They can't control what happens on this land. The property owner has a right to sell it to whoever they want or build whatever they want. Dallas has the final say on zoning for future development. There's nothing they can do, that's why they're freaking out.

This fight has happened before around Knox Henderson, and Dallas gave zero consideration to non Dallas resident in Highland Park, and gave zoning approval to an apartment tower.
you mean that 8-story luxury apartment tower next door to the 7 story office tower? The land around HP is just valuable as the land in it. Dallas has no obligation to zone based on HP, just as HP has often shut down development and infrastructure vital to Dallas and the region that needed to be adjacent or run under their land. This isn't a new issue.

All of the land that is in the city of Dallas, but zoned to HPISD, is just *slightly* less valuable then true park cities real estate. Which means it is expensive as hell to own and purchase.

Those homeowners and landlords in those areas will fight tooth and nail to resist any eminent domain challenges coming, and the insinuation that all the sudden there will be one because of the bond package passing is the greatest stretch I've ever seen. Parkies won't be seeng housing projects building up in those areas any time soon.

Boy I would love to know who that "truth in Texas education" person is who drafted that email. To be a fly on the wall in that Park Cities home would be fabulous...

They are talking about the North Park Gardens condos at NW Highway and Boedeker

It's really not all that exciting, but there are a few bad seeds in all towns.

Let's be honest here....... How many of you really welcome low income subsidized housing into your kids schools?

Don't forget Carrollton! Dallas loves to push its poor people out to the suburban borders so suburban school districts get to carry that burden and suburban law enforcement has to share the burden. It's no coincidence that the Richardson PD spends a great deal of time on the west Spring Valley corridor. None whatsoever.

It's one of the reasons the Cowboys are leaving Valley Ranch. But they'll never admit.

That area has seen a large increase in crime.

Yup! Dallas is definitely becoming a city of have & have nots and they'll push their problems anywhere else they can if given the opportunity.

I don't blame HP for being mad. I would be too. However, I don't buy the affordable housing story either. Isn't that land far too valuable for that?
