Arapaho Strip Revitalization 2023

Donation protected
Established in 2000, the Estates West Neighborhood Association (EWNA) is a volunteer organization representing homeowners in the North Dallas community of Estates West which consists of 640 homes. We are also a non-profit organization.

Our association has undertaken an initiative to revitalize the "Arapaho Strip" which is the 1,250-foot right-of-way on the north side of Arapaho Road, west of Spring Creek, and east of La Avenida. It serves as both an important sound and safety barrier for the Estates West neighborhood. As part of an agreement with the City of Dallas, the association assumed responsibility for the planting, maintenance, and irrigation of the landscaping along the right-of-way in 2000. More than 22 years later, several of the shrubs are dead or dying, the irrigation system needs to be repaired and upgraded, and the landscaping around the Estates West entrance signs needs to be replaced and updated.

Funding for the project will be the sole responsibility of Estates West homeowners and the association. The scope of work will include pruning the shrubs along the right-of-way and replacing ones that are dying or dead with new plants appropriate for our North Texas climate. This initiative will also ensure compliance with the City of Dallas' visibility requirements on both ends of the Arapaho strip by pruning the shrubs to a height of 36 inches, and 40 feet from each corner. Also included in the initiative will be new xeriscape landscaping and other enhancements around the entrance signs into the Estates West neighborhood.

The appearance of the Arapaho strip is a representation of every homeowner in Estates West and shows the commitment each of us has to the beautification of our community. Please show your commitment to our community by donating to this worthy cause today.

Crowdfunding will be a key fundraising method utilized by the association to fund this project. Contributions in support of this initiative and our community would be greatly appreciated.
