Harper.MikeSeveral weeks ago, I mentioned the lack of neighborhood associations in Oak Lawn. Dallas Councilman Philip Kingston pointed out I missed one active group in SoHiP (that’s South of Highland Park) — those several blocks between Lemmon Avenue and the Highland Park border running from Oak Lawn Avenue to the Tollway.

Another group covering a large Oak Lawn neighborhood is about to form.

The neighborhood group that opposed Dallas Housing Authority rezoning in Oak Lawn will meet on Thursday to create a neighborhood association in an area that is mostly apartments and condos.

The meeting will be held at the clubhouse at Lure Apartments, 2929 Kings Road on April 10 at 6:45 p.m. The proposed area includes all blocks from Cedar Springs Road to Maple Avenue and from Maple Springs to Wycliff and the Tollway. The Maple Springs area has its own neighborhood association.

Organizer Mike Harper invited home and condo owners as well as renters to attend and said developers and business owners are welcome as well.

Zoning issues between the DHA and the neighborhood have been resolved. See Friday’s paper for details.
