Walmart Neighborhood Store in N. Oak Cliff

News of a new Walmart Neighborhood Store was met with mixed reviews last week.  Located on the land of the former Colorado Place Apts, no site plan has been made available to determine if the store will comply with walkable zoning put in place by the Ft. Worth Ave. Development Group. 

Acres of land was acquired 2 years ago and the apartments were demolished only to be followed by the developer going bankrupt following much fanfare and pretty watercolors to the contrary.  The site is one of the largest available tracts that is still available in the North Oak Cliff area and many hoped someone with vision would develop the entire area as previously promised rather than sell it off a bit at a time to folks like Walmart.

At the April 6th Dallas City Council meeting, District 1 Councilwoman Delia Jasso will be honoring League President Michael Amonett with a Special Recognition in front of the Council.  This is in recognition of his essay that won North Oak Cliff the distinction of being the best place in the State of Texas to buy an old house according to a contest sponsored by This Old House and Preservation Directory.com.  That issue will be online in March.

Thank you very much for this honor to Ms. Jasso.  The Special Recognition portion of the Council meeting begins at 9:00am on April 6th in the council chambers.  All are welcome.
