Mission Statement

To encourage and promote desirable commercial and retail development in a manner that supports and enhances the community's character and quality of life.

The City of Glenn Heights is a growing bedroom community of approximately 13,000 residents located in both Dallas and Ellis County. Recently awarded the Governor’s Community Achievement Award for Keep Glenn Heights Beautiful, Glenn Heights is positioned along the busy transportation corridor of IH-35E. While our community provides a serene setting away from the pressures of a more urban environment, Glenn Heights is located less than 20 miles from downtown Dallas, and 30 miles from the Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport. Accessibility, location, and an excellent quality of life make Glenn Heights a desirable place to live and do business.

The City of Glenn Heights is committed to the promotion, retention and recruitment of high quality development within the City of Glenn Heights and to better the quality of life for its citizens. These objectives can often be attained by the enhancement and expansion of the local economy. To meet these objectives, the City of Glenn Heights will, on a case-by-case basis, consider providing economic development incentives to aid in the stimulation of economic development in Glenn Heights.
