Because it is 90% low income, I oppose this zoning change request that is up for discussion at today's hearing.
The property owner should build single family homes or sell the property.
Southern Dallas continues to be inundated with low income multifamily housing, and we want to promote home ownership instead.
With the current racial reckoning, you should listen to the wants and needs of the community, and we do not need anything else that negatively affects our property values and fails to attract major grocery stores, restaurants and retailers. We want to decide what kind of rooftops we get over here.
We want equity. It is time for North Dallas and the surrounding suburbs to provide affordable housing. You cannot keep dumping all of the undesirable projects south of I-30 like the things below: Charter Schools
Cement Batch Plants
Group Homes/Halfway Houses
Blue Ridge Housing Development: https://www.nbcdfw.com/news/local/neighbors-say-fears-of-dallas-housing-development-came-true/2414860/
Low Income Apartments with Tax Credits
Homeward Bound Drug Rehab Center
The Proposed Deflection Center at Homeward Bound in Singing Hills
Mental Health Clinics
Recycling Centers, Landfills and Transfer Stations
We also do not like the Early Notification process for zoning cases. The notification area is too small, the response time is too short, and the entire process victimizes seniors and the poor, as we do not have the resources to hire lawyers and expert witnesses to put up an effective legal fight. Most neighborhoods now have organized leaders (HOAs, crime watch groups, neighborhood associations, etc.), so it should be mandatory for these leaders to receive the Early Notifications. We are registered with Planning and Urban Design (PUD).
Again, I urge you to do the right thing for District 8 and Southern Dallas.
