The Dallas Plan Commission today will hold a public hearing in regard to the proposed creation of a conservation district in Little Forest Hills. The effort has been in the works for several years and has generated much contention amongst homeowners there. I wrote a piece for the Advocate in October, The Fight for Funkytown, that delves into some of the issues Little Forest Hills is facing.
Because the plan commission will consider public opinion when making a recommendation to the city council, Little Forest Hills residents are encouraging neighbors to show up to voice their opinions — lots of folks representing either side of the debate are expected to show.
Thanks to Randall Heye who forwarded me the reminder — the CPC hearing is today, Thursday Nov. 6 at 1:30 p.m. at Dallas City Hall, 6th Floor, in the City Council Chambers. If you plan to attend, bear in mind the Little Forest Hills hearing is low on the docket, so you should expect ot be at City Hall until at least 5 p.m.
