A panel of Oak Cliff residents has been working out plans to rezone the Oak Cliff gateway. That’s the district that includes a large portion of north Oak Cliff, bounded roughly by the Trinity River, Interstate 30, streets west of Beckley and a jagged boundary on the south that reaches to 5th and 8th streets. It’s a tax-increment finance district, which means developers can get reimbursements, which the city pays with money from increased property values. The committee has been tasked with setting standards for development in the district.
A public meeting regarding the rezoning and the committee’s work so far is at 7 p.m. Monday, July 11 in the Hitt Auditorium at Methodist hospital.
