Economic Development

TREC advocates for policy tools that stimulate the economy and promote responsible and sustainable development such as Tax Increment Financing and Public Improvement Districts, programs that provide tools for retrofitting existing infrastructure, public-private partnerships, and tax abatement. Additionally, we advocate for important policy categories including mobility, education, housing, and land use regulation that significantly impacts economic development.

Since 2010, the City of Dallas’ Sustainable Development and Construction department has issued more than 4,700 new commercial permits worth $8.53 billion, creating 98 million square feet of commercial real estate.
