We may get to the point where the basic infrastructure around the river, as well as lots of residential in adjacent neighborhoods will basically push the park as a whole forward.
Indeed. In fact, I'm going to post a thread on what I believe is a significant factor.

The whole thing got sidetracked by the tollroad proponents, IMO. Now they have no tollroad and no park. But I too think the park will evolve and maybe it will actually turn out better in that genesis.

But you don't want the toll road. Indeed, it will turn out better. People living on both sides of the river will make it work. Braes bayou in Houston has two parkways on both sides, but that is all ushering out from the downtown area of Houston. What Dallas wants to do is build something parallel to the levees of the river something which has basically already failed as a concept in Monterrey, Mexico. A lot of hard work can both find a better solution and save the taxpayer a lot of money.

Burying 345 downtown and completing that other subway at Knox - Henderson are better ideas

The Knox-Henderson station got derailed by a few overzealous and IMO self-appointed neighborhood leaders. I was active in the Cochran Heights NA and many of us were for the station, then we find out in the media that "Cochran Heights opposes"....

John what we are discussing can make or break some of the major new developments - and really the history of the infrastructure set-ups is an ongoing factor in our "metropolis".

I recognize that, my question was sources of reporting on new DFW area developments. I have some experience in this business. I asked a focus question, some, including me, get off track to their own amusement. Dont be so sensitive, I was trying to direct the discussion back my question, no harm in thanking those who addressed it is there?
