How should the city spend $22.5 million in Oak Cliff?

The City of Dallas will finalize its $800 million municipal bond program three weeks from now.

If voters approve it in November, as much as $22.5 million of that could be spent in Oak Cliff.

City Councilman Scott Griggs released this spreadsheet of how the money could be spent, and he’ll host a meeting with neighbors at 6 p.m Thursday, July 27, at the Kidd Springs Recreation Center to discuss the bond program.

At the top of the spreadsheet are nearly $1.6 million for streetscaping and urban design along Bishop Avenue between Tenth Street and Jefferson Boulevard.

Also on the list: $500,000 for streetlights in Elmwood, building a $2.1-million connection between North Boulevard Terrace and Plymouth Road, and eliminating or reconfiguring the Jefferson/12th Street connection, which would cost about $2 million.

    Glad to see the trail connecting Wynnewood North to Elmwood, which is already connected to Kiest Park. Great amenity for those neighborhoods.
