Grow South Annual Progress Report

Posted in: Big Tex Blog, News and Information.

As a long-time resident of the Southern Sector of Dallas, the State Fair of Texas is proud to partner with Mayor Mike Rawlings of the City Dallas to support the Grow South Plan and the 2018 State of Grow South annual progress report.

Grow South is a comprehensive strategy to build a foundation for sustainable growth and outline five key projects that we believe can jumpstart growth in key areas. The City of Dallas has presented a work plan that targets economic growth, neighborhoods, education, development, and jobs in the Southern Sector of Dallas. This is important to the State Fair, since we are involved in many of these initiatives with our partners.

The 2018 Grow South Film was included in the 6th Annual Grow South report presented by Mayor Mike Rawlings on May 24, 2018 at the Trinity Forest Golf Course. Visit for more information.
