Oak Lawn Realtors Meeting

It was a pleasure to meet with realtors from Oak Lawn this morning at Texas Land and Cattle on Lemmon. Abio AHK’s McKinney Avenue office hosted the meeting, and I was invited to discuss the Dallas Homeowners League.

DHL is a non-profit, umbrella organization for neighborhood groups in Dallas. Since 1968, it has helped neighborhood groups work together to develop positions, proposals, processes, and projects that improve the integrity, strength and voice of Dallas neighborhoods.

As DHL’s executive vice president, I spoke to the realtors about some of DHL’s past successes and current projects. But the primary focus of my talk was DHL’s resources that are available to help home buyers improve their neighborhoods, including crime watch training, traffic calming workshops, and zoning seminars.

Dallas Homeowners League Board Meeting

I attended my last Dallas Homeowners League board meeting tonight. Because I am running for city council, I am focusing all my energies on the race and resigning from the DHL board. It has been a privilege to serve on the DHL board as executive vice president. DHL is a non-profit, umbrella organization for neighborhood groups in Dallas. Since 1968, it has helped neighborhood groups work together to develop positions, proposals, processes, and projects that improve the integrity, strength and voice of Dallas neighborhoods.

While serving on the DHL board, I’ve helped train neighborhoods to create successful communities, to organize crime watches, to reduce neighborhood traffic, and to address zoning and TABC issues. I’ve also successfully fought to stop businesses that sell alcohol from locating too close to schools and churches.

I thank my fellow board members for their support as I work to ensure we have a strong neighborhood voice on city council.
