PROJECT, PLANNING, AND PERFORMANCE

The Project, Planning and Performance Disciplines Systems (P3) is the Town’s new management process, which combines a sophisticated software program that is driven by significant input from Town staff.

P3 enables us to track measurable indicators against Council’s Strategic Goals

The P3 process has made a significant and positive impact on our ability to stay on task and focused on goals

It is a fluid scorecard of how the Town is doing

Another outstanding example of Addison innovation and creativity in finding ways to improve our processes and make local government more efficient

DART

BACKGROUND

Addison has been a long time member and contributor to DART based on the commitment and promise for us to have a commuter rail line that runs along the Cotton Belt.

The Cotton Belt Line (CBL) is an important part of the economic vitality of our entire region

Connectivity: The CBL would become the backbone of the transportation corridor, linking the far eastern parts of north Texas with DFW Airport and Fort Worth—passing right through the heart of Addison

Council and Town are focused on, and investing a great amount time and effort in this process creating a solid, strong, active coalition

It’s time to bring Cotton Belt trains to Addison! We have a very important role for you to play:

Please fill out the form left on your seat, and stop by the registration table before you leave tonight to learn more!

EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS

COLLABORATIVE ADAPTIVE SENSING OF THE ATMOSPHERE (CASA) RADAR

CASA radar system will be online within the next 30-60 days and will be able to help us more accurately detect and provide earlier warnings for severe weather

Locating the radar near the Addison Airport was an ideal site for the National Weather Service, who sought out Addison as a perfect location 

Addison will become the first Dallas County location for CASA

FIRST CALL: EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION SYSTEM

It’s critical for all of us to be aware during severe weather or emergency situations.

Town goal is to register all residents and businesses for First Call, which should reduce emergency or severe weather calls to our 911 operators

Residents and businesses can opt -in to receive alerts via phone, text or email—or ALL THREE!

Please Register for our Emergency Notification System at www.addisontx.gov
