It’s time for neighbors to give feedback on the 2012 bond program to find out what Far North Dallas will get out of it. We talked with District 12 council member Sandy Greyson about it back in February for our Notes from City Hall feature in the magazine when discussions arose about the city’s biggest needs.
Last week, city manager Mary Suhm proposed a $600 million bond package that includes funding for “complete streets” and high-priority, on-street bike lanes in Oak Cliff and West Dallas. The largest chunk of change will go to flood control, then street repairs, and what’s left-over will be for an economic development project in South Dallas. The DMN covered the details on its City Hall blog last week.
Street repairs do include about $12 million in funding for alley reconstruction, which is definitely needed up here. The town-hall meetings in Far North Dallas are as follows:
7-8:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 19 at Timberglen Recreation Center
7-8:30 p.m. Thursday, June 21 at Renner Frankford Library
7-8:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 26 at Campbell Green Recreation Center
For those who live in District 11, there’s only one date scheduled, and it’s combined with the District 13 meeting at 6:30 p.m. Monday, June 18 at Hillcrest High School in Preston Hollow.
