the garland guide 2017

A Welcome from the Chairman of the Board & the Mayor of Garland Dear Chamber Members and Community Stakeholders, Welcome to the Garland Chamber of Commerce. For more than 100 years, the Chamber has served Garland as “The Connecting Source,” a focal point where Chamber members and community stakeholders alike can find the resources and connections needed to grow businesses, strengthen the local economy and enhance the quality of life in our community. An important key to the Garland Chamber’s long of history of success lies in its ability to adapt and respond to the ever-changing needs of the business community. When e-commerce became a reality, the Chamber proactively established a web presence and embraced social media to more effectively communicate with its members and stakeholders in the modern world. Requests by Chamber members for increased marketing and networking opportunities gave rise to successful events and programs like Direct Connect, Monthly Luncheons, the Annual Business Expo and the Women’s Business E-nitiative. Recognizing the vital role played by the small business community, the Chamber continues to expand its list of resources designed to ensure long-term growth and sustainability for small businesses in Garland. The Chamber also founded the Dallas County Manufacturers’ Association (DCMA) to better serve the manufacturing industry, which has long been the backbone of the local economy. In addition, future leaders continue to be nurtured by the Leadership Garland program, while the Chamber’s Legislative Committee works to inform members about pending legislation affecting business. By forming strategic partnerships with the City of Garland, Garland ISD, the Dallas Community College District and other key players, the Chamber has been able to open doors for both new entrepreneurs and existing business owners seeking comprehensive solutions to problems which impact their ability to succeed. The current need for workforce solutions provides a classic case in point. Many Garland companies are facing skilled labor shortages. Acting as a liaison between local employers and educational institutions, the Chamber has launched several important initiatives to facilitate the training and continuing education of a qualified local workforce. These include the creation of a joint internship program between Garland ISD and local businesses, as well as the establishment of a job matching system through the Chamber’s partnership with Workforce Solutions Greater Dallas. Also, with the help of higher education partners like Richland College, hundreds of workers employed by DCMA members have received grant-funded training through the Dallas County Community College District. More detailed information regarding the many resources and connections offered by the Chamber can be found in this year’s edition of The Garland Guide. On behalf of the Chamber Board of Directors and our dedicated staff of service-oriented professionals, we thank you for your continued support of the Garland Chamber of Commerce. Your “Connecting Source” is here to serve you.

the making of a well-developed workforce

Partnering for Progress On Sept. 22, 2015, the Garland Chamber of Commerce and Garland Independent School District co-hosted Match Day, a component of the newly-developed Job Shadow Day program, for the first time. In 2016, the collaboration continued with the 2nd annual event on Oct. 4. The Garland Chamber of Commerce is well known in the community and the region for being The Connecting Source, a reputation that rings especially true in partnerships like this one, purposed to increase awareness of local career opportunities and prepare students for their futures as part of the workforce. Garland ISD schools are recognized across the nation for high performance campuses and customized education tracks. Exceptional education has long been the focus of GISD, with rigorous instruction, technological innovation, as well as college and career preparation, and yet false community perceptions have continued to give employers pause in considering GISD students for internship and entry-level career opportunities. The Job Shadow Day program evolved as part of a dedicated effort to tackle this misperception. In the summer of 2015, Chamber CEO Paul Mayer and Vice President Jenna Dickson initiated conversations with three dynamic GISD instructors

who had been involved in previous Chamber programs. These instructors, with the support of GISD administrators, formed an education task force. The purpose of this task force was not only to create a strategy that would convey the high caliber of students produced by GISD, but also to create opportunities for students to shadow, intern with, and be mentored by local professionals from the diverse industries located right here in Garland, Texas. After months of planning and preparation, Job Shadow Day was formed. In 2015’s inaugural event, taskforce-participant instructors Jerry Scribner from Garland, Tracy Glick from Naaman Forest and Sean Denny North Garland High School began

by conducting thorough, extensive evaluations of the students in their programs and carefully selecting their top students to participate in this first-time opportunity. Together, they brought 35 students to the Richland College Garland Campus Gallery where eight local companies each hosted a table. In a format similar to the Chamber’s popular Direct Connect networking event, students were assigned rotations, allowing them to visit each of the eight employers for about eight minutes apiece. In 2016, additional companies were added, as was the opportunity for students to select a specific role to shadow, rather than only selecting a company. In 2016, Glick also implemented a new tool called Naviance, which was

We’ll use the self-discovery and assessments to learn the student interests and better select the best employers for them to interview with on Match Day.

provided by the district for every student. Naviance is comprehensive K-12 college and career readiness online application that helps districts and schools align student strengths and interests to postsecondary goals, improving student outcomes and connecting learning to life. GISD students can access Naviance on their district-assigned iPads, or from any internet-connected device, and take advantage of self-discovery assessments, a resume builder, and even submit college applications. For Job Shadow Day preparation, Glick is using the tool to help the students narrow their focus and determine their top career interests. “Job Shadow Day is allowing us to pilot and get the students involved even more into Naviance,” Glick said. “We’ll use the self-discovery and assessments to learn the student interests and better select the best employers for them to interview with on Match Day. Of course, we will use the resume portion for Match Day too.” Glick’s vision is exactly what happened. The format of the matching event allowed students to gain high-quality interview experience and get their names out in the community with reputable companies. With two to three students per rotation, participating companies conducted brief interviews and offered a glimpse into the various career options within their business. “Match Day kind of came along really from Lily and Kathryn at the City,” Glick said, referring to two members of the City of Garland

Human Resources department. “They said, ‘Do you want us to come in and talk to your students? Can we meet them before?’ … So that’s where we started to come up with this idea to put everyone together at one time in one room … That was, I think, just as beneficial to the students – to be able to have that opportunity to interview with someone who is a real employer, not just practicing with your advisor or your mom or dad, but to have a real chance at an interview, and not just one, but eight.” The experience has proven to really resonate with students. “It was really intimidating to have all these people asking me all these questions at the first table, but by the end of the event, I felt like a pro and was able to easily answer their questions,” one student said. Following the rotations, students and companies were each asked to rate each other, giving the Chamber and GISD instructors the ability to see which students would be a best fit for each company on Job Shadow Day. Proving the instructors’ belief that their students bring some impressive skills to the table, there wasn’t a single student who wasn’t selected by at least one company. “There wasn’t a student who wasn’t on anybody’s list,” Glick said. “Everybody showed up somewhere. The employers were very impressed. They were like, ‘Wow. These kids look good!’” Each student was given a placement based on their preferences, and on Job Shadow Day, they walked into their assigned

business, many for the first time. “For some of them, it’s their first time to go into a company,” Glick said. “They may go into a restaurant or a retail business, but they have no idea when they walk into a business. What is this, what do you do, what’s it like in here? They certainly have not seen manufacturing or anything like that … It’s such a great experience for them to see what really goes on in the world all day long.” The structure of Job Shadow Day varies from one employer to the next because, of course, no two jobs are the same. Some students observed a single employee for the entire workday, sitting in on meetings, conference calls and getting a feel for the environment in his or her chosen field of interest. Other students, like the four who spent their day with Kathy Perez and the team at Milano Hat Co., rotated through multiple departments, gaining an understanding of how each piece of a business process is interconnected, and that success is reliant on a functional team from start to finish. The group at Milano spent time on the plant floor with the felt and straw departments, the trim-line department, the maintenance department and even the in the warehouse. After lunch, they shifted focus to the business office, sitting with customer service representatives, designers, human resources professionals and the accounting team. From 9 a.m. until 3 p.m., the students explored the true atmosphere of a manufacturing company, getting a realistic picture of what it takes to make a product most people only get to see once it arrives on a store’s shelf.

the making of a well-developed workforce

Perez compared the students’ experience on Job Shadow Day to traveling. Reading about a foreign country in a text book, or watching a special program on television gives a person some level of knowledge, but until you’re there, walking around in the culture, you don’t truly understand what it’s like. According to her experience, some people think of manufacturing as, “You push a button, hear this ‘ker-chunk, ker-chunk, ker-chunk,’ and here come the hats.” For the students, it was an eye-opening experience into the world even most adults haven’t seen firsthand. “A lot of people don’t realize there are that many steps that go into making a hat,” Perez said. “Not only is it intricate as far as the steps, but it’s intricate as far as the quality that goes into the hat. That’s one of the things that we pride ourselves on, the high, high quality of the materials that go into the hat.” One of the great advantages to the departmental rotations the students went through at Milano was that they began to understand that no industry is limited to a single type of job. Manufacturing companies have many important processes within the business that don’t happen on the plant floor, and many career opportunities are available in industries that may not be top of mind for local students. “I think it was very beneficial for them to see, look, there’s something this exciting, this much fun, that I’m interested in, right here in my backyard,” Perez said. “I don’t have to go off to New York to be a designer. I don’t have to go off to Houston to be a builder.” Developing a new, broader perspective quickly became the theme of the event as both students and employers learned more about each other. “I think it was good for everybody,” Glick said. “I think the students learned more about Garland and have a better impression and I think the employers have a better impression of the students too.”

Perez observed a healthy, competitive spirit among the students she hosted, as well as an eagerness to explore pathways they hadn’t previously realized were available to them. And with the newly developed relationship between employer and student, Perez was also able to shed a little light on the soft-skills issues employers are facing with younger generations entering the workforce. “When you’re in school, you take a test, you get a 90, OK. Or you get an 85 or a 70, OK, I passed,” Perez said. “At work, if you’re doing a 70 all the time, you’re going to be looking for a new job, because you’re not doing it to the best of your ability. You have to continuously achieve. That’s what employers want. They want those people that go above and beyond. You can get the everyday C worker, but that doesn’t make your business better.” Garland ISD instructors, like Glick, understand that there’s a disconnect from education to employment, and it’s something they’re working diligently to repair. “You always hear about the skills gap and that employers have jobs, but we don’t have the right people to fill them,” Glick said. “There’s some way, somehow, that we’ve got to make a connection, that we better train the students on what the opportunities are and what skills they need to have.

We need to help them so that they can get those jobs.” This is the vision for Job Shadow Day. Beyond an awareness of which companies are doing business in Garland, Texas and so much more than a day outside the classroom, Job Shadow Day is a small step in preparing students to take charge of their own futures. Students are seeing firsthand the real world applications of classroom curriculum, before they ever choose a college major, pursue a certification or select a career path. This allows them to make more informed decisions about what they’ll set out to achieve, maybe even starting right here at home. “Our hope is that these students would see, some are going to go off to college, some are ready for the workforce, but whatever the situation, they see that, there’s a great company here and either you can stay here in your own community, or you can go off to school and then come back to us,” Glick said. The opportunities for student success in Garland, Texas are boundless. The Chamber’s efforts in connecting educators to employers is just the beginning, but it’s a solid start. “If I could talk to all the students, I would say, ‘Sign up for this. Do it. You will be changed forever for it,’” Perez said. “And they really will.”

Mind the Gap: Leading a Changing Workforce By Ken Alexander, Partners for People Management London’s Underground railway system, commonly known as the “Tube”, is the oldest and one of the three largest underground transportation systems in the world. Its 263 miles of lines provide an average of 2,670,000 passenger rides per day. At each of its 274 stations, passengers hear a recorded message and see signs reminding them to, “Mind the Gap”. These warnings alert riders to pay attention to the “gap” between the carriage (the railroad car) and the platform. Many a shoe, purse, parcel, and person have accidently dropped into the “gap” since the rail service began in 1863. In today’s business world, there

is another kind of gap. It is the “generational gap”, and it affects employees and leaders of every business. This gap creates challenges for today’s leaders as they strive to increase productivity and bridge the challenges of leading multigenerational teams. For the first time in history, leaders must navigate the management of four different generations in the workplace, and at the same time, prepare for the coming knowledge and experience gap that looms in the not-too-distant future as Baby Boomers begin to retire. It is a daunting task! However, effective leaders can bridge the generation gap while laying

the groundwork for the workplace of the future. As you look at leading your team of employees, the first step involves gaining a basic understanding of the four generational groups that dominate today’s viable workforce. Although there are some variations on the chronological boundaries of each of these groups, there is general agreement on their defining characteristics. The chart provides a description of the many differences between the generations. There are some striking variances and a few similarities. Each has been shaped by the social climate of their formative years.

the making of a well-developed workforce

Today’s labor force is experiencing radical change as we encounter the worldwide phenomenon of “global aging”. In their book Managing the Millennials, Chip Espinoza and Mick Ukleja state that the domination of the Baby Boomers will continue to fade as 10,000 “boomers” will retire each day for approximately the next 14 years. This demographic shift means that a new workforce of people who have different values, work ethics, and preferred work environments will make up the majority of available employees, and smart leaders will be able to capitalize on this shift. We need to look at ways to engage and encourage this new workforce without losing touch with the other generations. Balance is the key. Since Baby Boomers and Generation Xer currently dominate the workforce, let’s focus on approaches to manage the Millennials. We usually think of technology as the key differentiator between the generations, Espinosa and Ukeja state that technology is not only a tool for doing more work but also an integral part of life for members of this group. Because Millennials were raised in democratic and praise-based families that proudly displayed “My kid made the honor roll” bumper stickers, they grew up in an era where the focus of parenting was nurturing. They have grown up working on teams in school and on academic projects. When they get into the workforce, they expect to work in teams. As we move into a workforce dominated by Millennials, consider Espinoza and Ukleja’s suggestions in your leadership plan… • Be flexible. Address the two major concerns they have when it comes to workplace satisfaction: 1) the freedom to negotiate their job description and 2) management’s recognition that they have a life outside work. • Create the right rewards. Reward the right things in the right ways. Millennials want to be involved in the design of their incentive programs. 1) Create incentive that they value. 2) Clearly and thoroughly state the expected outcomes, and 3) assess developmental progress on a regular basis. • Put their imagination to work. Millennials are the most creative of all the generations currently in the workplace. Realize that they bore easily, so keep the challenges coming. If you do not seriously want their input, do not ask for it. Let them know what you think about their ideas. Let them have fun as fun stimulates creativity. • Build relationships. When Millennial employees perceive that a manager is interested in their personal development, they will work harder for that manager. • Fragile! Handle with care. Millennial employees’ defensiveness is tied to their desire to achieve. When correcting them, be both candid and kind. This generation responds to managers who care enough to listen to them, attempt to understand them, and assure them of the relationship. After confrontation, be sure to invite them to look forward to their growth by regularly recognizing their progress, providing them with support, giving them constructive feedback, and showing them that you want them to succeed.

• Don’t take things personally; it’s not always about you. Effective managers allow their subordinates to challenge them. These managers do not get defensive, they do not get hooked, and they can even see it as a way to connect. They have the ability to self-differentiate and not take personally the complaints, criticisms and abrasiveness of their younger workers. • Show them the big picture. With more than 80 million inexperienced workers entering the work force, your competitive advantage will come from the ability to share knowledge more than ever before. Help them see the possibilities. • Include the details. Millennials welcome high direction. Clear and repetitive instruction is important. If you sense that your direct report is anxious or distant, it may be because of a lack of clarity or understanding of what is required from him or her. • Make it matter to them. Millennials want to know, “why,” before, ”what.” Leaders must help the Millennials find a reason to care. They are the easiest of the workforces to motivate once you have helped them find meaning in what they do. They want to know that what they do matters. Think of these suggestions as ways to help bridge the gap between the workforce of today and the workforce of tomorrow. The workforce is changing, and we must adapt, not the other way around. With careful preparation and understanding, you will find success with each generation if you are deliberate about minding the gap.

Emerging Leaders Impacting Industry For decades, manufacturing has been a strong pillar of the Garland, Texas economy, as it has been for cities across the country. Local manufacturing not only contributes to higher export potential, but also to higher standards of living and higher employment rates. In fact, research by the National Association of Manufacturers shows that every dollar spent in manufacturing adds $1.37 to the U.S. economy, and every 100 jobs in a manufacturing facility creates an additional 250 jobs in other sectors. This data alone is enough to prove that manufacturing matters a great deal to the Garland community as we have more than 300 manufacturers within our city borders. For the Garland Chamber of Commerce and the Garland Economic Development Partnership, supporting manufacturing employers is a high priority for community sustainability and growth. As a means to provide ongoing support and advocacy, the Chamber launched the Dallas County Manufacturers’ Association in 2006. The mission of the DCMA is to provide the Dallas County manufacturing community with the best opportunities to be sustainable in the global marketplace through facilitating workforce development, advocacy at the local, state and national levels, and the sharing of best practices among its members. This mission is carried out through a variety of venues that both contribute resources and facilitate understanding among industry and community leaders. One such program is the DCMA Leadership Academy. Launched in 2013, the Academy is a training course created in partnership with Richland College, Garland Campus, with the goal of bringing in plant employees new to supervisory roles and developing their skills in goal setting, communication, and change and conflict management. For employees being considered for internal career advancement, coursework is highly relevant

in developing the skills that will aid in their professional growth and contribute to the efficiency of operations in their individual plants. With an unemployment rate below 3.9 percent in Garland, as of August 2016, it has become increasingly vital for local companies to hang on to the talent they have. As the Baby Boomer generation retires from the workforce, their successors in Generation X and the Millennial generation are moving rapidly upward to fill the gaps in companies across the country. The transition not only presents challenges in the number of available workers, but also in the loss of knowledge and experience as tenured professionals pass the torch. The DCMA Leadership Academy provides Garland manufacturers with the resources they need to help minimize the gaps and prepare their emerging leaders. To date, 14 local companies have supported 93 participants in taking the course, and both the employers and the participants have reported positive results.

Regarding the program module on goal setting, one participant said, “This training not only teaches how to write goals, but it also opens your eyes to its importance. It challenges you to go back to your workplace and set goals to improve your performance.� That improved performance on the part of the supervisor only spreads as it stimulates a culture of excellence among the team he or she is involved with. In any organization, the attitudes and behaviors of leadership make a significant impact on morale, work ethic and motivation for achievement. Demonstrating a little bit of confidence in an employee by sending him or her to leadership training can be just the right step toward helping a rising star realize his or her potential. And when company employees are being challenged to operate at their own highest levels, the very best will be inspired to stay, and the company as a whole is likely to see heightened efficiency at every level.

the making of a well-developed workforce

Following participation in the DCMA Leadership Academy, here’s what a few of those rising stars reported in their course evaluations.

“I plan to make my goals more specific and have achievable expectations.”

“Before this training, I had no idea that I was also part of the conflict problem…”

“I will be more assertive when I need to ask questions or request actions from my suppliers.”

“I will have empathy toward others I communicate with, prior to going into problem-solving mode.”

“I think all new supervisors should take this course.”

One participant added, We think so too. Whether it’s DCMA Leadership Academy, Leadership Garland, or any of many available leadership training opportunities, the most valuable resource and investment for any company is its people. As generations in the workforce continue to shift, leaders continue to emerge. Supporting their growth and success will undoubtedly prove to result in success for sustainable industry operations, as well as a vibrant and qualified workforce to support Garland’s growth for many years to come. Membership is the Dallas County Manufacturers’ Association is available for any manufacturer located in Dallas County.

Chamber of Commerce?

What’s That?

Chambers of Commerce have a long-standing reputation of making positive contributions to the communities they serve, and Garland is no exception. The Garland Chamber has been around since 1895 to make sure our city remains a profitable place for business owners to set up shop; and though our role and responsibilities have evolved,

possible with the resources we have available. However, though we’ve served the community for more than 120 years, many local residents and business owners still don’t understand why we’re here and how we can help a business grow. To help clarify a few common misconceptions, here’s a quick look at what the Chamber is, and what it’s not.

we still operate under the same mission, acting as the catalyst for positive change in the greater Garland community. The Garland Chamber staff and leadership agree that a city’s economic success begins with the success of each individual business, which means we want to connect as many local business owners as

What We Are:

What We’re Not: A Department of the Government

A 501(c)(6) Non-Profit Business Organization

The City of Garland and Chamber of Commerce have very different functions, and though we frequently work together, we are separate organizations.

A Marketing or Advertising Firm A Source of Opportunities for You to get Your Message in Front of a Large Business Audience

We provide the business community with ample opportunities to get noticed in Garland, but content creation and advertising design are not in our wheelhouse.

A Staffing Agency A Team of Dedicated Professionals Eager to Find Innovative Solutions for Workforce Development

We host career expos, training programs and offer free use of an online job board, but when it comes to filling open positions in your company, we leave that to the experts and can refer you to several great member staffing agencies in the area.

A Group of Lobbyists An Advocate on Behalf of our Members

A Host of Business Development and Networking Opportunities

We are not politically affiliated and though we do have a legislative agenda containing various items we support on behalf of our members, the bulk of our advocacy happens on a local level, helping businesses overcome operational challenges.

A Source of Guaranteed Sales Contracts We facilitate introductions and give you a platform, your skill and expertise do the rest!

How We’re Helping Businesses Succeed Now that you know a little more about what the Garland Chamber is, here’s a look at what the Chamber does. Beyond the things you already know, like hosting dynamic networking events and educational workshops, we also serve as The Connecting Source™, a central hub where businesses can find solutions to their most pressing challenges and access resources to facilitate more efficient operations. Because part of our mission is to be a role model for performance excellence, we operate under a carefully-

constructed, collaborative strategic plan. Developed in 2014 with the input of community stakeholders, City leaders and member businesses, the Chamber set goals in place for the following major focus areas. The plan continues to grow and evolve as we find innovative ways to meet the needs of the Garland business community, but the intent remains the same; we’re here to help local businesses succeed. Check out a few of the Chamber’s strategic plan accomplishments from 2016.

Solutions for Small Business Workforce Challenges Small businesses employ the majority of the nation’s private workforce with 56.1 Million as of the end of 2015.

Pinot’s Palette, in Garland, Texas, is a small business that mirrors these hiring activities. When owners Chris and Asja Randell opened their store in Firewheel Town Center July 2016, they hired nine employees, including themselves. Despite Pinot’s success in finding talented employees, they know there is always room for improvement and have already observed a need for additional skills training for their new talent. “We’re really excited about our hires, but nobody’s perfect and they could all benefit from training in certain software like Excel and supplement their soft skills like customer service and selling,” Chris said. “Soft skills are never perfected and always need to be a priority.” So, with guidance from the Garland Chamber of Commerce, Chris and Asja turned to the Dallas Metropolitan Small Business Development Center (DMSBDC) for some assistance. According to Judith Collins of the DMSBDC, many small businesses experience challenges that prohibit them from funding, hiring and training new and existing employees. For one thing, many small business owners perceive themselves as being limited in time to prioritize long-range financial planning that includes hiring new workers. Pinot’s Palette provides exceptional on-boarding training and coaching as they are part of an organized franchise, but not every small business owner has these support structures to lean on. In general, many small business owners typically are so busy wearing many hats that they don’t always have the time to hire objectively and correctly. Finally, small business owners and managers often do not perceive the need for training staff and do not make the provisions to install basic job function or skills training in their organizations. Through counselors like Collins, the DMSBDC assist small businesses with a host of issues including business plans, market research, capital access, growth, and expansion both domestically and overseas. Growth and expansion assistance includes helping clients hire and retain employees. SBDC offices also assist clients with practical tools to help them make informed and objective decisions about hiring and firing. Clients also have access to monthly workshops where the SBDC invites experts to engage small business participants on Human Resource and other business operation challenges. To learn more about SBDC services, visit www. dallasmetropolitansbdc.com or contact the Garland Chamber of Commerce. “Dallas SBDC helped us with our marketing and financial planning,” Chris said. “However, we did our

Judith did educate us about Richland Community College workforce training programs and a special grant for small businesses that if we qualify, would allow us to pay for employee training. It would cost us nothing but time and effort to fill out paperwork. We plan to participate as continuous improvement is always a top priority.” Participants of the small business grant would have to fulfill training needs by enrolling employees in available college courses anywhere in the community college network. Konley Kelley, Director of Corporate and Community Relations at the Richland College Garland Campus, said the small business grant program is a good solution to augment any training budget.

Garland’s Affordability Advantage for Business The North Texas commercial real estate market is booming, but with more than 200 distinct municipalities in the Dallas Metroplex area, deciding where to invest can be challenging. Competition for prime office and industrial space drives prices up in both fast-growing suburbs and established downtown areas, while developing on open land in the outskirts of the Dallas region often involves expensive investment in new infrastructure. Among all these dynamic market shifts, Garland has emerged as a community with a distinct Affordability Advantage. Garland is a large and vibrant historic suburb of Dallas and, when compared to other fast-growing Metroplex communities, it becomes a uniquely attractive community for commercial investment. AVAILABLE FACILITIES Garland has many types of land available for lease and purchase. There were 483 acres of land listed for sale in August of 2016. In addition, there is a 9.4% industrial property vacancy rate and the vacancy rate for retail has fallen to 9.5%.

submarket for industrial property, in which Garland is also included, contains the 2nd lowest quoted direct lease rate for industrial property.

Garland was recently ranked as the 2nd most affordable city in the country, as measured by its median housing price divided by the population’s median income. Garland also is ranked nationally as a top city for working parents and as a community offering workers one of the highest starting salaries. This reputation as one of the most affordable and attractive large cities in the country naturally extends to commercial and industrial investment opportunities. The East Dallas market for office space, in which Garland is included, is one of the most affordable in the region. An average quoted direct lease rate for office space in the East Dallas submarket is $15.13 per square foot. That is the 2nd lowest among submarkets measured by the North Texas Commercial Association of Realtors and 30 percent less than the average lease rate across the Metroplex ($21.45).

Closer research of recent lease and sales data specifically in Garland show highly competitive prices for commercial and industrial properties. Sales comps for industrial property in Garland for 2016 reveal a median price per square foot of $45.90 and an average price of $50.06. Those property costs are nearly equal to that of the larger City of Dallas, but are also $5-20 less per square foot than comparable suburban communities. Businesses interested in leasing space in the Metroplex have affordable options as well. In Garland, the average annual lease rate for office space in 2016 was $14.27 per square foot. That amount matches the office lease rate in nearby Richardson and is far less than the rates found in Irving, Arlington, McKinney, Plano, Dallas, and the average rate for the Dallas metro area as a whole. Garland has a thriving industrial and manufacturing economy and those interested in leasing industrial land have attractive options. Industrial lease comps for 2015 show a Lease Rate of $6.40, less than the average for the Dallas metro area as a whole and nearly equal to other industrial areas in Dallas and INFRASTRUCTURE Irving.

The Future Begins Today From prekindergarten to graduation, Garland ISD prepares students for whatever path they choose by building creative, critical-thinking and problem-solving skills. If students choose college, they also receive help picking the right one, passing entrance exams and even paying for tuition. GISD’s college-going culture begins with spirit days, studentrun college fairs and field trips. In middle school, students start taking the PSAT. The district pays for all eighth-11th graders to take it at school every fall. A partnership with Khan Academy also offers free 24/7 practice online. Students can even link their previous scores to get targeted tutorials for areas identified as weaknesses.

In high school, GISD trains students in test-taking strategies at free PSAT/SAT boot camps and once again foots the bill for all juniors to take the SAT at school every spring. The district also hosts an expo that introduces juniors and seniors to representatives from more than 100 colleges, universities and armed forces organizations. National Merit and various other scholarships, as well as passing

scores on Advanced Placement (AP) tests, provide tuition assistance. AP scores of three and above can not only be exchanged for college credit, but also earn students $100 each through GISD’s National Math and Science Initiative College Readiness Program. And, the district covers the cost of all AP exams. Join the movement. #CollegeReadyGISD

Education Your Way With several magnet and innovative programs, Garland ISD offers families the unique opportunity to customize education. Most other districts require students to attend the school closest to home, but GISD allows them to attend any campus in the district. This opportunity is called Choice of School and it meets individual interests and learning styles. There’s something for everyone—from three years old-12th grade. Magnet Programs • Academy for Excellence • Advanced language, social studies, math and science coursework meets the needs of students requiring accelerated instruction • Students develop artistic talents through a sequence of enriched art, theater, band, orchestra and choir courses • Accelerated Math and Science • Allows students to advance faster, taking more math and science classes throughout high school • Students choose one of three tracks:

Graduating the workforce of tomorrow Hallways in Garland ISD are not only filled with students, but also future automotive technicians, engineers, nurses, lawyers, manufacturers and more. The district’s Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses teach skills that can translate into numerous professions. Several students also graduate with certifications that can earn high-paying salaries or allow them to pay their way through college. But graduating the workforce of tomorrow takes more than just GISD. The district proudly partners with local businesses to provide onthe-job experience, internships and industry advisors. Many educational endeavors are also made possible through the generosity of machines, materials and scholarships. “Our community helps bring learning out of the classroom and into the real world,” said Interim Superintendent Dr. Deborah Cron. “These invaluable opportunities not only give students a head start in life, but also make education more relevant. We cannot thank our supporters enough.” One budding opportunity pairs

students with prospective employers for a job shadow day, requiring professional resumes and interviews. “I feel I grew from this event,” commented one participant. “Seeing the job first hand, I learned what to expect and am now more excited to pursue it.” The opening of GISD’s new Gilbreath-Reed Career and Technical Center in 2017-18 creates additional opportunities and also extends them to younger grades. Boasting North Texas’ first BizTown in partnership with Junior Achievement of Dallas, this simulated city is run by sixthgraders who hold positions as Mayor, Police Chief, Business Owner and more. Juniors and seniors have the ability to run a restaurant in the Center’s state-of-the-art culinary arts facility as well. Other possible areas of study include animation, architecture, business, computer maintenance, engineering,

36 | EDUCATION | 2017 COMMUNITY GUIDE AND BUSINESS DIRECTORY

graphic communication, firefighting, veterinary medicine, fabrication and machining, logistics and robotics. Offering morning and afternoon sessions, high school students across the district can explore new interests regardless of their home campus. “GISD and its community share the same vision of preparing students to be globally competitive,” added Cron. “I am confident our graduates will excel in whatever field they choose, and I encourage local businesses to look here at home for their next new hire.” Interested companies who want to help train, motivate or hire tomorrow’s workforce can contact the CTE Department at 972-487-3170.

Making a Living According to the 2016 study by MoneyRates.com, Texas ranks fifth among all 50 states for the Best Places to Make a Living. The study’s rankings are based on each state’s average salary, cost of living, employment rate and workplace conditions. “The median wage in Texas is a little below par, but so is the cost of living. Also, with no state income tax, workers get to keep more of what they earn. The job market in Texas is a little stronger than in most states, and it has the second-lowest frequency of work-related injuries and illnesses at 2.6 workplace incidents per 100 workers.”

In recent years, the NTTA completed the final phase of a project that extends the western PGBT terminus south to Interstate 20 through the city of Grand Prairie, forming a half loop around the city of Dallas. Now, the competitive advantage of Garland’s central location will be further enhanced as the PGBT Widening Project will include widening of the PGBT from north of Belt Line Road (Irving) to State Highway 78 to four lanes in each direction.

50 | GETTING SETTLED IN GARLAND | 2017 COMMUNITY GUIDE AND BUSINESS DIRECTORY

Construction is anticipated to begin in 2017 to add a fourth lane from SH 78 to U.S. 75 and DNT to I-35E. Completion of the entire project is anticipated in 2019. Heavy Rail Before the Great Depression, the Santa Fe (now Kansas City Southern) and MK&T Railroads (who later merged with Union Pacific) wrote the history of Garland’s business expansion, primarily centered on the distribution of cotton and onions, and telephone/


telegraph services. Heavy rail and passenger rail lines continue to play an important role in Garland’s future development. The development of the Union Pacific Inland Port in Southern Dallas over the next 30 years promises to increase Class I rail traffic throughout the Union Pacific system, including shortline feeders such as the Dallas-GarlandNortheastern Railroad. Public Transportation Options Garland has two light rail stations linking residents and employees with the region. Located in the heart of two of Garland’s largest employment centers, the Forest/Jupiter and Downtown Light Rail Stations serve more than 3,000 riders each weekday. The City continues to encourage higher intensity residential, retail and employment uses adjacent to the stations for its near and long-term economic growth. Adding further connectivity and convenience, DART’s Blue Line extension connects Downtown Garland with Downtown Rowlett, and the final Orange Line segment links the country’s longest light rail system to the world’s third-busiest airport at the DFW Airport Station. The North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) Mobility 2030 Plan also recommends study of the Kansas City Southern rail corridor north from Downtown Garland to Lake Lavon to accommodate future passenger rail needs (Wylie). This could ultimately give Garland three DART rail stations, further interweaving the city into the center of the Metroplex. Garland also features an extensive bus service which connects to the surrounding DFW Metroplex. For more information about Dallas Area Rapid Transit and the services available, visit www.dart.org.
