Richardson is one of the most conveniently located communities in the Metroplex, with access to points in all directions via both major roadways and the DART rail system.
The north and southbound Central Expressway (US75), the main artery of the City of Dallas, transverses the City. Interstate 635, also called LBJ Freeway, is to its immediate south and the Bush Turnpike spans the northern border of the City, giving Richardson residents easy access to points east and west. Richardson hosts four DART light rail stations: at Spring Valley, Arapaho, Galatyn Park and Bush Turnpike.
Though an inner ring suburb, Richardson continues to be a vibrant community, kept current by the Richardson City Council’s emphasis on economic development and neighborhood integrity. Voter-approved bond programs in 2006 and 2010 have contributed to the maintenance and improvement of the City’s infrastructure as well as its quality of life.
The 2006 bond election brought construction of a new recreation center on the east side of the City, as well as new ballfield complexes at Huffhines and Breckinridge parks. A new fire station was reconstructed on the west side to replace an aging, outdated public service facility.
In 2010, voters approved funding for a new fire station on the east side of the City and construction of a new recreation and aquatics center on the west side and new construction of a gymnastics center centrally located on Arapaho Road, just east of Central Expressway.
But Richardson isn’t only about living and working. The City also has a statewide reputation as a great place to play, with the nationally recognized Wildflower! Festival held each May and the highly regarded Cottonwood Arts Festival held the first weekend of each May and October. The City of Richardson is the envy of its suburban neighbors with its state-of-the-art Eisemann Center for Performing Arts which opened to high acclaim in 2002 and continues to bring nationally recognized entertainers and shows to the area each year through its Eisemann Center Presents series while offering a first-rate facility for local arts groups and corporations.
The City of Richardson has been recognized for its economic stability and strong fiscal management by credit rating agencies, with both Standard and Poor’s and Moody’s giving the City their highest ratings.
