A Must Read from The Dallas Morning News: A shotgun wedding 40 years ago spurred the D/FW economic bonanza we have today

In the event you missed this, I think this is a must read for a number of reasons.  First and foremost, North Texas would not be where it is today and basically allows us to be a port city without the water.  The article touches on some history, the present and going forward.  As I recall, we are one of only 7 cities in the U.S.  that have two or more commercial airports.  With the lifting of the Wright Amendment in October of this year, Love Field, in addition to providing a new and improved gateway to Downtown, will become another arrow in our economic development quiver adding value and benefits for companies that will be relocating to our community and increased services to those of us already here.

My oh my, how time does fly (no pun intended).    We are very fortunate to live in Big D.   2014 is starting off with lots of good news taking up where last year left off with a few unsolved opportunities still in the mix.   Thank you for your continuing commitment to Downtown Dallas.  We tend to look at Downtown as part of the future and not the past.  As I mention from time to time, the best is yet to come!!
