Business View Magazine is spotlighting Balch Springs, Texas in an exclusive feature titled “Growing a community” – part of the magazine’s focus on Economic and Community Development in U.S. Cities.
Getting into a city on the ground floor can have exciting prospects for dedicated and patient people, it can also have definite rewards and a great return on your investment. The City of Balch Springs, Texas is a sea of opportunity just waiting for people and companies to jump in and explore everything it has to offer – while watching and helping it continue to evolve and prosper.
Although small, Balch Springs is anything but sleepy. This city of 26,000 is growing at a quick pace, with people migrating from all over the United States who are slowly discovering the benefits of living in suburban Texas. Benefits that include marginal cost of living increases, low home costs, low property tax, and the fact that Texas has no state tax. The rewards for people who consider moving to Balch Springs, and companies who locate there, are endless. What is not to love about easy access to interstates, close proximity to Dallas for the big city vibe, and the sheer joy of getting outside and strolling, jogging, hiking, or biking on some of the town’s many trails and walking paths.
For the past eight years, Balch Springs City Manager, Susan Cluse, has advocated for and guided the city council through a strategic community growth plan and much of her work is coming to fruition with projects springing up all throughout the nine square mile city. She declares, “Balch Springs is a residential community, a really small town. It has farms. There are people who have been here for years and many who are new and loving it. We have a lot of growth, but we’re monitoring that growth to make sure we grow wisely and sustainably. People are starting to take notice of Balch Springs and that is great!”
More good news… the city recently struck a deal with Bloomfield Developments to build a new 173-acre housing development with more than 400 homes and a wide range of housing opportunities, including a seniors’ living facility, housing for veterans, multi-family homes, and single detached homes with price points from $200,000 to $400,000. In order to steer responsible growth, attract a skilled workforce, and meet the demands of a diverse demographic, the city needs houses to offer. “So, we have a lot of housing on the go,” says Cluse. “While preparing for the growth around us, we’re mostly focusing on residential housing, but also looking toward more industrial expansion. And we want to sprinkle in some retail, family dining, and entertainment for families.”
