Are the city’s potholes getting you down? This week’s town hall meetings lets neighbors provide feedback on the 2017 bond program

If you have concerns about our neighborhood’s streets, trails or housing, this week is an opportunity to talk with city officials about where to spend 2017 bond funds.

Two town hall meetings are slated Monday, May 22 and Thursday, May 25, from 6-8 p.m. at Dallas City Hall. Neighbors can provide feedback on the Citizens Bond Task Force’s recommendations for the bond program.

Monday’s meeting focuses on streets and flood protection, while Thursday’s gathering is all about parks and trails, economic development and housing, and critical facilities.

Dallasites were supposed to vote on the $800 million bond program during the May election, but it was pushed back to November after city council members couldn’t agree on how to allocate the funding.  (Not to mention the police and fire pension crisis has yet to be resolved.)
