There are many neighborhoods housing architectural treasures that don't have a historical designation. This means that valuable pieces of history can be torn down for new developments. These structures go on our "At-Risk" list. The Risk List was an idea borrowed from The National Trust for Historic Preservation and Preservation Dallas’ List of Endangered Historic Places, with a focus on Oak Cliff, during a time when economic development was on the forefront and zoning changes were under debate. Publishing the Architecture at Risk list, specifically for Oak Cliff, is our way of educating and bringing public awareness to the potential loss of historic, architecturally significant or iconic buildings and places in our own community.
