The North Oak Cliff United Police Patrol (NOCUPP) is a Dallas Police Department Expanded Neighborhood Patrol program impacting the Kessler Park, East Kessler, Winnetka Heights, Kessler Plaza, West Kessler and Stevens Park Village neighborhoods. For $365 a year ($1 per day), residents can subscribe to the program to supplement police patrols in their neighborhoods by off-duty, uniformed officers in squad cars. NOCUPP subscribers also receive benefits such as vacation watches while they’re out of town and a dedicated cell phone number for NOCUPP police officers. An information meeting was scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 26, at Turner House, 401 N. Rosemont. For details on the program, visit northoakcliffpatrol.org.

Development

Lang Partners has begun its project at Zang and Colorado. Zang Triangle is the first new multifamily property built in Oak Cliff in some 12 years. The 260 units will lease for an average of $850 a month. Most of the units will have one bedroom, but there are a few two-bedrooms and efficiencies. It’s a 3-acre property, and the buildings will be four and five stories. There will also be 4,000 square feet of space on the ground floor facing Zang that will be set aside for “flex space”. It could be leased for professional services, office, retail or live/work space.
