      A Good Day for the Planet – and the City

The 16th Oak Cliff Earth Day on April 16th in Lake Cliff Park was a big success. In addition to great music, lots of helpful information and the dedication of a 175-year-old tree, your own HOC had a well-attended booth. We shared info about our organization, upcoming events, sold mugs and books, and had visitors register for free memberships.

The Fort Worth Avenue Development Group also had a booth to raise awareness of their initiative to refurbish the abandoned Western Heights Cemetery where Clyde Barrow (of Bonnie and Clyde) is buried, among veterans from the Civil War and the World Wars.

      Sprouts Approved for Oak Cliff       

From Council Member Chad West:

Neighborhood leaders and friends,

I’m happy to report that the Sprouts zoning matter proposed for the corner of Fort Worth Avenue and Hampton Road was unanimously approved by the Dallas City Council. In the months since the City Plan Commission denied the zoning application, neighborhood leaders and I continued to work with the applicant to seek the additional concessions noted in the Motion, and I appreciate my colleagues on City Council supporting these efforts. 

Special thanks to the following individuals:

  • D1 Plan Commissioner Amanda Popken
  • Katherine Homan, Fort Worth Avenue Development Group President, and the entire FWADG team
  • David Preziosi, representative for Stevens Park Village
  • Jeff Herrington, architect of the community survey and representative of Stevens Park Estates
  • Rebecca Mohr, President of El Tivoli neighborhood
  • Jane Hamilton, neighbor who assisted with community engagement
  • Brian Maynard, Tim Herfel, Trudy Newton, and Kris Butler, who appeared in person or virtually today (in addition to several of the folks above) to speak in favor of the revised site plan and conditions
  • The 1480 neighbors within 3 miles of the site who took the community survey and attended meetings

Sprouts has not updated me on their timeline for construction – the D1 office will keep everyone informed as more information develops. 

Thank you!
