    1. Historic Alamo Courts Signage   

It's a story everyone knows.  

1. Owner demolishes aging motor court for future development and promises the preservation community to preserve the iconic sign on the property.

2. Owner begins floating ideas about moving the sign off the property and the preservation community, the public and the press reminds him he would not.

3. Owner says he will salvage the sign rather than preserve it and scatter it's parts across the development which in effect would destroy the sign.

All of Oak Cliff wants to support the Sylvan/Thirty development and wants it to succeed.  Much of Oak Cliff wants the Alamo sign preserved, in itact and on the historic roadway.  

There is still time to do the right thing and listen to the wishes of the community and have a happy ending.

The beautiful sign is imprisoned only a few blocks away.

Peacemaker Award
PDF Print E-mail
 

Ed Meyer from Dallas Residents at Risk presented the Old Oak Cliff Conservation League with a plaque they received from the Dallas Peace Center. As co-organization-winners, both OOCCL & the Dallas Residents at Risk were given the award for their participation in successfully raising awareness about the dangers of hydraulic fracking and the risk it posses to people and the environment.

By raising awareness both organizations have promoted dialog and understanding between the commercial business and residence within the affected areas.  This in turn has impacted the City of Dallas ordinance concerning gas drilling and fracking making it only possible to drill if proven to be safe within a specific area on a case by case basis.
