Advocate/Cliff Dweller poses the $100 Million Question
PDF Print E-mail


The new Advocate has a great article about the future of development in our area.  The article is topical and forward thinking while simiultaneously being mindful of our assets and the sentiments that drew many to Oak Cliff in the first place. 

A quote from the article - “This is a strategy that tends to have the opposite effect of most development, which is divisive,” Winnetka Heights resident and urban planner Kevin Sloan says. “This is the kind of project that brings people together, which is what good urban design does.”

The article by Keri Mitchell and Jeff Siegel can be found here.   Also, the podcasts that contain the actual recorded interviews with Kevin Sloan and Stephan Pickard that the article was drawn from are here.  The conversation that the idea came from is here.
