The city's pitch: "The town borders on the Trinity River on the east, Lancaster city limits on the west, Dallas city limits on the north, and Wilmer city limits on the south. Hutchins is only 10 miles from bustling downtown Dallas, by limited-access six-lane freeway. Hutchins is a small but attractive part of the Dallas metropolitan area, but with its strategic geographical location and adequate utilities, land, railroad, and interstate highways, it is certain to play a major role in the continued growth of Dallas County. Hutchins Economic Development Corporation welcomes all inquiries from interested individuals, developers, or businesses seeking to do business in the City of Hutchins."
