The Old Oak Cliff Conservation League has set up this GoFundMe Accont for monies dedicated to amending PD 830 Subarea 6 and they will be used for that purpose.  

In 2010, over 300 acres were upzoned along Bishop and Davis.  The area was divided into 6 subareas.  Subarea 6 was the tallest and about 100 acres.  It allows for 5 story or 75 ft. tall structures, no maximum lot size and a residential proximity slope of 1:1.

We seek to ammend PD 830 Subarea 6 and change that.

Over 5000 petitioners were upset by a developers plans for the area around Davis and Zang.  The developer is only doing what the law allows him to do.  Only changing the law will change that.  Otherwise, this will continue to happen over and over.  

Over 1300 people signed a petition  to open this zoning and address these issues.  

A councilperson only gets 2 free zoning cases per year.  We must pay for this to move forward to the front of the line and we need your help.  

Please give whatever you can $10.00, $20.00, $100.00.   Your donation is tax deductible and we thank you.

Scott Griggs, Dallas City Council Dallas Morning News 6/26/15 - "The existing building stock of north Oak Cliff is in jeopardy. Local businesses, as well as residents who have lived in adjacent neighborhoods for generations, might be displaced. This threatens the very essence of the Oak Cliff/Bishop Arts character that is attracting developers from far and wide — a character that we as residents will live with long after the new developers are long gone."


Kevin Sloan, architect,  KERA on 8/7/15 - “The entire Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area as a whole is largely seen by the world as a generic city,  if Dallas is going to compete on a world stage with other North American and global cities, it needs to not turn Bishop Arts into a place that looks like everywhere else. We need to turn everywhere else into their own version of Bishop Arts.”

"Changes pledged for scorned Bishop Arts apartment project" - Roy Appleton, Dallas Morning News 6/17/15 "Whatever follows, the pictures of five-story boxes at an entryway to the Bishop Arts District have opened eyes to the reality of change. And the project has aroused interest in engaging developers and protecting neighborhoods."
