It's Dallas for Christ's sake. It's all about who has the money and the political clout and who greases the right palms at City Hall. On the other hand, development in South Dallas will happen when the demographics improve and local demand supports it. Look at the redevelopment along Jefferson Blvd. It's local to meet local demand, not forced development to equalize North and South. That doesn't work. If people don't feel safe going there it only works for locals. Even normal people ain't driving too far into the black hole that is South Dallas for anything they can get next door safely. Good example is the total abject failure of turning Fair Park into more of a year round venue. Dude, I mean really, can you see taking your kids there anytime Dallas Police don't have the thing blanketed from stem to stern with quadruple patrols during the Fair? Any parents who would do that should be investigated for child abuse.
