Date: November 2004
Creator: Weinstein, Bernard L. & Clower, Terry L.
Description: This report discusses the DART systems' sales tax revenues.

By contrast, for many non-DART suburban cities, taxable sales continued to expand during the 2001-2003 period.

An Overview of the Dallas-Fort Worth Area's Long-Term Water and Transportation Needs

Date: March 2004
Creator: Weinstein, Bernard L. & Clower, Terry L.
Description: This report gives an overview of the Dallas-Fort Worth area's long-term water and transportation needs.

Despite the foresightedness of the region's leaders, according to the Texas Water Development Board the region may soon find itself facing a water deficit. This report, by the University of North Texas Center for Economic Development and Research, examines the implications of the DFW area's long-term water and transportation needs.
