Two meetings about a proposed Dallas Housing Authority project planned for Oak Lawn are scheduled.
DHA plans to build a new complex on Kings Road between Cedar Springs and Maple Avenue to replace an old property torn down two years ago, and it’s seeking a zoning variance to increase the height restriction to 65 feet and reduce parking requirements to allow almost twice as many units as the previous development.
Mike Harper, who lives near the project, organized a group called Rezoning DHA. His group would like to see adequate parking for residents and a less dense complex. Even without the modifications, this will become the housing authority’s largest project in Dallas.
“There is still a significant amount of community concern about the project as individuals want to ensure the best for the community,” Harper said.
Two meetings are scheduled on the project:
Tuesday, Jan, 28 at 6 p.m.: Community Meeting at Reverchon Park Recreation Center, 3505 Maple Ave. with Councilman Adam Medrano to hear the latest proposal from DHA. This will be an opportunity for the community to come together to decide how to respond to the final proposal from DHA.
Thursday, Feb. 6 at 1:30 p.m.: City of Dallas Planning & Zoning Commission public hearing will provide time for public comment and vote on the proposal.
