District 9 City Council member Paula Blackmon is hosting a town hall meeting to discuss the Dallas Public Facility Corporation.
The DPFC, created in 2020, partners with housing developers to provide mixed-income workforce housing communities for residents.
This program is being used by Ojala Holdings in its proposed development at the Shoreline Church site. The plan calls for a mixed-use development with multifamily rental units, two-story rental homes, office space and green space. Ojala says it will lease 51% of the units to residents at or below 80% of the Dallas Area Median Income.
In the neighborhood meetings, Blackmon will lead discussions on the need for housing and how it leads to economic development, as well as how a public facility corporation can benefit the City of Dallas.
