ACTION ALERT – SEND YOUR MESSAGE NOW
Over the last few years, North Oak Cliff has been experiencing amazing growth and change. Many neighborhoods are under a protective umbrella by obtaining Historic or Preservation designations. Those neighborhoods not under such protection are especially at risk. Just as in this rezoning request, many more single-family districts may come under attack from developers seeking to “cash in” on this “cheap dirt”.
There is no particular metric that can either win or lose this debate for either side. A high density, multi-family development in the middle of a single-family community simply defies common sense.
There is a difference between a “house” and a “Home”. A “Home” provides continuity, security, familiarity, and comfort for our most intimate and satisfying life experiences. The intimately bound ideas of home and family strike deep emotional chords in our culture.
The failure of developers and others to account for the importance of the “Home” suggests an incomplete cost-accounting. Zoning is a device designed to protect a neighborhood from encroachments by land uses inconsistent with its character, regardless of the positive or negative effects of a proposed development on the market values of individual properties.
