Town hall meeting regarding Cliff Manor is June 21

A proposal to create quarters for 100 homeless people at Cliff Manor is unpopular with some Fort Worth Avenue neighbors.
Mayor Tom Leppert and representatives from the Dallas Housing Authority and the Metro Dallas Homeless Alliance will lead a June 21 meeting about the plan.

Business and property owners along Fort Worth Avenue are encouraged to participate. The meeting is from 6:30-8 p.m. at Methodist hospital’s Hitt Auditorium.

    This is absolutely absurd! Oak Cliff does not need the title ‘Slums of Dallas’. Did they even take into consideration of the surrounding area? We are talking about walking distance of two public Dallas ISD schools. ONE OF WHICH IS AN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL! I for one am beyond disappointed that they would even propose to alter this community in such a way. My hair dresser is located at Cliff Manor. I have been getting my haircut there ever since I was a child. It would sadden me to find such a negative change implemented at Cliff Manor. With all due respect Mr. Mayor, can you and the Dallas Housing Authority take this project elsewhere?

    This is absurd. I am so against this. I have lived in Oak Cliff all my life. Was born and raised here & making this facility a homeless living shelter, will definitely not better the neighborhood. I can just see what will come if this does get approved.
