The Oak Cliff Renaissance
Jason Roberts, Mariana Griggs & Amy Cowan
Is Dallas' "next big thing" south of the Trinity? Our guests this hour think so. With a nod to Jim Schutze's recent Dallas Observer article, we'll get the inside scoop on the Oak Cliff Renaissance from Jason Roberts, president of the Oak Cliff Transit Authority and co-founder of Bike Friendly Oak Cliff, Mariana Griggs, who runs the Oak Cliff Community Gardens and Amy Cowan, organizer of Cliff Fest, the Mardi Gras Parade, the 2008 Presidential Watch party in the Bishop Arts District.
That segment airs at 1 p.m. Jim's holding a listening party in his office. No one is invited.
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.
