The Gastonwood – Coronado Hills Neighborhood Association hosted a candidate forum at the Trinity Lutheran Church on Gaston tonight. Each candidate had the opportunity to speak and take questions for 20 minutes.
Residents asked questions about crime, code enforcement, and revitalizing surrounding commercial areas.
Mike DeGroot was our host for this meet and greet. A very diverse group of residents attended, including some who had been there over forty years, as well as relative newcomers. We enjoyed good food and conversation, and discussed the strong mayor initiative, code enforcement, and crime.
This evening I attended the Gastonwood – Coronado Hills neighborhood association meeting. The meeting focused on code enforcement, and the challenges that neighborhoods face when dealing with code issues.
The City of Dallas’ neighborhood liaison from the Code Enforcement Department came to the meeting, and answered questions about garage sales, commercial signage in residential yards, and bulk trash.
I ended my evening visiting with Gastonwood/Coronado Hills residents at their holiday party at La Calle Doce on Skillman. We had a great time talking about the strong mayor debate, code enforcement, and the importance of strong neighborhoods. (And the impending need get those Christmas presents wrapped!)
