Ft. Worth Ave. Development Group and the Sylvan/Thirty Project
PDF Print E-mail

The following letter is from the President of the Ft. Worth Ave. Development Group on current developments surrounding the Sylvan/Thirty project.

There seems to be some confusion in the community as to the Fort Worth Avenue Development Group’s position on the Sylvan/Thirty development, which we all as a community are eager to see launched.

The Sylvan/Thirty project has the potential to be a flagship development for our neighborhoods, and FWADG has worked very hard alongside the Oaxaca team for several years to bring this project to fruition. FWADG worked diligently to assist in the land parcel acquisition and was a primary player alongside Oaxaca Interests in the 2009 charrette that helped define a new look for Sylvan Avenue from the I30 intersection to Singleton Ave. and the adjoining properties to the north, south, east, and west of Sylvan.

Turner House Grant
PDF Print E-mail

At our August 8th meeting, the OOCCL Board of Directors voted to grant Turner House $1900 toward Phase III of their roof repairs.  In November 2010, OOCCL granted Turner House $10,000 towards Phase II.  There are 5 phases in all.  Turner House has launched an aggressive fundraising campaign with their Salon Series as well as qualifying for a recent grant from the Hoblitzelle Foundation.  They are well on their way to completing the repairs to ensure the mansion's continued success.  

The League is proud to continue to contribute towards making sure this long time League partner and Oak Cliff landmark are around for many years to come.
