Oak Cliff Gateway to Plan Commission Nov. 20

The City Plan Commission could vote Thursday, Nov. 20, to approve the Oak Cliff Gateway plan and send it on to City Council.

The plan would rezone nearly 900 acres, roughly from the Houston Street Viaduct to Davis, and from Elsbeth to Interstate 35. It is one of the largest mass zoning cases in Dallas history. The zoning calls for walkable, transit-oriented designs and would require builders to submit their designs to a nonbinding peer-review process before they could build in the area.

The changes also would allow 20-story buildings where the Oak Farms Dairy now stands, as well as on the Methodist hospital campus. Twelve-story buildings would be allowed on Jefferson from Colorado to Marsalis. And eight stories would be allowed on Beckley from Greenbriar to Interstate 30.

    Wow. How are all these new Cliff Dwellers supposed to get around ? Worm holes? Rocket back packs? Telepathy? Out of body experiences? There is not enough infrastructure to support any of this.
