You Gave Local – and We Thank You

The HOC NTX Giving Day campaign for 2023 is over, and it was a big success. You guys clicked a lot of big red hearts over the last three weeks (the heart above is not clickable, by the way). While we didn't quite reach our goal, we did raise a lot of money ($7,808!), all of which will go to our grant program to create positive local change that you will see down the road.

Congratulations to you all, plus a special shout-out to our Fundraising Chair Mike Matthews. Not only did he send out dozens of personal emails and thank-yous, but he also made a substantial personal donation that accounts for almost 1/3 of our success.

Thanks again, amazing neighbors and friends, and start saving up for next year!

The Fall Home Tour is back!

Join us for a incredible tour of houses in Oak Cliff!

    Celebrating the Turner House and the OCSFA

The Oak Cliff Society of Fine Arts Annual Membership Celebration was held June 15th at the Turner House. The mission of the OCSFA is to promote art and culture, and provide responsible stewardship of the Turner House, and this members-only event was a celebration of another year of great work. To say the OSCFA has the full support of Heritage Oak Cliff is a big understatement. Our two organizations are partners in making Oak Cliff a special place for all. Congrats!

More Details on the Recent Short-Term Rental Ban

On June 14, 2023, the Dallas City Council decided to ban short-term rental properties in single-family neighborhoods, including Oak Cliff. Enforcement won't begin for six months, but it's important to understand that short-term rentals (STRs) will still be allowed in certain areas and under certain conditions. As Council member Chad West said, "A compromise solution is the way to go. An outright ban is not." The following are some of the exceptions to the ban and some of the new rules:

    • STRs can only be in commercial and multi-family zoned areas.
    • An on-site parking space is needed for each bedroom (limited to three guests per bedroom).
    • Each STR is limited to a max of 12 people.
    • STRs are limited to 3% of the apartment units for complexes over 20 units, and none allowed in complexes of 20 units or less.
    • The STR must be registered and in good standing with the city, and their HOT taxes must be current.
