On July 11, the Oak Cliff Gateway Committee will release their preliminary ideas for rezoning the Oak Cliff Gateway at Hitt Auditorium at 7:00pm. The Gateway is roughly 800 acres south of I-30, west of I-35, east of Beckly and north of Davis. The same process is being used to rezone this property that was used last year on Bishop Davis. Members of the community were appointed by council to confer with architect Larry Good who was paid for by the development community.

The product created for Bishop Davis rezoned over 300 acres in and around the Bishop Davis corridor. Three, 4 and 5 story buildings are now allowed and, in some cases, new construction is given parking reductions while old buildings like those in Bishop Arts are given even deeper reductions.

Old buildings in Bishop Arts were already given reductions and deservedly so.  Those reductions should include even more old buildings in Oak Cliff. The League is supportive of old buildings getting a break on parking requirements. But the development community wanted more so some new buildings were given reductions and the older ones were given even more. The opening of Gloria‚Äôs demonstrates the potential for problems.
