ARLINGTON, TX-Following announcement of a $693,000 award from the Texas Enterprise Fund, Arlington has begun preparing for the next and final step in the process of bringing the headquarters of the US Bowling Congress to the city. The organization proposes to build a $14-million complex, with office space for about 200 employees and a 12-to-16-lane combined equipment testing and international training center on a site at 621 Six Flags Dr.

Arlington was in competition with Milwaukee for the project. The organization is currently headquartered in the Milwaukee suburb of Greendale, WI. “The Texas Enterprise Fund award was a critical factor in our decision,” says Kevin Dornberger, USBC COO. “Relocating our headquarters to Arlington will provide a business climate that will be invaluable in helping us achieve our future goals for the sport.”

The Arlington City Council is expected to vote on an estimated $225,000 in local incentives next month. According to Arlington economic development manager Robert Sturns, the city will also seek State Enterprise Zone Project designation, which could provide additional state incentives up to $300,000. “This project is a direct result of some very strong partnerships,” says Sturns. “This is a great win for the state, city and entire region.”
