One of our neighbors has taken legal action in an attempt to prevent the city from allowing the Dallas Arboretum to use grassy areas at Winfrey Point for temporary overflow parking.
The Park Board recently gave the arboretum permission to park cars there during the Chihuly exhibit, May 5-Nov. 5. Attorney Robert Cohen filed a temporary restraining order against the city on behalf of Christopher Fears, naming Councilman Sheffie Kadane and the Dallas Arboretum, according to the Dallas Morning News. The court filing claims the temporary parking lots will damage the ecosystem and that no public hearing was held on the matter.
The full filing is after the jump, via the DMN.
