I’m not sure that Cliffite Jason Roberts has enough to do. He heads up boards of both the Oak Cliff Transit Authority and the Texas Theatre/Oak Cliff Foundation, performs in the band The Happy Bullets, chairs the Oak Cliff Chamber of Commerce’s alternative transportation committee, maintains both a personal blog and the Bike Friendly Oak Cliff blog, and helps organize all kinds of neighborhood events, like this month’s Oak Cliff Art Crawl.
And if you remember from one of Rob Shearer’s past Advocate columns, Roberts decided late last year to launch an effort to build a Stevie Ray Vaughn statue at Lake Cliff Park. He recently started a new blog devoted to the cause, which includes the announcement that Bolsa restaurant manager Chris Jeffers has signed on to head up the statue project.
After the jump, a YouTube video from Roberts with progress on the statue’s lettering:
