Garland Economic Development Partnership

Garland has been a city of partnerships from the very beginning.

GEDP

This was especially true in 1995 when the Garland Economic Development Partnership (GEDP) formally connected the City of Garland, the Garland Independent School District and the Garland Chamber of Commerce in an effort to build a sustainable economy. This is a uniquely structured organization that has been directly responsible for the growth of more than $1.5 billion in new commercial tax base and the addition of more than 18,000 jobs.

The Garland Chamber is primarily responsible for business retention and small business development efforts, with a goal to provide resources and support, and to continuously convey the advantages of doing business in Garland. All economic development activities are overseen by twelve steering committee members, including four representatives from each partner.

Helping to achieve the goal of an economically viable and sustainable Garland is a distinguished group of more than 40 private business investors, who give annual financial and leadership support, and have chosen to join hands in the never-ending task of enhancing the community of Garland through quality growth and retention. We salute all our partners in their resolve to work together in achieving our community’s common goals.
