When he received the news, former Dallas City Councilmember Ed Oakley said, "I have never heard of city staff taking an ordinance to City Plan Commission that has been voted against by the Zoning Ordinance Advisory Committee."
Guess what? After being rejected by ZOAC, on Thursday, the City Plan Commission holds a 'workshop' meeting on the late-hours overlay. The overlay is one of two topics on their agenda.
Some city officials really want to activate a 'tool' that would let residents use backdoor channels to close nearby businesses between the hours of midnight and 6 a.m.
For all those who enjoy Uptown, know that the ordinance's architects have their sights set on you ... for starters.
So, we're showing up on Thursday. We have been told that they will not be taking public input at this meeting. However, our large turnouts have spoken volumes.
We hope you will join us.
