Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

This arrived in the in-box mere moments ago: an invitation to The Formal Unveiling of the Downtown Dallas 360 plan, the first holiday party of the season. After all, you paid for the plan (close to a million, once you factor in the late-addition parking study), so you might as well get to see what MIG has to offer after the myriad updates offered in recent months.

Save the date: Monday, December 6, 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Dallas Convention Center in Ballroom A. From the invite:

Downtown Dallas 360 is an action-oriented plan that will provide a blueprint for the next center city revitalization. From economic development and housing, to public space, transit, and parking, the 360 plan outlines key strategies and special recommendations that will ensure continued development of a vibrant and sustainable Downtown. Join the City of Dallas and Downtown Dallas, Inc. for a presentation of the final draft plan and conversation focused on implementation, priorities and action.

And now, to the list of the 260 other land-use plans, just since 1979, presently stored somewhere at Dallas City Hall. (Condominium Conversions in Dallas?) Me, I prefer the classics.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
