Planning Dallas' Makeover

The early version of the 'Forward Dallas Comprehensive Plan' focuses on making the city more pedestrian-friendly.

"The need for a zoning-code overhaul and overwhelming citizen support for such transit-oriented developments are just two key findings of the plan, released this week after months of public meetings orchestrated by renowned urban planner John Fregonese.

Other recommendations include:

  • Bringing employment opportunities and retail services closer to residential areas.
  • Investing in quality multifamily housing and encouraging homeownership with creative financing options.
  • Improving sidewalks and transit service and offering incentives to keep commuters from hopping in their cars.
  • Redeveloping with office, retail and multifamily housing around transportation stations and corridors."
