The Downtown Development Office (DDO) is an advocate for Downtown Garland. The DDO strives to coordinate revitalization efforts, policy development, promotional and marketing activities, small business support, and other initiatives that contribute to growing Downtown Garland to its full potential.
Primary responsibilities of the DDO include managing the implementation of the project plan for the Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone (TIF #1), gathering and collectively representing Downtown's interests, and coordinating stakeholder efforts to promote Downtown as a destination.
Beginning in late 2021, the City of Garland will initiate the Downtown redesign project, a construction project aimed at revitalizing the Garland square and surrounding streetscapes. Learn more about the plan by watching the video below.
Team Downtown volunteers will engage with visitors, help them navigate around construction, and promote local businesses, to ultimately contribute to the Downtown Garland experience.
The DDO is accepting applications for a new Downtown Revitalization Program to assist commercial property owners in the Downtown Garland Historic District with projects improving the economic vitality of their buildings.
