Downtown Residents Council

This evening I spoke with the Downtown Residents Council about the upcoming projects to improve our central business district: the Master Plan for Downtown Parks, the new grocery store, the new DART rail alignment, and new mixed-use developments.

After I graduated from law school, my husband and I became urban pioneers, living in downtown Dallas for two years – in the old Titche-Goettinger/Joske’s building (now known as 1900 Elm). Living in such an urban environment, I saw firsthand the need for revitalization to create a livable downtown neighborhood.

I am committed to redeveloping our downtown, and will continue to work towards creating the residential “critical mass” needed to spur further development. It is crucial that downtown become home to more rental and owner-occupied housing, restaurants, and retail development.

In addition, we must consider creating a Local Government Corporation to further our goals downtown.
