Even though Alamo Manhattan released plans for a massive development in the Bishop Arts District, the developer does not yet own all of the properties in the planned development area, records show.

The map above shows property records for all of the current owners in the proposed development (click on the picture for a larger version). The city of Dallas owns the site of the former Roy’s Transmission shop (No. 7 on the map) with plans for a plaza park and streetcar stop.

Alamo Manhattan is meeting with the Kidd Springs Neighborhood Association at 6:30 p.m. Monday, June 15, at James Hogg Elementary School.

The film and panel discussion drummed up by an Oak Cliff neighbor is still on for 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Texas Theatre.

And something called Slackervists is protesting that meeting because of a lack of input from Latinos and business owners, valid complaints regarding a serious issue.

Unfortunately, the demands they’ve laid out so far are unrealistic and silly:

DEMAND 0: We demand that Oak Cliff real estate developers stop doing anything we don’t approve of.
DEMAND 1: We demand that Oak Cliff developers restore the Alamo Plaza Motor Lodge to its former glory and provide all documented residents of Oak Cliff a discounted room rate and half off drinks at the bar.
