Streets to Plaza: A Project Realized

The JMBP isn't the only group striving to improve our little corner of Oak Cliff. Check out this update on Tyler Street between Davis and Jefferson reposted from Go Oak Cliff:

"If you read the Dallas Morning News late last week, you probably picked up on an item that Go Oak Cliff is helping put together…Dallas’ first Streets to Plaza conversion. We’re still outlining plans and developing the project, but since the cat is out of the bag we wanted to reveal a bit more about the effort. For those who may be unfamiliar with our past projects, Go OC created a “Better Block” initiative where we took an area of old buildings with high vehicle traffic and turned it into a European styled walkable block, complete with temporary coffee shop, flower/gift market, kids’ art spaces, fruit stands, bike lanes, and cafe seating. Much to our surprise, the success of that project resonated nationwide and queued up the potential for a series of other projects we’ll be unveiling shortly."

For information on how to "Build a Better Block" check out Go OC's article here. And stay tuned for more news about this amazing opportunity for Oak Cliff!
