CITY OF CEDAR HILL ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT • 972.291.5132 • CEDARHILLEDC.COM


DALLAS REGIONAL CHAMBER | WELCOME 10

WELCOME There’s no better time to be considering a move to the Dallas Region. Whether you’re thinking about relocating your company or your family here, or looking for a place to start or continue DALE PETROSKEY President and Chief your career, the Dallas Executive Officer Region should be at the Dallas Regional Chamber top of your list. Here are a few reasons why. Our economy is booming and our business community is thriving. Since 2010, the Dallas Region has added more than one million new residents—growth fueled by the addition of more than 120 corporate headquarters relocations, hundreds of local company expansions, and the creation of more than 800,000 new jobs. In 2018, the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area was the number one market in the entire nation in for job creation. Put another way, there were 45 other states that didn’t create as many jobs as were created in our local region last year. That’s an astounding fact. We also provide a home to 24 Fortune 500 companies, including two new relocations from the Bay Area, McKesson and Core-Mark, that announced they are joining our fold in 2018. CoreMark selected the Westlake community, and McKesson is moving to Irving, the “Headquarters of Headquarters”. Dallas-Fort Worth is the only market in the country with this claim – ExxonMobil (3), McKesson (6) and AT&T (9) are all Fortune 10 companies. No other market in the country has more than one—and we have three. We’re also quite literally in the middle of things—the Dallas Region is among the U.S.’s prime central locations — serving as a major hub for rail, freight, air, and highway traffic. And as anyone who lives here knows firsthand, we offer a welcoming environment for all and a great quality of life in one of the most prosperous, dynamic, and affordable markets in the country. The fact is that the Dallas Region has become a magnet for companies and people seeking good jobs, good lives, and prosperous futures. And what a magnet. Our region has grown to be the fourth largest metro area in the nation, with about 7.4 million people living in the cities and suburbs in and between Dallas and Fort Worth.

D A L L A S ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT G U I D E

A LETTER FROM THE DALLAS REGIONAL CHAMBER

The Dallas Region has evolved into a thriving, growing, diverse metropolitan area. This has not happened by accident or by coincidence. Aside from our prime geographic location, business and community leaders have united in a common mission, working steadily and strategically to make our city and our state a great place to live, work, and to do business. We’ve kept Texas an income-tax-free state, allowing individuals and companies to pursue their goals in a business-friendly and low-regulation environment, and to create and grow a world-class workforce. The Dallas Regional Chamber is proud to serve as the voice of business and the champion for economic growth and development in this region. We are the single point of contact for companies, site-selection firms, and corporate real estate professionals who are considering moving here. We also understand that with this growth comes the responsibility to make sure we have a workforce prepared for the jobs of tomorrow. So, we work hard every day to improve education at all levels to strengthen our talent pipeline of homegrown students and workers. We also work to help attract the best and brightest workers from around the world while retaining the talent already studying and working here. Between 2012 and 2016, Dallas attracted an average of nearly 50,000 young degreeholders, per year, according to an analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data. Our goal is to let highly skilled workers know about the great quality of life we enjoy here, and that it’s a great place for career advancement and to live and raise a family. The foundation of our success is our tireless work in public policy to affect positive change for the business climate and quality of life for our citizens and employees. Nothing is more important to us than opening up opportunities for innovative business pursuits and opportunities for people to grow and become successful. We are making strong and steady progress towards our goals, and the Dallas Region remains a shining example to the rest of the country for business opportunities, corporate relocations, and job growth. Thank you for joining us as we continue our mission to make the Dallas Region the best place in America to live, work, and do business.

BUILDING TOMORROW TOGETHER The Dallas Regional Chamber’s fi ve-year strategic plan is designed to build on recent successes, while addressing new challenges and taking advantage of new opportunities. The DRC is deeply invested in strengthening the region and its vibrant business community. Our fi ve-year strategic plan, Building Tomorrow Together, is based on three core priorities: Increasing economic growth, creating the best possible quality of life to attract the best and brightest workers from around the world, and strengthening the local talent pipeline for all students from pre-K through higher education. We work with hundreds of member companies and regional partners to advocate for pro-growth public policies that will achieve these priorities and strategically manage our region’s continued growth. Through our work in economic development and public policy, Dallas-Fort Worth has become a shining example to the country for business opportunities, corporate relocations, and job growth. With our momentum strong and a plan to build on our recent success in the years ahead, there is no better time to join the DRC.

JOIN THE DRC DallasChamber.org/Join

ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT In partnership with our regional allies, the DRC will continue its work to attract companies to move here and create new jobs. With an increased focus on international opportunities, we will work to raise our region’s international profile, and we will continue to help drive a burgeoning culture of innovation and entrepreneurship.

TALENT ATTRACTION The Dallas Regional Chamber created a new Talent Attraction department to lead a national marketing and outreach campaign to showcase Dallas as a great place to start or continue a career, to raise a family, and to experience a high quality of life in one of the most vibrant and affordable markets in the nation.

TALENT ATTRACTION

EDUCATION & WORKFORCE The interests of local students and the business community are directly aligned: Improving educational outcomes for local students creates better career options for them. The DRC works to improve education at all levels—early childhood, K-12, and higher education—so every student has a better opportunity to find a good job that leads to a good life.

PUBLIC POLICY Public Policy is the foundation of all we do at the DRC. We work with our member companies and regional partners to strengthen our business community by advocating for pro-growth public policies, improving the educational system at every level, and creating a high quality of life to attract and retain the best and brightest workers from around the world. Our goal is to make Dallas the best place in America to live, work, and do business.

THE DALLAS– FORT WORTH REGION The Dallas Regional Chamber welcomes you and your company to the Dallas-Fort Worth region. This region is an innovation hub with a wealth of resources that make it an ideal business location. The DFW region’s attractive quality of life, strong regional and state economy, low cost of living, skilled labor force, pro-business mindset, and absence of corporate and personal income taxes all contribute to the thriving Dallas-Fort Worth location. Forward-looking company leadership seeking a friendly and profitable place to do business has discovered in the region the attributes they have been seeking. Due to its central location and worldclass transportation infrastructure, Dallas-Fort Worth is a major international gateway. DFW excels in passenger air travel and air cargo operations. The region is home to: • Dallas Fort Worth International Airport, the nation’s fourth-busiest airport; • Dallas Love Field Airport, home to Southwest Airlines, the largest domestic airline in the country; and • Fort Worth Alliance Airport, the world’s first major industrial airport, home to newly announced Amazon Air hub. Additionally, DFW’s roads and rail lines are remarkable for the volume and delivery speed they provide for transporting freight products across the country. Equally important is the regionally supported agreement to prove up tomorrow’s transit disruptors. Our region ranks among the top three U.S. metropolitan areas for business expansions, relocations, and employment growth. The 4.0 million-person workforce is being bolstered by an influx of young, credentialed and talented professionals, providing companies with an abundance of options in skill level they need to make their businesses a success. Texas’ business climate, combined with the attributes and functionality that Dallas-Fort Worth 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 decades into the future. 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 DALLAS FORT WORTH INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, MAJOR HIGHWAYS, AND RAIL

LOCATION Perhaps you’ve heard the phrase “Everything is bigger in Texas?” That includes the Dallas-Fort Worth region, which has a combined footprint larger than some U.S. states. Dallas–Fort Worth is the nation’s CLAY fourth-largest metro area, conveniently JACK positioned in the middle of the United States, and offering competitive 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, DFW’s midcontinent situation means time savings when it comes to travel. All major U.S. cities are less than four hours away.

Dallas-Fort Worth’s vast transportation infrastructure connects residents and businesses. The freeway system provides east-west and north-south corridors with easy access to job centers and residential communities. Mass transit options, including the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) system, the Fort Worth T, Trinity Railway Express (TRE), the Denton County Transit Authority’s (DCTA) A Train, and the newly launched intermodal TEXRail offer alternatives to cars for getting around the region. The region’s robust interstate infrastructure provides easy links along the North American Free Trade Agreement (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 and Union Pacific have major operation nodes in the region, offering business-efficient access to other key ports and distribution centers across the United States and into Mexico. Dallas-Fort Worth also is the destination for some of the nation’s most innovative projects discussed on the FUTURE MOBILITY page in this section.

FUTURE MOBILITY The Dallas Region is on the cutting edge of some of the world’s most innovative transportation solutions. These technologies will allow DFW to remain one of the least-congested major cities in the world, as noted by the TomTom Traffic Index, now and far into the future. From deployment of tested and trusted high-speed rail technology, to design and testing of options straight out of science fiction like the hyperloop and fl ying taxis, Dallas continues to seek out more efficient, effective and sustainable transportation options for its residents and workers.

HIGH-SPEED RAIL

Dallas is leading all domestic metros in the development of the first truly high-speed rail in the U.S. Texas Central Partners is building a 186-mph Dallas-Houston train line that will cut the current commute time from three to four hours by car to only 90 minutes, about the same duration as air travel. This project—expected to begin operations in 2023—will spur multi-modal rail-station development and is predicted to boost transit ridership, car-sharing, and other transportation opportunities in both metros.

AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES

DFW is home to the nation’s first autonomous municipal public shuttle, EasyMile, which connected crowds to public entertainment venues, including Six Flags Over Texas, AT&T Stadium, and Globe Life Park in Arlington. That service retired in the fall of 2018 and has been replaced by three free, self-driving Drive.AI vans, which operate on the streets of Arlington from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. five days per week. Drive.AI has also partnered with the City of Frisco, where it operates a fully functioning on-demand autonomous vehicle shuttle near Hall Park and The Star. Meanwhile, local startup Vinli is advancing connected automobile technology that will lead to safer roadways in the near future. AT&T and Verizon have both begun wide-scale 5G technology deployment, a critical element for connecting vehicles of all types to one another and to the infrastructure that supports them.

UBER ELEVATE, VERTIPORTS, DRONE DELIVERIES

Uber is working with Fort Worth-based Bell Helicopter and Dallas-based Hillwood to accelerate the eventual large-scale deployment of electric vertical takeoff and landing vehicles (VTOLs)—the air taxi. DFW is one of a handful of test markets. The first test route between Frisco’s The Star and Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport will lay the path for making DFW a world leader in air taxi service. With the development of new vertiports, drone deliveries will also be possible. Already, the FAA has granted the University of Texas at Arlington a Certificate of Authorization (COA) to fly in the airspace around their Riverbend Campus, giving researchers and affiliated faculty a unique venue for advancing the technology.

VIRGIN HYPERLOOP ONE

Virgin Hyperloop One recently announced 10 global finalists for the development of a new hyperloop route, and Texas was included in that list. In the Hyperloop Texas proposal, the tube infrastructure will be elevated along a 640-mile route, connecting Dallas-Fort Worth, Austin, Houston, San Antonio, and Laredo. Not only will this technology provide mind-blowing travel time savings, but will also open up the enormous potential to move cargo efficiently and quickly from port to market. The Dallas office of AECOM is leading the effort on behalf of Texas.

2019

Hyperloops, bullet trains, and even flying taxis won’t solve the persistent quandary of last-mile travel. Fortunately, the number of these often overlooked travel options continues to expand in Dallas. In December 2018, roughly 2,000 UBER-owned Jump electric bikes were permitted for the streets of Dallas, along with 2,000 Jump electric scooters. They join thousands of electric scooters already deployed in Dallas by Lime, Bird, and Razor. As of February 2019, there were more than 2,300 Lime electric scooters on Dallas streets, more than 300 Bird scooters, and nearly 600 Jump scooters, according to the City of Dallas. Razor electric scooters were in the process of redeploying at the time of the city survey. These vehicles mostly supplanted 20,000 manually powered, dockless bikes owned by LimeBike, Ofo, Spin, MoBike, and VBikes. Those not up for mounting electric bikes or scooters might opt for Dallasbased efrog shuttles, which, since 2010, have transported people across downtown Dallas and surrounding districts, including Deep Ellum and Uptown. The six-seat, enclosed electric vehicles offer free rides and are funded by display advertising, corporate services, and city tours. Riders are encouraged to tip their drivers. The region’s mass-transit provider, Dallas Area Rapid Transit, has developed the GoPass app, allowing users to track incoming buses and trains in real-time and to pay for rides without carrying cash or cards. The app also estimates commute times and locates electric scooters, restaurants, and other points of interest. The GoPass also offers Uber and Lyft options. One Dallas startup firm, Alto, has received funding to disrupt the conventional rideshare market with a safety-minded orientation. From vehicle standards to employee vetting and training, Alto strives to offer a premium, professional, and customizable ride share experience.

Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART), which includes light rail and bus service, features the nation’s longest light-rail network and enables easy access to key job centers in Dallas and its suburbs. DART also provides convenient light-rail access to Dallas Fort Worth International Airport and interfaces with the Texas Railway Express (TRE). The TRE is an intercity commuter train that transports 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 Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA) operates its A-Train, which connects DART riders in Carrollton to five stations ending in Denton. In January 2019, the TEXRail commuter rail line opened, connecting downtown Fort Worth into Terminal B at the Dallas Fort Worth International Airport. And Arlington now has data on the viability of a private sector on-demand ridesharing partnership with Via.

MOBILITY 2045 Mobility 2045 serves as a fiscally responsible blueprint for the region’s long-term multimodal transportation needs. The plan provides a range of transportation options to serve the needs of Dallas-Fort Worth now and into the future. As the region grows from approximately 7.4 million residents today to an estimated 11.2 million by 2045, it will require an integrated, easily navigable transportation system of roads, public transportation, and bicycle and pedestrian facilities, complemented by local policies and programs to enhance infrastructure investment in even more publicly accessible options. These efforts to provide transportation choice to the traveling public and improve the quality of life driving the region’s growth are detailed in Mobility 2045.

FUNDED RECOMMENDATIONS Mobility 2045 represents a $136.4 billion blueprint for the continued maintenance and development of the regional transportation system over the next 20 plus years. Mobility 2045 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 communities. That’s good news for employers as it allows them to draw from a larger base of skilled workers. It’s also good for workers, who can choose from a variety of 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.

DALLAS FORT WORTH INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT AND DALLAS LOVE FIELD Dallas Fort Worth International Airport is an economic engine for the region, generating $37 billion in economic impact annually. Built in 1974 and situated 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, Dallas Fort Worth International Airport offers business travelers a high-frequency schedule and access to any major city in the continental United States in less than four hours. Cargo operations, which amounted to 918,130 metric tons in 2018, serve 34 major markets around the world, including several key markets in Asia. DFW Airport is upgrading its four original terminals with a $2.7 billion dollar ‘Terminal Renewal and Improvement Program’ (TRIP) and is expected to be completed in 2020. DFW Airport will host 165 gates in 2019, with plans for 20-30 more when a planned Terminal F is completed. 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 16.2 million passengers in 2018, underwent a $519 million modernization renovation, including a centralized terminal with 20 gates, a new lobby, and an expanded baggage claim area. Construction is also underway on an expanded passenger garage.

REGIONAL POPULATION Dallas–Fort Worth is continually ranked among the nation’s fastest-growing areas. Continuing job growth is a key factor for this growth. The population growth has, in turn, fueled real estate development as retailers and service providers expand to meet increasing demand. Population and job growth have pushed Dallas and Fort Worth to redevelop and re-energize their central business districts, creating mixed-use buildings with residential, office, and retail space in high-end urban environments. While Dallas and Fort Worth represent the largest population centers, four suburbs— Irving, Garland, Plano, and Arlington—have populations exceeding 200,000. These municipalities offer an abundance of housing options as people seek out the community that best fits their needs.

POPULATION DENSITY AND GROWTH While the majority of the population growth from 2000 to 2010 occurred in the suburbs, urban cores and first-ring suburbs continued to attract residents to well-established neighborhoods. According to the North Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG), the regional population is projected to hit 11.2 million by 2045. The heat maps shown here represent current population and employment densities, which can be contrasted with NCTCOG-generated maps on the opposite page presenting projections through 2040. NCTCOG maps are compiled by Traffic Survey Zone (TSZ), an aggregate of census blocks. Forecast estimates are produced by 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. NCTCOG 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.

DALLAS–FORT WORTH MARKET TAPESTRY Defining the “character” of the region sometimes involves segmentation. Segmentation systems suggest that people with similar tastes, backgrounds, and lifestyles gravitate toward and connect with one another. The market tapestry map presents areas within DFW where people with various similar characteristics and backgrounds tend to cluster.

56

D A L L A S ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT G U I D E

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 income, and still others result from ethnic influence.

PEOPLE | MARKET TAPESTRY

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. census tracts 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 14 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.

DEMOGRAPHIC METRO-TO-METRO COMPARISONS Dallas–Fort Worth compares favorably to other major metropolitan areas across the United States. Reasons include a welleducated workforce and central location which provides easy access to markets on the East and West Coasts. Additionally, the region’s low cost of living gives residents a higher standard of living on a lower median household income than in other large markets on either coast.

LABOR SUPPLY Employers in Dallas and 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, while keeping commute times low for major employment centers in and around the Dallas-Fort Worth central business districts. The region’s relatively low cost of living allows employers to tap into a strong workforce, no matter where they base their operations. For employees, the wide distribution of jobs means they can select from a variety of communities in which to live and enjoy the lifestyle that best fits their needs—whether the preference is a well-established neighborhood, a new, fast-growing community, or a small town in a rural setting. Seventy-three percent of the region’s 7.4 million residents are of working age. From this base, employers can tap into a total civilian labor force of 4.0 million people, a workforce size surpassed only by the much larger Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York metro areas.

DISTANCE TO JOB

The U.S. Census Bureau pairs home/ work census blocks to describe geographic patterns related to the workforce. Mapping commuter flows, for example, can help employers determine where potential workers live, as well as how far they might be willing to travel for work. Radar images dynamically communicate several important aspects about worker commute patterns. Using Dallas Downtown-Uptown as an employment center example, the radar indicates primary and secondary cardinal directions from which a worker travels to a job, and the distance traveled as determined by the color of each pie piece. The size of each pie piece indicates the volume of workers who commute from that direction and distance as indicated by the dashed concentric circles marked in hundreds or thousands of people. For instance, the greatest number of downtown workers live north of Dallas, while the greatest percentage (44.4%) reside between 10 to 24 miles away.

DFW has historically 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.

Basis of Rates per $100 Payroll SOURCE: Texas Department of Insurance

UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE TAX RATE 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 2018, the average tax rate is 1.37%.

OCCUPATION CLUSTERS The practice of identifying occupation clusters within a local economy is a relatively new approach to regional planning. 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.

These maps 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 financial cluster would include occupations related to financial services such as financial advisers, 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 The Dallas–Fort Worth area excels when compared economically to others 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, along with affordable real estate costs, are attractive to companies that are trying to minimize operational costs.

In terms of the largest corporate expenses—labor and rent—Dallas and Fort Worth also rank well below other major U.S. markets, making the region an attractive place to expand or relocate.

CORPORATE BUSINESS CLIMATE COMPARISON

A GREAT PLACE TO DO BUSINESS

The Dallas-Fort Worth area is home to a diverse array of corporate headquarters, and for good reason. The DFW region has tremendous assets that companies seek out when choosing where to locate. Recovery from the Great Recession has been uneven throughout the U.S. The Dallas-Fort Worth region not only weathered the downturn better than most other metro areas, but it has since thrived. Furthermore, difficult business climates in California, Illinois, and other heavily populated states are viewed in stark contrast to the operating environment throughout DFW and in Texas. Texas has won Site Selection Magazine’s Governor’s Cup six consecutive times, while Area Development Magazine continues placing the Lone Star State on top for driving economic growth and attracting new businesses.

Industrial diversity is an index used to gauge the extent to which an area’s economy resembles the national economy. Thus, it is useful in determining how closely the nation’s economic performance will be mirrored across regional economies. The diversity index for a given year is calculated using employment data at the four-digit NAICS level of industrial detail. A diversity index of one, the highest possible value, indicates that an area’s industrial structure—its distribution of employment across industries—is exactly the same as that of the nation. The lower the index, the less the region approximates the industrial structure of the nation. The index assumes that it is impossible for a regional economy to be more diverse than the national economy. Therefore, there are no diversity index values higher than 1. A state or metropolitan area with a higher diversity index is more likely to behave like the national economy, whereas a region with a very low diversity index will likely behave differently.

* Metropolitan division. All others are metropolitan statistical areas.

A diverse group of household names such as ExxonMobil, Texas Instruments, AT&T, American Airlines, J.C. Penney, KimberlyClark, Toyota, and Keurig Dr Pepper call the region home, reflecting the area’s strong fundamentals when it comes to workforce, access, and cost of doing business. The DFW region’s corporate powerhouse companies are distributed throughout Dallas-Fort Worth, an indication of its strength, quality of the workforce, and ease of navigation between cities and corporate centers. Scanning the roster of major employers located here, it’s easy to see the breadth and depth of the business community, from high-tech industry leaders, telecommunications, logistics, and finance to consumer brands that ease the daily lives of families across the globe.

FORTUNE 1000 Dallas-Fort Worth continues to draw Fortune and Global 500 headquarters by growth and expansion of local companies as well as by relocations of headquarter operations. DFW is the only region in the U.S. to host three Fortune 10 companies (with the recent addition of McKesson). No other metro has more than one. Similarly, DFW and Beijing are the only two metros to host three Global 20 companies.

The Dallas Regional Chamber works closely with many companies that consider and decide to locate major corporate facilities here, particularly headquarters. Our team knows how important these decisions are for both companies and their employees. We help companies understand this region fully -- from our demographics, labor costs, transportation assets, real estate options, or taxes and incentives that might apply to a project. Often we do it face to face. We visit companies and host executives here, including multiday visits during which we often engage Dallas-Fort Worth 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 DFW. 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 become 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-Fort Worth area. Our goal is to help the employees understand why our region is a great place to live, raise a family, and prosper. Eyes light up when we show pictures of homes with affordable prices, the arts and cultural amenities, our parks and trees and lakes, our foodie places, the outstanding medical care offered here, dog parks, light rail, and bike trails—as well as 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 who already know the area well, or might be from here, just get more excited about the move. Helping employees after a move is announced is a benefit to the company and its employees. It’s fun and very meaningful for the Chamber’s economic development team and an important part of the Dallas Regional Chamber’s corporate recruitment platform.

THE DALLAS INNOVATION ALLIANCE The Dallas Innovation Alliance (DIA) is a public-private partnership dedicated to supporting the design and execution of a smart cities plan for the City of Dallas that leverages data, technology, and community to improve economic development, resource efficiency, and, most importantly, quality of life. The mission is to develop a scalable smart cities model for the City of Dallas that leverages the city’s distinctive strengths in order to leave a legacy of innovation, sustainability, and collaboration for future generations. Initial efforts have been centered in the West End district of downtown, where a confluence of multimodal transit, walkability, historic buildings, and a burgeoning innovation district serves as ground zero for the city as a living lab. A threepronged strategy focuses on infrastructure, mobility, and connected living. The DIA has partnered with The DEC, AT&T, Cisco, Microsoft, and the University of Texas at Dallas to build a dedicated Smart Cities Incubator—Innov8te—to support startups addressing key challenges facing cities at a local and regional level. www.dallasinnovationalliance.com

However, this category also includes financial, professional, and technical services—from management consulting firms to business insurers and accounting to legal services. Complex technologies and transactional operations throughout Dallas-Fort Worth are pushing most advanced service activities into highly specialized firms and enterprises.

CONNECTING TO THE WORLD

DATA CENTERS Dallas–Fort Worth is situated in a nearperfect geographic region for IT hosting and data center operations. North Texas is in the Central Time Zone, which is effective for companies operating on both coasts. And, DFW offers plenty of land for massive data centers along with a temperate climate and lower construction and operation costs. 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 offers some of the lowest power rates for large industrial users.

LOGISTICS Dallas–Fort Worth’s central U.S. location provides an advantageous distribution hub, with quick access to rail, air, and short and long-haul truck transportation. The region is a global inland port, with Dallas Fort Worth International Airport and Fort Worth Alliance Airport capable of largescale cargo operations. The region also offers phenomenal rail transportation. Fort Worth-headquartered BNSF Railway has an extensive hub system throughout North Texas. Union Pacific operates the Dallas Intermodal Terminal in southern Dallas county, moving goods and services throughout North Texas and beyond. The confluence of three major interstates (30, 35, and 45), as well as I-20 and many state highways, offer distributors efficient routing options for moving products throughout the central part of the U.S. by truck. Carriers can reach up to 93 percent of the U.S. population within 48 hours, while I-35—the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) Corridor—provides a direct connection to Canada and Mexico.

INCENTIVES FOREIGN-TRADE ZONES (FTZs) provide dutyfree or deferred payment of goods processed at plants engaged in international trade. The DFW area currently has four FTZs. A six-county area (Dallas, Tarrant, Collin, Denton, Grayson, and Rockwall) has been preapproved by the federal government as eligible foreign-trade zone property. With the agreement of local officials, the federal government will provide any eligible business with a FTZ 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.

INDUSTRIAL CLUSTERS Industrial space is distributed throughout the Dallas–Fort Worth region with concentrations in: > Fort Worth’s AllianceTexas; > Surrounding Dallas Fort Worth International Airport; > In the southern part of Dallas County, along Interstate 20 and U.S. Highway 67; > In suburbs including Arlington, Garland, Grand Prairie, and Coppell; and > Along the Interstate 35E corridor between Dallas and Lewisville. The industrial space market has strengthened over the past couple years, with significant new developments throughout the region. CBRE reports that total industrial space under construction throughout the area topped 26 million square feet. The majority of that construction is taking place in Southern Dallas County, Great Southwest/ Arlington, and the North Fort Worth market. Observers credit the strength of the regional economy, as well as low taxes and labor costs, for sustaining DFW as a desirable market for real estate investment.

DFW INDUSTRIAL SPACE: A LOGISTICS, DISTRIBUTION, AND MANUFACTURING HUB

RETAIL CLUSTERS DFW’s retail space continues to enjoy high occupancy and absorption well above 1 million square feet, according to CBRE. In 2017, three major developments—Tanger Factory Outlets (Fort Worth), Legacy Hall (Plano), and IKEA (Grand Prairie)— celebrated grand openings, accounting for 702,000 square feet of delivery and absorption throughout the region. At the end of 2017, CBRE reported that 5.8 million square feet of retail space was under construction in DFW, with much of the activity taking place in the Far North Dallas, North Central Dallas, and Mid-Cities submarkets.

LIVE, WORK AND PLAY The development of higher density, mixed-use centers offers unique opportunities to both businesses and residents of the Dallas–Fort Worth region. Examples include: Addison Circle – Addison Bishop Arts – Dallas CityLine – Richardson Cypress Waters – Dallas Eastside – Richardson Frisco Station – Frisco Frisco Town Square – Frisco Granite Park – Plano Highland Park Village – Highland Park Legacy Town Center – Plano McKinney Urban Village – McKinney Magnolia Street – Fort Worth Midtowne – Midlothian Mockingbird Station – Dallas Montgomery Place – Fort Worth Museum Place – Fort Worth Park Lane Place – Dallas Parker Square – Flower Mound Rockwall Commons – Rockwall Southlake Town Square – Southlake Southside on Lamar – Dallas Sundance Square – Fort Worth Victory Park – Dallas Waters Creek at Montgomery Farm – Allen West Village – Dallas In addition, historic downtowns are being redeveloped into attractive regional destinations, including downtowns in Plano, McKinney, Denton, Carrollton and Grapevine.

RATES AND INFRASTRUCTURE WITHIN DFW

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 numerous lakes and the abundance of natural gas reserves, located in the geologic formation known as the Barnett Shale, ensure that DFW will have access to these resources in the decades to come.

AT&T and Texas Instruments, among others, call DFW home. As a result, the region is a strong telecommunications hub. Multiple carriers’ fiber networks, combined with longhaul fiber, connects North Texas cities to one another, as well as to the rest of the U.S. and the world. Redundancies in connectivity, combined with relative freedom from natural disasters, means minimal risk of downtime for any business operating in the vicinity. And with the imminent roll-out of 5G technologies by all of the major service providers, businesses in Dallas will have an unlimited ability to be connected internally, to other businesses and to their customers.

ELECTRICITY The Dallasâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Fort Worth region ranks close to the national median in terms of overall electric rates. The state of Texas operates on a power grid separate from that of the rest of the country, meaning DFW ranks high in electrical systems reliability. The Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) manages the flow of electric power to 24 million Texas customers. Furthermore, because Texas has a deregulated electricity market, consumers can shop around and choose their service providers, giving them flexibility in pricing and service.

Increasing business costs combined with ever-constrictive regulatory environments contribute to the rise of a business’ risks and costs. Tax burdens and labor requirements imposed on businesses create barriers to market entry and real estate development. Texas is a low-tax, business-friendly, right-to-work state. Companies from all over the United States and around the world come to do business in Texas because of low costs, central locations, and an industry environment favorable to growth and development. Because Texas is a right-to-work state—meaning employees are not required to join unions—it places high in favorable tax climate rankings. The DFW area has extremely low union activity.

STATE AND LOCAL INCENTIVES The Dallas–Fort Worth area has a strong business culture. The municipalities within the region offer a variety of local incentive programs to expand or relocate businesses, ranging from tax abatements and tax increment financing to the development of infrastructure and free-trade zones. The programs help maintain the low cost of doing business, enabling job-creating companies to gain a competitive advantage. Programs vary by city but offer a breadth that can provide value for a variety of projects. Additionally, statewide programs, including the Texas Enterprise Fund, Events Trust Fund, Workforce Development, and Product Development and Small Business Incubator Fund, are in place to encourage companies that create jobs and drive innovation to set up shop in the Lone Star State.

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 $1,500,000 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 EXEMPTIONS: Manufacturing companies may be exempt from paying state sales-and-use tax on electricity and natural gas used in manufacturing, processing, or fabricating tangible personal property. DATA CENTER EXEMPTION: This 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 TAX CREDIT: 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 (SDF): SDF 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. TEXAS PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT AND SMALL BUSINESS INCUBATOR FUND (PDSBI): PDSBI is a revolving loan program to aid in the development, production, and commercialization of new or improved products and to foster and stimulate small business in the state. Loan proceeds can be used for a broad range of capital and operating expenditures. Applicants must have at least three years of operating history and have unencumbered assets available for collateral. Preference for funding is given to the state’s defined industry clusters including, but not limited to: nanotechnology, biotechnology, biomedicine, renewable energy, agriculture, and aerospace.

FEDERAL INCENTIVES FOREIGN TRADE ZONES: A restricted-access site located in or near a U.S. Customs Service port of entry that provides users, such as importers, manufacturers, and distributors, with cost-saving benefits.

HOUSING COSTS DFW home prices are still among the most affordable in the country, according to research from the Urban Land Institute. The local housing marketâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strength during global economic fluctuations is due to 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 footage per home in DFW. The ease of travel between smaller cities and major job centers allows employees to choose from a variety of communities and neighborhoods to accommodate their lifestyles and price points.

HOUSING CHOICES When it comes to convenience and charm, the Dallas and Fort Worth areas offer plenty of 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. If you lean toward urban chic, relocate to a trendy urban loft complete with skyline views and downtown ambience. One major trend in DFW housing takes place above shops, restaurants, and movie theaters, thanks to numerous condominium and loft communities scattered throughout the area. 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. Whatever your style, Dallasâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Fort Worth has the home for you.

HOUSING | HOUSING CHOICES

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. Some newer apartment communities offer fun amenities. These include 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, mixeduse communities—which feature multiple apartment buildings as well as restaurants, shops, movie theaters, and underground parking—are popping up throughout the region, appealing to a segment of people who desire a walkable urban neighborhood experience without the responsibilities of homeownership.

ALVORD ISD 701 | 932

SCHOOL DISTRICTS School districts in the Dallas–Fort Worth region are locally administered and independent of one another and the cities and towns they serve. For example, the Richardson Independent School District (RISD) includes students in Richardson, as well as parts of Dallas and Garland. The Dallas Independent School District—or Dallas ISD—is the region’s largest school district with approximately 157,000 students. Students attending Dallas ISD schools reside 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 highest rating awarded by the Texas MILLSAP ISD 980 | 937 Education Agency. Dallas ISD hosts 15 magnet schools, including several that have been nationally recognized. Booker T.ISD Washington High BROCK 1,369 | 1013 School for the Performing and Visual Arts is in the heart of the Dallas Arts District and includes several internationally known artists among its alumni. The arts LIPAN ISD 389 | 952 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, are consistently recognized as among the best high schools in the nation byISDU.S. News and TOLAR 779 | 937 World Report. Other area schools recognized by U.S. News include Westlake Academy (Westlake), Highland Park High School (Highland Park), Uplift Academy (Arlington, Dallas, Irving), Lovejoy High School (Lucas), and Fort Worth Academy of Fine Arts (Fort Worth). In 2018, 139 area districts and K-12 schools received all distinctions available from the Texas Education Agency, and six area schools were recognized as Blue Ribbon Schools, a national honor awarded to those that have achieved academic excellence or made significant progress in closing the achievement gap. The Fort Worth ISD dominates Tarrant County, serving approximately 86,000 students. The district serves most of the city of Fort Worth, as well as those of Benbrook, Westover Hills, and Westworth Village. Students from parts of Forest Hill, Haltom City, and Kennedale also attend FWISD schools. The district is home to the brand new magnet school, L.M. Terrell Academy for STEM and Visual and Performing Arts, which will open prior to the 2018-2019 school year.

CHOOSING A DISTRICT Choices abound for schooling in the Dallas-Fort Worth area: public, public charter, private or parochial, and 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 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 which 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:

Dallas

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 and support 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.

PRIVATE HIGH SCHOOLS Parents send their children to private schools for a variety of reasons. Some select private schools for religious or moral reasons. Others value smaller class sizes and individualized attention for their children. Then there are parents who are focused on the highest possible learning standards, advanced placement courses, and rigorous college preparation that leads to enhanced academic opportunities. The Dallas-Fort Worth area offers a variety of private institutionsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;some religious, some secular, and some with special niches. Some of the more wellknown institutions are St. Markâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s School of Texas (Dallas), Hockaday School (Dallas), Greenhill School (Addison), Episcopal School of Dallas, Yavneh Academy of Dallas, Fort Worth Country Day School, and Trinity Valley School (Fort Worth).

RESEARCHING SCHOOLS

The Dallas-Fort Worth region offers a wide range of private school options. Some of the terms you will encounter as you look at private school options include: > Learning differences schools – These schools provide for students with learning differences across the spectrum and can range from pre-K through 12th grade. > Boarding schools – Several of the single-gender private schools offer full-time boarding as well as day student options. > Language/culture specific – Some schools offer immersion in specific languages, like French, Chinese and Japanese. Many of these schools offer Saturday and summer options for

2019

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.

The Dallas-Fort Worth region has major arts districts. The Dallas Arts District, anchored by the Dallas Museum of Art, Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center, and AT&T Performing Arts Center, is nearly 70 acres—the largest contiguous 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. 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 the fantastic cultural centers, the region 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. Dallas-Fort Worth is Texas’ most arts-intensive metro area on a per capita basis—a great deal of money per person goes to cultural arts. No matter what artistic pursuits you enjoy, you can find them here. You could spend every weekend in our arts districts and never run out of new things to do.

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, Interstates 635, 35, 30 and U.S. Highway 75 are some of the mosttraveled 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.

PARK CITIES AND VICINITY The cities of Highland Park and University Park are minutes from Downtown Dallas and Uptown, but are actually separate towns within the city of Dallas boundaries. The Park Cities maintain their own governance, city services, and schools. Situated north of downtown Dallas, the Park Cities are connected to other parts of Dallas via the North Dallas Tollway and Northwest Highway. Southern Methodist University (SMU) is centered in University Park and is known for its well-respected Cox School of Business and Dedman School of Law. Highland Park also is home to the historic Highland Park Village, the first planned shopping center of its kind in the U.S. Designed by Wilbur David Cook, the same planner who laid out Beverly Hills, California, Highland Park Village today is a high-end retail center. Adjacent to the Park Cities is the Dallas Medical Center, which contains wellrespected health-care institutions such as the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Presbyterian Hospital, Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Medical Center, Parkland Health and Hospital System, and Texas Scottish Rite Hospital.

ARLINGTON / GRAND PRAIRIE AREA Situated midway between Dallas and Fort Worth, the area around Arlington is home to major league sports teams, well-known manufacturers, and an important research university. Arlington, Grand Prairie, and the Mid-Cities trio of Hurst, Euless, and Bedford offer easy access to job centers, and key transportation links for distribution operations. The region offers easy east-west access to Dallas and Fort Worth along Interstates 20 and 30, and State Highway 183. North-south access is available via State Highways 360 and 161. Arlington is the home to one of General Motors’ largest assembly plants, which is currently undergoing a $1.4 billion expansion to incorporate the innovations in robotics assembly. GM also is developing a new “supplier park” facility on the former Six Flags mall site. Furthermore, the area includes major operations for aerospace giants Lockheed Martin and Triumph Group. On the education side, Arlington is home to the University of Texas at Arlington, which is among three Dallas–Fort Worth area schools striving to reach Tier 1 status as a research institution. And, Arlington is home to two of the region’s top sports venues, as well as family-friendly theme parks operated by Grand Prairie-based Six Flags Entertainment. The NFL’s Dallas Cowboys play at the massive AT&T Stadium, while Major League Baseball’s Texas Rangers play at the nearby Globe Life Park. The pro baseball team is, however, helping to develop a $250 million entertainment complex dubbed Texas Live! That venue is adjacent to a new $1 billion stadium for the Texas Rangers, which is expected to open in 2020. Meanwhile, just to the east, Grand Prairie hosts the horse racing complex Lone Star Park.

WISE COUNTY

WESTERN COLLIN COUNTY Booming. That’s the best way to describe western Collin County, one of the fastest-growing and most-affluent areas in the Dallas-Fort Worth region. The area’s growth is being driven by corporate relocations, consolidations, and expansions. Over the past few years, regional and national headquarters for Toyota, Liberty Mutual, Boeing, and FedEx opened in and around Plano, employing thousands of workers. The western portion of Collin County is home to Fortune 1000 firms, including J.C.Penney, Dr Pepper-Snapple Group, and Alliance Data Systems. The Star in Frisco is the headquarters and training facility of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys. The development, which also includes retail and office space, is a collaboration between the Cowboys, the City of Frisco, and the Frisco Independent School District, whose football teams will play their games at the Ford Center at the Star, an indoor stadium. Located north of Dallas, the area is served by North Central Expressway, the North Dallas Tollway, President George Bush Turnpike, and State Highway 121.
