Comprehensive Plan Workshop – Westmoreland DART Station Area

Tonight’s Comp Plan workshop focused on transit-oriented development around DART stations in general, and specifically the Westmoreland light rail station in southwest Dallas. The consensus from workshop participants was to create residential, retail, and commercial development around the station. This would encourage the use of public transportation, lessen our dependence on cars, reduce pollution, and alleviate traffic congestion. Mockingbird Station, located in District 14, is a great model for this type of development.
