Financial Transparency :: Economic Development

Transparency Star Economic DevelopmentEconomic Development agreements are supported by tax dollars and are designed to attract new growth, improve and enhance the local economy, and create jobs in the area.

In recent years, in an effort to improve the transparency of its Economic Development program, the City of Arlington has worked to create and improve the reporting of its economic development agreements. With the implementation of the Transparency Stars program by the State Comptroller of Public Accounts, there is now a standard of excellence that the City of Arlington has now achieved.
