Streetcars in Oak Clif
PDF Print E-mail

At our general membership meeting, the League voted to send a letter of support to the Mayor and City Council that Oak Cliff be included in any future streetcar configuration.  No particular route has been identified at this time and we do not endorse one.  The League asks only for Oak Cliff to be included at this time. 

The streetcar was an instrumental part of Oak Cliff in the past and can be the same in the future.

The letter of support is here.

PDF Print E-mail

Edwin Cabinass and the Kessler Theater have applied for Davis Garden TIF funding to help with the restoration of the theater.  The League supplied a letter of support for the Kessler in October here.  Hopefully this important project will receive the funding it needs.  Plans are underway to landmark the structure and restore the facade to its orginal theater appearance complete with marquee and lettering down the side of the building. 

Details about the Davis TIF project and all the proposed recipients are located here. 

Thank you!

We'd like to take a moment to thank all the sponsors, homeowners, volunteers and patrons for this year's Home Tour.

Even with the cold, the clouds and the rain, the tour brought in $26,000.  Once all the details are settled, we'll know how much money we have available for grants next year.

A special thank you to tour co-chairs, Vicki Fitzgerald and Judi Glazer for all their hard work and energy that they put in all year that went to make the weekend go off without a hitch.  Thank you!

In case you missed the tour, here is some video posted on the Advocate's blog here.
Clyde Greenhouse DMN Editorial

League member, Clyde Greehouse addressed the current plight of local farmer's markets in the Dallas area in an editorial in the October 16th issue of the Dallas Morning News.

The humble farmers market has come a long way in these challenging economic times, and the value of this simple business model is shining more than ever.

From coast to coast and all over North Texas, more than 5,000 of these markets operate – a 70 percent increase in the last decade. You can give some credit to the federal "Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food" initiative or first lady Michelle Obama's support of a farmers market in the shadows of the White House.
