Tonight, the Council Will Debut North Hampton Park's New Rec Center
The conceptual rendering of the new and improved Mattie Nash Myrtle Davis Recreation Center
This evening, the Dallas City Council's holding a Special Community meeting at the YMCA at 3737 Goldman Street, off N. Hampton Road. And though there are a few pieces of business to attend to, mostly the approval of streetscape improvements on Commerce Street/Fort Worth Avenue, the council will also make two presentations to folks who show up.
This is probably the more interesting item: "What the Trinity River Corridor Project Means for the West Side of Dallas," an 81-page document summarizing all the promised projects up and down the Trinity, including every last lake, recreational and, yup, solar-powered water taxi. But the council will also debut plans for the new Mattie Nash Myrtle Davis Recreation Center in North Hampton Park, which is scheduled to begin construction in February with April 2010 as the guesstimated finish date. The city, in fact, began advertising for bids on the project today. --Robert Wilonsky
