City of Dallas Office of Economic Development

Dallas maintains a full service economic development program that leads the City’s business and real estate development efforts. The Office supports existing and prospective Dallas businesses and the development and redevelopment of downtown and neighborhoods in southern Dallas.

The Office follows a stakeholder supported strategic plan which sets Dallas’ economic development vision:

Dallas will become a diverse, vibrant, urban city that works and builds on its core strengths. It will be a city that is strategically engaged in economic development, business friendly, with a dynamic and expanded center-city economy, balanced growth and development opportunities and a city of great neighborhoods.
