Live from City Hall
Among those in the audience is Dwayne Jones, executive director of Preservation Dallas, who says he is "perplexed" by the outrage being directed toward the plan and the council committee that approved it. Contrary to the opinions of the speakers snaked around the council chambers, who insist ForwardDallas! will ruin their neighborhoods by stuffing them full of multi-family housing, Jones insists FD! is in fact receptive to and protective of neighborhoods. "I'm very perplexed by the comments that people feel that their neighborhoods are being threatened," Jones says. "I didn't see that anywhere in the plan, and we are, of course, supportive of neighborhoods. Either there has been some grave misunderstanding, or there's something in the plan that I didn't see."
And something we didn't see? The mayor. --Robert Wilonsky
