to the Dallas–Fort Worth (DFW) area are evident through analysis of IRS data. Just as important are the places to which people are moving when they leave DFW. As illustrated here, people relocate to the DFW area from all parts of the country.

DEMOGRAPHIC METRO-TO-METRO COMPARISONS With regard to key demographics, Dallas– Fort Worth competes favorably with other world-class metropolitan areas across the United States, with a well-educated workforce. Its central location provides easy access to important markets on both coasts, without the higher prices and congestion of more traditional corporate markets such as Chicago, but with more depth than other fast-growing markets such as Denver or Phoenix. The region’s low cost of living means residents can enjoy a higher standard of living on a lower median household income than in many other large markets located on the East or West Coasts.

LABOR SUPPLY Employers in Dallas–Fort Worth draw from a well-educated and skilled workforce throughout the 13-county region. A robust network of interstate highways, state highways, and tollways makes it easy for workers to navigate the area, keeping commute times low for major employment centers surrounding the Dallas and Fort Worth city centers. The region’s relatively low cost of living means employers can tap into a strong workforce no matter where they base their operations. For employees, the wide distribution of jobs means that they are able to choose from a variety of communities in which to live and enjoy the lifestyle that best fits their needs—whether their preference is a well-established neighborhood, a new, fast-growing community, or a small town or rural setting—while maintaining a reasonable commute time.

Advanced services traditionally have meant headquarters, but also include financial, professional and technical services ranging from management consulting firms LOCATION QUOTIENT to business insurers, accountants, and legal services. Complex technologies and transnational operations have pushed most of the growth in advanced services activities into highly specialized firms and enterprises. This region has an exceptionally large number of these operations and is likely to continue to attract additional companies.

Historically, this region has leveraged its central geography with various transportation assets. Significant trade and distribution activity now comes to and through the DFW metro area by land, air, and rail with local intermodal facilities linking the three modes of transport. Looking ahead, as high value materials and products move from shipping vessels to airplanes, the region's place in international trade routes will become increasingly vital.

WAGES AND SALARIES Median wages and salaries in the Dallas– Fort Worth region generally track below national levels, thanks to Texas’ probusiness labor environment and low taxes. An abundance of affordable housing compared to major metropolitan areas means employees can still enjoy a high standard of living at lower costs than in other major markets.

UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE TAX RATE

LIFE, PHYSICAL & SOCIAL SCIENCE

HEALTH CARE SUPPORT

New employers who do not acquire an existing business start at a tax rate of 2.7%, or the NAICS industry average rate, whichever is higher. The employer will keep the entry level tax rate until the employer’s account is chargeable with claims for unemployment benefits for four complete quarters. After these conditions have been met, the effective tax rate is calculated as the sum of fi ve components multiplied by taxable wages. For 2016, the average tax rate is 1.46%.

OCCUPATION CLUSTERS The practice of identifying occupation clusters within a local economy is a relatively new approach to regional development. Similar to how industry clusters categorize businesses by what they produce, occupation clusters focus on grouping people with similar skill sets, abilities, and training levels. Analyzing where these clusters are located helps identify potential investment areas and assists businesses seeking specific labor talent.

The maps shown here represent a sample of occupation clusters within the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area. Each cluster is derived from a sample of occupations that fall within that category. For instance, the Finance cluster would include occupations related to Financial Services such as financial advisors, budget analysts, and loan officers. The Manufacturing and Distribution occupation clusters contain light manufacturing, material movers and assemblers, welders and other general distribution-related jobs. Those with hightech skill sets such as software developers, mechanical and electrical engineers, and computer system designers comprise the Engineering, IT and Software Developer clusters.

ECONOMIC METRO-TO-METRO COMPARISONS Companies examine many different variables when choosing the part of the country in which they wish to locate. The Dallas–Fort Worth metropolitan area excels when compared economically to other major metro areas around the country. The low unemployment rate, growing labor force and low cost of living make it a prime destination for companies of all sizes. The absence of a state corporate income tax in Texas and the affordable real estate costs in the DFW region are very attractive to companies wishing to minimize operational costs.

COST OF DOING BUSINESS

SEATTLE (103)

When it comes to doing business, you can’t get much more affordable than Dallas– Fort Worth in comparison to other major metropolitan areas. Thanks to Texas’ business-friendly tax approach, Dallas and Fort Worth both index well below other major U.S. business centers for state and local taxes. In terms of the largest corporate expenses—labor and rent—both Dallas and Fort Worth rank well below other major U.S. markets, making the region an attractive place to expand or relocate major operations.

CORPORATE BUSINESS CLIMATE COMPARISON

A GREAT PLACE TO DO BUSINESS

The Dallas area is home to a large and diverse array of corporate headquarters and for good reason. Our region has a tremendous set of assets that companies look for when choosing where to base. We have much to sell and our pitch is a good one, especially right now. The U.S. economy and corporations are resetting. The difficult business climates in California, Illinois and other key states are viewed in stark contrast to the operating environment in the Dallas area and in Texas. Leading corporate location magazines (Site Selection and Area Development) have noticed and have named Texas the Top State for doing business.

International Companies INTERNATIONAL COMPANIES

Dallas–Fort Worth is home to an impressive group of foreign-based subsidiaries, hosting North American headquarters or major operations. International corporate investment in the region reflects the strength and diversity of the DFW economy and stellar access to U.S. and global markets by ground or air, especially through Dallas Fort Worth International Airport. Industries represented here create their own synergies with other U.S.-based operations and headquarters in the region. For example, the global community has recognized DFW as an important U.S. center for telecommunications, locating North American headquarters that include Korea’s Samsung, China’s Huawei Technologies, France’s Alcatel-Lucent, and Sweden’s Ericsson Inc. The region also hosts the headquarters of Switzerland-based contact lens manufacturer Novartis AG-owned Alcon and France’s Essilor of America, as well as the North American headquarters for motor vehicle manufacturers like Japan’s Toyota and Kubota, and China’s Hisun.

The Dallas Regional Chamber works closely with many companies that consider and decide to locate major corporate facilities here, particularly headquarters. Our team knows these decisions are critical to the futures of the companies and the employees. We help companies understand this region fully; from our demographics, labor costs, our transportation assets, our real estate options, or the taxes and incentives that might apply to a project. Often we do it face to face. We visit companies and host executives here; including multi-day visits during which we often engage Dallas area business and civic leaders or subject matter experts with the candidate company team to achieve the peer-to-peer conversations that are so meaningful in selling Dallas. But we’re not just about the cold, hard facts and the sales pitch. We are also about taking good care of the companies and particularly the employees, that make the decision to move here. Corporate moves often impact hundreds, even thousands, of employees and families. Those employees have lots of questions and each family situation is different. For all major corporate relocations, the Chamber offers to meet with employees and families that suddenly have the opportunity to be new Texans. We have held several “town hall” meetings with company employees around the U.S., sharing information and our experiences of living in the Dallas area. Our goal is to help the employees understand our region is a great place to live, raise a family and prosper. Eyes light up when we show pictures of homes and affordable prices, the arts and cultural amenities, our parks and trees and lakes, our foodie places, the outstanding medical care that is here, dog parks, light rail and bike trails and the many facts and anecdotes that help them realize that DFW is a more robust, culturally and socially diverse place than they thought. And those that already know our area well or might be from here just get more excited about the move. Helping employees after a move has been announced is a great benefit to the company and its employees. It’s a lot of fun and very meaningful for the Chamber’s economic development team and an important part of the Dallas Regional Chamber’s corporate recruitment platform.

ADVANCED SERVICES Advanced services traditionally have meant headquarters, but also include financial, professional and technical services ranging from management consulting firms to business insurers, accountants and legal services. Complex technologies and transnational operations have pushed most of the growth in advanced service activities into highly specialized firms and enterprises. This region has an exceptionally large number of these operations and is likely to continue to attract additional companies.

MANUFACTURING The Dallas–Fort Worth region is often associated with major headquarters, logistics, distribution and supply chain operations. But did you know that the manufacturing industry makes up nearly 10% of the regional economy? DFW has more manufacturing activity than any other metro area in Texas. The size and scope of operations here create a diverse manufacturing landscape across many sectors.

LOGISTICS Dallas–Fort Worth’s central U.S. location provides an advantageous distribution hub, with quick access to rail, air, and over-the-ground truck transportation. The region is a global inland port with two airports capable of large-scale cargo operations, Dallas Fort Worth International and Fort Worth Alliance. Major rail logistics hub operations for the two primary western U.S. railroads, Fort Worth–based Burlington Northern Santa Fe Corp. and Union Pacific Corp., tap into major eastwest arteries and provide important links to Mexican markets. By truck, distributors can efficiently move products throughout the central part of the United States, reaching 93 percent of the population within 48 hours.

ALLIANCE GLOBAL LOGISTICS HUB The 9,600-acre Alliance Global Logistics Hub is the nation’s premier inland port offering multi-modal transportation options, economic advantages and supply chain services. > Fort Worth Alliance Airport (AFW) – A 100% industrial airport anchored by FedEx

> Interstate Highway 35W connects from Mexico to Canada > Foreign-Trade Zone No. 196 > U.S. Customs and Border Protection

INCENTIVES FOREIGN-TRADE ZONES (FTZs) provide duty-free or deferred payment of goods processed at plants engaged in international trade. The DFW area currently has four FTZs. Under a new approval, the six-county DFW area (Dallas, Tarrant, Collin, Denton, Grayson and Rockwall counties) has been preapproved by the federal government as eligible foreigntrade zone property. With the agreement of local officials, the federal government will provide any eligible business with a foreigntrade zone designation on an expedited and simplified basis. Company-specific FTZ’s sponsored by DFW Airport include: GM, Sanden, Fossil Partners, Zale, Turbomeca U.S.A., Dal-Tile, The Apparel Group, Matrix Network, Brighton Best International, Lasko and BMW. FREEPORT TAX EXEMPTIONS allow local governing bodies the option to exempt personal property consisting of goods, wares, merchandise or ores other than oil, natural gas and petroleum. Eligible property must be transported out of the state within 175 days of acquisition, but may be assembled, stored, manufactured, processed or fabricated locally. Triple Freeport zones are exempt from city, county and school district property taxes on inventory.

TELECOMMUNICATIONS

THE DFW AREA IS A CRUCIAL U.S. CENTER FOR TELECOMMUNICATIONS FIRMS

PHOTO: CITY OF RICHARDSON

Dallas–Fort Worth is a crucial U.S. center for telecommunications firms. The bulk of them are located along the “Telecom Corridor” that stretches north of downtown Dallas through its suburbs of Richardson and Plano. The industry’s biggest names call the DFW region home, among them the global headquarters for the Fortune 100 ranked AT&T, and the North American headquarters for Ericsson, Inc., Alcatel-Lucent and Samsung Telecommunications America. New York–based Verizon Communications maintains a major business unit here employing some 14,000 workers in the area.

CROSSROADS OF COMMUNICATIONS

THE TELECOM CORRIDOR Located 15 miles north of downtown Dallas, the Telecom Corridor encompasses approximately 30 square miles and includes the city of Richardson along with the Texas Instruments campus and the west side of Waterview Parkway near the University of Texas at Dallas campus. The Telecom Corridor area is one of the most significant and unique high-tech business concentrations in the United States. Various telecommunications industries are represented in the area, including:

CONNECTING TO THE WORLD

DATA CENTERS Dallas–Fort Worth is located in a near-perfect geographic region for IT hosting and data center operation from the Central Time Zone: the workday is extended for companies operating on both coasts. DFW’s temperate climate and low risk of natural disaster help minimize construction and operation costs. It’s no coincidence that Dallas–Fort Worth is considered a major Internet “peering point.” Both speed and reliability are important for any IT operation, and high-speed fiber connectivity is plentiful in the area. Compared to other peering-point cities, DFW has some of the lowest power rates for large industrial users.

OFFICE CLUSTERS Office space is concentrated in key areas, including downtown Dallas and Fort Worth, along the Interstate 35-E, North Central Expressway and Dallas North Tollway corridors between downtown Dallas and its northern suburbs, and in Irving’s Las Colinas master-planned development. The Dallas–Fort Worth office market slowed with the economic recession, but like many other parts of the regional economy, didn’t reach the depths of market weakness experienced in other major U.S. metropolitan areas. As a result, the market has recovered more quickly than elsewhere in the nation.

INDUSTRIAL CLUSTERS Industrial space is distributed throughout the Dallas–Fort Worth region, with concentrations in Fort Worth’s Alliance Texas development, Dallas Fort Worth International Airport, Arlington, Garland, Grand Prairie, Coppell and along the Interstate 35-E corridor between Dallas and Lewisville. The market for industrial space has strengthened over the past couple of years with significant new developments throughout the region. Market watchers credit the strength of the regional economy, its low taxes and its low labor costs for sustaining DFW as a desirable market for real estate investment.

RATES AND INFRASTRUCTURE WITHIN DFW WATER AND SEWER PRICE PER 1,000 GALLONS

Dallas–Fort Worth is expected to continue growing at a rapid rate. In order to keep up with projected demands for utilities, the region’s leaders have made it a priority to secure reliable sources of water and gas. The area’s many lakes and the abundant natural gas reserves located in the geologic formation known as the Barnett Shale ensure that DFW will have available access to these resources in the decades to come. The centralized location on a major telecommunications hub allows for multiple levels of connectivity to exist in the region. Dallas–Fort Worth makes up a larger information and communications hub that spans the globe. The redundancy in connectivity that this affords translates to minimal risk of downtime for any business operating in the vicinity.

ELECTRICITY The Dallasâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Fort Worth region ranks close to the national median in terms of overall electric rates. Reliability in the system is preserved by operating on a separate power grid from that of the rest of the country. The Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) manages the flow of electric power to 22 million Texas customers. Since Texas has a deregulated electricity market consumers can shop around and choose their service providers giving them flexibility in pricing and service.

The 2015 National Rate Survey compares winter rates in effect January 1, 2015 for 106 U.S. cities. Twelve usage levels broken into two residential and ten commercial and industrial categories are surveyed. Average bills are calculated using rates from a 12-month period which include seasonal rates. All bill data applies to one month of service.

Average residential bills were calculated by kilowatt-hour (kWh) usage levels. Average commericial and industrial bills were stratified by kilowatt (kW) and kilowatt-hour (kWh). The categories used in the ranking are as follows: RESIDENTIAL:

Rising business costs and constrictive regulatory environments raise the risks and costs to a business. Stability of the political, economic and legal systems is vital for success. The tax burdens and labor requirements imposed on businesses create barriers to market entry and real estate development. Texas is a low-tax, business-friendly state attracting large numbers of companies from all over the United States and globally due to the low cost of doing business. As a “right-towork” state, Texas places high in favorable tax climate rankings while the Dallas–Fort Worth metro area exhibits extremely low union activity.

STATE AND LOCAL INCENTIVES Dallas–Fort Worth has a strong business culture, and a variety of state and local incentive programs are available to expanding or relocating businesses, ranging from tax abatements and tax increment financing to development of infrastructure and free-trade zones. The programs help keep the cost of doing business low, enabling companies that are creating jobs in the DFW region to gain a competitive advantage. Locally, several programs exempt qualifying companies from certain taxes, in some cases for up to 10 years. Programs vary by city, but they offer a breadth that can provide value for a variety of projects. Additional statewide programs assist companies with job training, obtaining capital and expanding venture capital investment.

DEVELOPING AREAS THE COUNTY DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT SALES TAX: Enables counties of less than 400,000 residents to create county assistance districts and adopt local sales taxes. Eligible counties must not contain a 4A or 4B city or any transit authority territory. TEXAS CAPITAL FUND: Programs within this fund provide financial resources to non-entitlement communities for public infrastructure or for real estate development needed to assist a business that commits to creating and/or retaining permanent jobs, primarily for low and moderate-income persons. The maximum award is $750,000, and may not exceed 50 percent of the total project cost. THE RURAL MUNICIPAL FINANCE PROGRAM Assists in the economic development of rural areas. Eligible applicants include city and county governments, economic development corporations, hospital districts, rail districts, utility districts, special districts, agricultural districts and private water and wastewater corporations.

LOCAL INCENTIVES FREEPORT EXEMPTION: Property tax exemption offered by cities, school districts, and counties, or all three. It applies to various types of property detained in Texas for no more than 175 days, to be transported out of state. Goods must be in Texas for assembling, storing, manufacturing, repair, maintenance, processing, or fabricating purposes. ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT ACT (CHAPTER 313): An appraised value limitation may be extended to a taxpayer who agrees to build or install property and create jobs in exchange for an eight-year limitation on the taxable value of the property. The value limitation applies to the local school district maintenance and operations tax (M&O) portion of the property tax and a tax credit. Projects must be located in a reinvestment zone or enterprise zone. TAX INCREMENT FINANCING DISTRICT: A tool that local governments can use to publicly finance needed improvements to infrastructure and buildings within a designated area known as a reinvestment zone. The cost of improvements to the reinvestment zone is repaid by the future tax revenues of each taxing unit that levies taxes against the property. TAX ABATEMENTS: A local agreement between a taxpayer and a taxing unit that exempts all or part of the increase in the value of the real property and/or tangible personal property from taxation for a period not to exceed 10 years. CHAPTER 380/381 AGREEMENTS: Allow municipalities and counties to offer grants and loans for economic development, or a variety of other economic incentives. TYPE A AND B ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT CORPORATIONS: Cities located within a county of fewer than 500,000 residents can form economic development corporations and institute a sales tax, if the new combined tax doesn’t exceed 2 percent. Some cities in more populated counties may also participate under certain conditions. Type A is generally for industrial and manufacturing, while Type B is for qualityof-life projects. Voters must approve the creation of a Type A or Type B tax.

STATE INCENTIVES TEXAS ENTERPRISE FUND: TEF is the largest “deal-closing” fund of its kind in the nation. The fund is a cash grant used as a financial incentive tool for projects that offer significant projected job creation and capital investment where a single Texas site is competing with another viable out-of-state option for relocation or expansion. Funds can be used for infrastructure development, community development, job training, and business incentives. MANUFACTURING EXEMPTIONS: Exemption from state sales-and-use tax for taxpayers who manufacture, fabricate, or process tangible property for sale. It generally applies to tangible personal property involved in the manufacturing process. NATURAL GAS AND ELECTRICITY: Manufacturing companies may be exempt from paying state salesand-use tax on electricity and natural gas used in manufacturing, processing, or fabricating tangible personal property. DATA CENTER INCENTIVES: This new incentive allows data centers that meet certain conditions on or after Sept. 1, 2013, to qualify for an exemption on state sales-and-use tax on certain items necessary and essential to the data center operation. RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT: Companies can choose a state sales tax exemption for property purchased, stored, or used by a person engaged in qualified research or a franchise tax credit. Local communities can also consider providing a sales tax exemption for R&D using tools such as a Chapter 380 agreement. SKILLS DEVELOPMENT FUND: Assists with customized job training. Businesses and trade unions must partner with a community or technical college, the Texas Engineering Extension Service or a community-based organization working with one of these establishments. Businesses should have a training plan and pay wages that are equal to or greater than current wages in the local market. Grants for a single business may be limited to $500,000. GOVERNOR’S UNIVERSITY RESEARCH INITIATIVE (GURI): GURI was enacted in 2015 with a goal of bringing the best and brightest distinguished researchers in the world to Texas. This matching grant program will enable eligible Texas academic institutions to build expertise in key research areas; attract and inspire students to pursue advanced degrees in math, science, engineering, and medicine; and foster innovation and commercialization in the State.

HOUSING COSTS Based on the cost of housing compared to median family income, home prices in the DFW region are some of the most affordable in the country according to the Urban Institute. Stability characterizes the DFW housing market. Its ability to remain strong during global economic fluctuations has been sustained through a combination of a lower cost of living compared with other major metropolitan areas and a diverse economic base that has kept unemployment figures well below national levels. The bottom line for families is that a dollar buys more square feet per home in DFW. The ease of travel between smaller cities and major job centers means that employees can choose from a wide variety of communities and neighborhoods to accommodate their lifestyles and price points.

The Dallas and Fort Worth areas boast convenience and charm in lifestyle and housing opportunities. Whether you are a temporary business traveler or a family of five, the region offers diverse housing options for individuals and families of all sizes.

Established neighborhoods with abundant choices of single-family homes abound. Or, for a more relaxed small-town feel, neighboring communities provide homegrown pride mixed with big-city conveniences and friendly neighbors. Dallas and Fort Worth offer unique options perfect for any size family. Whatever your style, Dallasâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Fort Worth has the home for you.

APARTMENT COSTS Apartment dwelling in the DFW area depends on your preferences. All types and sizes are found throughout our region. Communities range from traditional apartment complexes to luxury high-rise buildings to large-scale communities with every bell and whistle imaginable (including someone who will come and change a blown light bulb!). Some newer apartment communities offer amenities such as dog runs, workout facilities, tanning services and community activities ranging from movies on the lawn to wine tastings to Monday Night Football parties. In recent years, mixed-use communities— which include not only multiple apartment buildings, but also restaurants, shops, movie theaters and underground parking—have popped up all over, appealing to a segment of people who desire an urban, walkable neighborhood experience without the responsibilities of homeownership.

SCHOOL DISTRICTS School districts in the Dallas–Fort Worth region are locally administered and independent of each other. District lines generally relate to city boundaries, but are not exclusive to them. For example, the Richardson ISD includes students in Richardson and parts of Dallas and Garland. The Dallas Independent School District—or Dallas ISD, as it is known locally—is the region’s largest school district, with more than 160,000 students and a nationally recognized magnet program. Students attending Dallas ISD schools live in Addison, Balch Springs, Carrollton, Cockrell Hill, Dallas, Farmers Branch, Garland, Highland Park, Hutchins, Mesquite, Seagoville, University Park and Wilmer. Since 2007, the district has more than quadrupled the number of schools receiving an Exemplary rating, the state’s highest rating. In Tarrant County, the Fort Worth ISD dominates, with over 85,000 students. Dallas ISD hosts 15 magnet schools, including several that have been nationally recognized. Its Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts is located in the heart of the Dallas Arts District and includes several internationally known artists among its alumni. The arts magnet, along with the School for the Talented and Gifted and the School of Science and Engineering at Yvonne A. Ewell Townview Center in Dallas, were recognized as among the best high schools in the nation by U.S. News and World Report. Other area schools recognized by U.S. News include Highland Park High School, Fort Worth Academy of Fine Arts, Uplift Academy, and Harmony charter schools. In 2015, twenty-eight area high schools received 7 of 7 available distinctions from the Texas Education Agency, and 5 area schools were recognized as Blue Ribbon Schools, a national honor awarded to schools that have achieved academic excellence or made significant progress in closing the achievement gap.

CHOOSING A DISTRICT You have lots of choices for schooling in the Dallas area: public, public charter, private or parochial, or home schooling. Should you want to send your kids to public school, rest assured that the Dallas-Fort Worth area has many fine public schools. In Texas, public school districts operate independently and are governed by locally elected school boards that locally implement state guidelines through a selection of instructional programs, curriculum and local expectations that often exceed state minimums. Local districts are governed by an independently elected school board of trustees that hires a superintendent as CEO; sets a district philosophy (vision and mission) and local policies; selects a curriculum within the state guidelines; and sets the local ISD tax rate, budget and district boundaries. Here’s what you need to consider in finding the right school district for you.

DISTRICT CHARACTERISTICS Each district has a unique profile. Visiting district websites and reading the expanded district profiles at mydallasmove.com will reveal their distinct features and offerings.

> Gifted and talented > Performing arts > Special education CHARTER SCHOOLS In 1995, the 74th Texas Legislature passed legislation giving the state the authority to create open-enrollment charter schools. These schools are subject to fewer state laws than other public schools with the idea of ensuring fiscal and academic accountability without undue regulation of instructional methods or pedagogical innovation. Like school districts, charter schools are monitored and accredited under the statewide testing and accountability system.

RESEARCHING SCHOOLS

families who want students to attend a traditional school and supplement with cultural and language immersion. > Montessori method – This is a childcentered educational approach based on scientific observations of children from birth to adulthood. Schools incorporating this self-direction and discovery method are located across the region, but they generally do not extend beyond elementary. A number of public districts also have a Montessori choice option within the district.

> Classical – These schools are usually characterized by small class sizes and a classics-based education, normally with fewer team athletic options. > College preparatory – Prep schools focus on academic rigor in preparation for demanding collegiate programs. > Religious/parochial – Some schools are associated with specific religious denominations or churches and incorporate religious teaching as part of the curriculum.

Dallas-Fort Worth has not one but two major arts districts. The Dallas Arts District, which is anchored by the Dallas Museum of Art, Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center, and AT&T Performing Arts Center, is nearly 70 acres—the largest urban arts district in the country. Here you can catch a performance of Texas Ballet Theater, a Broadway touring production, classical or local musicians, a night of live storytelling, TED talks, movies and music under the stars, festivals, art exhibits, and so much more. We’d be willing to bet you could spend every weekend in our Arts District and never run out of new things to do. The Fort Worth Cultural District claims fi ve internationally recognized museums, including the Kimbell Art Museum, the Amon Carter Museum of American Art, and The Modern. Beyond our fantastic cultural centers, DFW is home to hundreds of smaller museums and public galleries; scores of professional and community theaters; and dozens of local symphony and chamber orchestras, dance troupes, and opera associations. DFW is Texas’ most arts intensive metro area on a per capita basis—meaning we spend a lot of money per person on cultural arts. No matter what artistic pursuits you enjoy, you can find them here.

Walking, running, hiking, and biking are popular here, and we’ve got plenty of places to explore outdoors. The city of Dallas has more than 100 miles of hike and bike trails—and outside the city, where urban life gives way to more pastoral pursuits, you’ll find so many more. The Katy, Santa Fe, and White Rock trails are lovely paved paths, but if a walk (or ride) in the woods is more to your liking, it’s only a matter of effort. Certified Master Naturalist Bill Holston recommends Cedar Ridge Preserve in South Dallas for its wooded hills and wildlife; Dogwood Canyon in Cedar Hill for its hilly terrain and flowering trees in spring; and Oak Point Park and Nature Preserve in Plano for its creeks, ponds, and easy-to-follow routes.

TRAFFIC COUNTS Traffic counts are often essential elements of any site selection process. Retailers, in particular, use traffic counts to establish their operations in highly visible and easily accessible locations. In DFW, I-635, I-35 and Highway 75 are some of the most traveled major roads in the region. Heavy arterial traffic is often centered around major centers of retail activity and along corridors that connect the region’s business centers. Preston Road in Collin County, Collins and Cooper Roads in Arlington and Northwest Highway in Dallas are just a few examples around the region.

DAILY TRAFFIC COUNTS

Traffic counts are provided by the Texas Department of Transportation and local municipalities and compiled by the North Central Texas Council of Governments. Data represent 24-hour counts on various dates and years.

A comprehensive development agreement (CDA) is a tool TxDOT uses to enable private development by sharing the risks and responsibilities of design and construction.

Transportation is essential to Texas’ future. The movement of goods and people in an efficient manner ensures that the economy remains competitive and economically prosperous. North Texas continues to experience tremendous population growth, and this places increased demand on the region’s transportation infrastructure. Billions of dollars are being invested to maintain existing infrastructure, prevent congestion, and ensure mobility and safety by relieving chokepoints and expanding critical corridors. Dozens of projects are currently under construction with many more planned for the future.

SIGNIFICANT PROJECTS The Dallas–Fort Worth region is well-known for taking on very large construction projects. They range from civic projects such as the expansion of Interstate 35 and construction of a new Parkland hospital to office buildings and mixed-use developments to parks and recreation development. No matter where you travel in North Texas, large-scale construction projects are underway to improve the area’s quality of life.

THE HORSESHOE PROJECT & 1 MARGARET McDERMOTT BRIDGE A $798 million design-build roadway construction project to improve traffic flow through the heart of downtown Dallas. Dubbed the “Horseshoe Project” due to its U shape, construction improvements include the expansion, repaving and addition of several new bridges and roadways along Interstates 30 and 35E; and the construction of a new signature bridge, the Margaret McDermott Bridge, over I-30. Completion is scheduled for summer 2017.

PARK CITIES AND VICINITY Contained within the boundaries of the city of Dallas, the cities of Highland Park and University Park are minutes from downtown Dallas and the uptown Dallas area. The Park Cities maintain their own governance, city services and schools. Located north of downtown Dallas, the Park Cities are linked via the North Dallas Tollway and Northwest Highway. Within University Park lies Southern Methodist University, with its well-respected Cox School of Business and Dedman School of Law. Adjacent to the Park Cities is a major hospital complex, including UT Southwestern Medical Center, Presbyterian Hospital, Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Medical Center, Parkland Health and Hospital System and Texas Scottish Rite Hospital. The area includes Dallas Love Field, which hosts the headquarters of Fortune 500 firms Southwest Airlines. Highland Park is home to the historic Highland Park Village, a high-end retail center that was built in 1931, the first planned shopping center of its kind in the U.S. Highland Park was designed by Wilbur David Cook, the same planner who laid out Beverly Hills, California. The name was derived from the fact that the area sits at a higher elevation than Dallas and from plans of the city founders to set aside 20 percent of area land for parks.

FORT WORTH AND VICINITY K Y

The city of Fort Worth is the 16th largest city in the United States. Fort Worth and Tarrant County was one of the fastest growing areas in the U.S. in the past decade. It is continually recognized by Money, Fortune and other magazines as one of the “Best Places to Live and Work.” Growth in companies like Lockheed Martin, Texas Health Resources and Fidelity, combined with the economic impact of natural gas drilling in the Barnett Shale, helped limit the impact of the recession on the DFW region. The Alliance area in north Fort Worth serves as a major intermodal distribution center for many large companies. This area has been the catalyst for the most recent growth. Several companies call Fort Worth home, including American Airlines, Pier 1 Imports, XTO Energy and BNSF Railway. Other companies in the area include Justin Brands, FedEx, Ben E. Keith and Williamson Dickie. Health care, finance, telecommunications, education, tourism, retail trade and services are also significant economic sectors for the area. Fort Worth also has numerous cultural and entertainment attractions, including the nationally ranked Fort Worth Zoo, a world-class museum district, the Bass Performance Hall, the Historic Stockyards District, Sundance Square and the Texas Motor Speedway.
