New Conservation Ordinance
PDF Print E-mail
 As many of you already know, the process to become a conservation district is undergoing reconstruction.  
More & more neighborhoods are looking into the protection a conservation designation can provide.  The
process has always been a difficult and often times confusing one, with many neighborhoods waiting a long  
time to hear anything back.  Hopefully some of these issues will be resolved, but it will still require due diligence
on our part for it to reach a successful conclusion.

Preservation Dallas has been holding meetings to discuss the potential changes to the Conservation District
ordinance as proposed by City of Dallas staff and the Zoning Ordinance Committee. The meetings presented
opportunities for them to collect feedback from the different Conservation Districts on the proposed ordinance. 


The Zoning Ordinance Committee were to review the final draft of the Conservation District ordinance on Thursday,
March 6th in City Hall conference room.

Though she is relatively new to the organization, joining as a representative of Kings Hwy Conservation District in 2012, she said she knows non-profits. That is what she does. Her energy & drive will be an asset to the League. She also serves as the current President of the Kings Hwy Neighborhood.
