Plan for Restaurant on White Rock Lake's Boy Scout Hill Is Dead

Plan for Restaurant on White Rock Lake's Boy Scout Hill Is Dead

Pro tip: Don't mess with the people of White Rock Lake. No matter how good your plans for providing parking for patrons of that fancy new children's garden or offering high-quality food and drink with a pristine view of the lake may sound in your head, you will lose.

For developers Lyle Burgin and Rick Kopf, the men behind the proposed restaurant at Boy Scout Hill, that lesson sunk in some point after their disastrous public meeting this week. They passed along a brief statement this afternoon announcing that they are formally withdrawing their proposal:

We both firmly believe that the concept would be an excellent amenity for all of the citizens of Dallas, but the present time is not the right time. We thank all of the individuals and groups that have voiced their support. And we will see you at the lake!

Occupying Boy Scout Hill in the restaurant's stead will be the scalps of those who've been foolish enough to go toe-to-toe with White Rock neighbors
