State of City

Mayor Kenneth Woods delivers Dallas State of the City address.

Good afternoon and thank you for inviting me to share with you my first State of the City Address.

Today I will talk about some accomplishments throughout the last year and our goals with a bit of my visions for the year ahead. I would also like to highlight a few of the smaller accomplishments that sometimes go unseen, the accomplishments that are often not always recognized. It is these small accomplishments and achievements that bring us closer to our objective, closer to the big picture – closer to becoming a city that effectively enables growth through advanced planning and implementation of needed infrastructure improvements, delivers the services our citizens need, want and are willing to support, closer to a city where the Downtown Development Commission and Economic Development Commission respond to the changing needs of the economy and are active in development and redevelopment activities, closer to a city that provides safe and reliable drinking water, sewage disposal, storm drainage and transportation systems, and lastly to becoming a city that will ensure public safety by protecting people and property.
