Good Neighbor Initiative

In 2022, 24HourDallas is going to unroll a nighttime economy quality-of-life initiative in partnership with soon-to-be-announced sponsors.

The Good Neighbor Initiative will be a voluntary accreditation program for nighttime and social businesses and events (hotels, bars, restaurants, concert venues, convenience stores, arts and cultural organizations, festivals, etc.) in the City of Dallas.

To be awarded the credential, the business or organization will be required to meet certain objectives that address:

  • Human and Sex Trafficking
  • Employee Substance Abuse
  • Racial Equity
  • Code/Ordinance Compliance
  • Fire Code Compliance
  • TABC Compliance
  • Health Department Compliance
  • Responsible Beverage Service
  • Women’s Safety
  • Hate Crimes
  • Employee Liability

The businesses and the business districts in which the businesses operate will also be measured on participation in these areas:

  • Proactive Policing Partnership Program
  • Nighttime Placemaking Measures
  • Ambassadors
  • Introduction of Cultural Activity

Businesses that receive the renewable Good Neighbor credential will be recognized in public ways.

Business districts that have 100% nighttime business participation will also receive recognition as destinations that are safe, respectful, inclusive, and vibrant for residents and visitors.

We look forward to telling you more about our signature initiative.
