Dallas

Dallas’ Resilience Journey

Dallas is the vibrant, urban center of the North Central Texas region. The city grew with the oil and cotton industries to become a major economic center with advanced banking, telecommunications, technology, and research industries. Dallas’s success is built on bold leadership and innovative ideas.

Nonetheless, Dallas faces many challenges, including severe weather events, disease outbreaks, and economic disparity. These shocks and stresses have tested the Dallas’s mettle, reinforcing the city’s sense of the need to ensure that regional systems such as economic development, public health, and transportation are cross-cutting and working collaboratively to create a more resilient Dallas.
