Bryan Place Neighborhood Association Websites

The Bryan Place Neighborhood Association is privileged to have an expert webmaster, Phillip Bryan, our neighbor. Sharon Smith created the initial static website in 2008. Phillip began migrating the web in 2010 to a dynamic site using a content management system. He describes our sites as “a work in progress” because the underlying technologies continue to change and improve.

Phillip strives to keep pace with the changes so our membership can easily access neighborhood information regardless of what they use to connect to the web i.e., a tablet, a phone, or a computer.

Our public website is supported by the Association and can be accessed at www.bryanplace.org. It provides an on‐going stream of neighborhood‐
specific information for anyone to see. He has organized this site to provide a glimpse of current information on the home page with links that take you to the expanded content on that subject. He changes the home page content as new information becomes available. The Association’s monthly newsletter is linked to the homepage to provide convenience for the web reader. The reader can use the dropdown lists on the homepage to access a wide variety of information as shown in the following diagram:


  • News Articles
  • Announcements
  • Yard of the Month
  • Newsletter Archive
  • Development


  • All upcoming Events
  • Board Meetings
  • Book Club
  • In the Neighborhood
  • In the Area


  • Permits and Forms
  • City Services
  • Safety
  • Pets and Strays
  • In the Area

About Bryan Place

  • The Neighborhood
  • The Association
  • The Park
  • The Swimming Pool
  • Contact Forms

The public website provides people moving to within Dallas means to learn about our neighborhood and what a great place it is for living near downtown.

In the last year Phillip has begun the building process for a members‐only site available to paid members of the Bryan Place Neighborhood Association. When you join the Association, you are automatically enrolled in the member‐only portion of the website. Important information is posted in this space relating to the Association’s Board, Board minutes of our meetings, historical documents. You can participate by submitting an article or document you believe would be of interest to other members. You can also update your profile or renew your membership on this
site. The message board provides you the tools to discuss issues with other association members.

Phillip deserves our heartfelt congratulations for an excellent web presence for the Bryan Place Neighborhood Association.

Exall Park Tree Lighting Festival

I want to thank each of you for your continued support to make Exall Park one of the finest inner city, urban parks in Texas. Exall was 100 years young this year and has never looked better.

Our first Christmas Tree Lighting was a huge success and enjoyed by many in the neighborhood and community. The estimated crowd was 300 people in the park coming, enjoying themselves, and going at different times.

If you have not been out to the park yet, please come and enjoy the beautifully decorated trees. It was great fun and I appreciated our judges, Sharon DeGarmo and Bill Brister for selecting our winners.

  • Winning the neighborhood group tree contest was the “Bryan Place Brat Pack” team led by Ruben Ramirez.
  • Winning the commercial sponsored tree was Independent Bank.

This event could not have happened without Dale Sparrow and Jeff Lumkes. They were involved in the selection, delivery, and installation of all eight trees in the park.

I hope all of you have a wonderful Holiday Season and look forward to seeing you in the park!

Thank you so much,

General Meeting Notes

On the evening of October 23rd, the Bryan Place Neighborhood Association had its Fall General Meeting, and approximately 50 neighbors attended. Two presentations were given.

Trinity Watershed Management Department

The first presentation was by the City of Dallas’s Trinity Watershed Management Department on the future of storm water flood relief in our neighborhood and the associated underground construction. Unfortunately, this Mill Creek flood project is not slated to provide Bryan Place with additional flood protection for several years, likely not until 2019.

A New Dallas

The second presentation was by local urban planner Patrick Kennedy on his project “A New Dallas.” He has proposed the demolition and removal of I‐345, which is the short freeway connecting I‐45 and I‐75 on the edge of Bryan Place, in order to allow the associated 64 acres to be redeveloped into urban‐friendly uses.
