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.

The DDO is accepting applications for a new Façade Improvement Program to assist commercial property owners in the Downtown Garland Historic District with improvements to the outward appearance of their buildings. See more information on the Facade Improvement Program page.
