Oak Cliff – This Place Matters

Posted by    |    June 21st, 2017 at 9:06 am


As a result of our Preservation Town Hall, OOCCL has started an Oak Cliff – This Place Matters Facegbook page found here.  This Place Matters is a campaign organized by the National Trust for Historic Places.  

From their website found here “”This Place Matters is national campaign that encourages people to celebrate the places that are meaningful to them and to their communities.”

Download the materials on the National Historic Trust website and make a photo of a place important to you and post it on our Facebook page.  This will help us identify places important to the community and possible City of Dallas Landmark status.

The residents, neighborhoods and businesses of Oak Cliff are proud of our rich, distinctive history, structures and public spaces, But recently we have been buffeted by tear-downs of historic and loved buildings. As our area continues to experience rapid change and development, we would like to think about how we can act in a positive way to preserve and protect this history. Hear from our expert panelists and take this opportunity to share your ideas about this issue.
