"Johnson says the Dallas Stars' and Mavericks' leases at the American Airlines Center end in 2031, and the city should start discussions soon on how to retain them. In a memo to the city council, he says the committee will also look at the possibility of attracting both expansion teams and relocations."

The mayor of Dallas is forming a city council committee to draw professional sports franchises to the city - The “Ad Hoc Committee on Professional Sports Recruitment and Retention.”

Mayor Johnson: Honoring sacrifice and service in Dallas

"Public safety must come first because it makes everything else the city government does possible — basic services, business deals, entertainment, parks, and everything in between. Public safety must come first because police officers are critical to stopping violence and hate-motivated attacks on others. And public safety must come first because everyone deserves to live in a safe community."

Public safety is critical to our communities.

Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson’s remarks for Peace Officers Memorial Day

"You help make everything else we do in this city possible — basic services, business deals, entertainment, parks, and everything in between. And as much as today is about remembering and sharing, it’s also about gratitude.

"You have mine. And you have the support of the greatest city in the world. Your losses are our losses. You’re part of our family. And your successes mean the world to us."

Mayor Johnson addressed officers and their families Tuesday outside Dallas City Hall.

After Deadly Shootings, Dallas Plans Crack Down on Party Promoters

"We want people to have fun. We want it to be a place that’s friendly for entertainment. But, it can’t be the wild west. It just can’t," said Mayor Eric Johnson, who attended the meeting.

The City of Dallas is taking its crackdown on the planners of mass gatherings to the next level with a new ordinance being proposed Monday.

Let play begin — both day and night — as Carpenter Park opens as downtown Dallas’ largest greenspace

Yes, it was damp and chilly, but the only showers came when the park’s playful fountain burst into action after Mayor Eric Johnson declared Carpenter Park officially open.

Johnson described Carpenter as “almost six acres of parkland that we, frankly, willed into existence … a testament to that optimism, that resourcefulness and that indomitable spirit that drives the people of this great city.”

Carpenter Park must have done a verdant eye roll when early forecasts suggested a thunderstorm or two could wash out its ceremonial opening Tuesday as...

“Dallas is a great food city. But for too long, the city government has been far too restrictive to mobile food operators,” Mayor Johnson said. “I am grateful to Chairman Bazaldua and to the members of the Quality of Life, Arts, and Culture Committee for crafting more sensible regulations that encourage entrepreneurs without sacrificing food safety. Together, we are working to make Dallas more vibrant and more fun.”

Mayor Eric Johnson had made the ordinance changes a priority

Mayor Eric Johnson was among those who expressed support for the plan as is. He also said he’d be in favor of putting the matter to a vote either next Wednesday or later this month. “We’re not asking people on this council to strap on pistols, put on a badge and go out there and actually fight the crime,” Johnson said. “[Chief García’s] asking us to do what we are empowered to do. “This is what we’re empowered to do, and I hope that we do it.”

“Focusing on these priorities will make our city stronger, safer, healthier, more vibrant, and more equitable,” Mayor Johnson said. “Together, we can ensure our dynamic and growing city reaches its full potential by getting back to basics at City Hall and laying the groundwork to build for our future.”
“To build for our future, Dallas must support programs and policies that provide and promote fair, affordable, and equitable housing,” Johnson said. “By seeding the Dallas Housing Opportunity Fund, we can strengthen our neighborhoods and improve economic opportunities for all of our residents.”
"By creating an Inspector General Division, establishing clearer boundaries, and instilling a culture of ethical excellence, the City Council sent an unmistakable message to the people of Dallas: your best interests are the only interests that matter." Here is the mayor's latest newsletter:
“This vote today on ethics reform represents a sea change in the way this city does business,” Johnson said. “It’s a historic vote. It’s a monumental vote. And it’s the right thing to do to restore the public’s trust.”
“We are excited to welcome the U.S. headquarters of the world’s largest independent dermatology company to downtown Dallas and our amazing Arts District,” Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson said in a statement. “Galderma’s choice to relocate to Dallas — a growing biotech hub — highlights the strength of our city’s economy and the incredible appeal of our city center.”
