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.
