Oak Cliff: Some of the best streets in the city

Attending the summit this morning also reminded me of something Mayor Pro Tem Elba Garcia told me recently: Dallas City Council District 1’s streets rank fourth among all 14 Dallas council districts with a score of 90 percent satisfactory.

Fourth place may not sound like a whole lot to write home about — it earns only a green ribbon, if that, at most competitions. But as Garcia pointed out, when you consider that the highest-rated streets are in northernmost District 12, "which is pretty much new," and that District 1 is "the oldest," then fourth is pretty good.

Councilman Dave Neumann‘s District 3 had an average ranking, tying for eighth place. You can view this year’s ratings as well as past ratings for all 14 districts here.
