Long-time Arlington City Council member and community leader Lana Wolff has received the Dream Builder award from the Downtown Arlington Management Corporation and DAMC premier partner, Texas Trust Credit Union. The award was presented at the DAMC annual meeting on September 6, 2017.
DAMC Board Member Debi Knoblock, Assistant Vice President of Relationships and Opportunity at Texas Trust, presented the Dream Builder award to Wolff. Texas Trust conceived the award and worked with DAMC to establish it in 2016 as a way to honor citizens who have had a significant and positive impact on the Downtown Arlington community.
“We’re very grateful to our friends at Texas Trust,” said Aldo Fritz, President and CEO of the Downtown Arlington Management Corporation, “for their support of DAMC and recognition of those individuals like Lana who have given so much to Downtown Arlington."
Council member Lana Wolff has served the Arlington community for much of her career. Wolff’s tireless efforts for economic revitalization were instrumental in the formation of downtown’s first stakeholder entity, Downtown Arlington, Inc., and in 1995, she was its first Executive Director. Later, she became the Vice President of Economic Development for the Arlington Chamber of Commerce before being elected to City Council in 2003.
As District 5 representative, Wolff’s constituency groups include downtown entities such as the Central Library, UT Arlington and the Arlington Cultural District. Her volunteer service is wide-reaching, including the Arlington Historical Society, Junior League of Arlington and the Arlington Chamber of Commerce.
“Arlington is home base for Texas Trust and we are proud to be connected with the DAMC,” said Knoblock. “Through the Dream Builder award, we can shine a light on what is going on with the DAMC and highlight the people that are making Arlington the American Dream City.”
