JOBS, JOBS, JOBS – THE RICHARDSON TELECOM HAS EMPLOYERS AND JOBS…
According to the City of Richardson website, Richardson was chartered in 1873 and was generally situated between present-day Greer and Phillips streets on the north and south, and between Central Expressway and Greenville Avenue on the west and east, although a small segment did lie west of Central Expressway’s present alignment.
Originally, there were three businesses: a general store, a post office and a drug store. Today the City is no longer the bedroom community of the ’50s and ’60s, but is itself at the heart of a significant employment center, the Telecom Corridor© area. More than 88,000 people work in the City of Richardson each day at over 17,000 businesses. Some of the major employers are Cisco, Texas Instruments, Raytheon, Fossil, Lennox International, Mary Kay and more.
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.
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.
