Zoning and Dallas City Hall

Wow! Winter passed through mildly, now spring has sprung in Dallas. March’s Bryan Place Neighborhood Association Yard of the Month gave us a little preview of spring.

Dallas City Council voted 15-0 Wednesday to designate the 78-year-old Lakewood Theater an official City of Dallas landmark. The process started in early 2016 without the owner’s consent. But, finally, it is done—and with the blessings of the Lakewood’s owners, Craig Kinney and Bill Willingham. Preservationists and neighborhood residents first became concerned about the theater’s fate in November 2014. Preservationists feared that the Perry Nichols’ murals would be removed and didn’t trust that the tower would survive the intended makeover.Read more
