Transit-Oriented Development in Southern Dallas

Lynn Flint-Shaw, the first African-American Female Chair of DART, wrote an op-ed piece (link) for the DMN earlier in the week. It focused on transit-oriented development.

Some people have an aura about them as they do their work. Lynn is one of those people. I always appreciate women who carry themselves with grace in spite of negativity. You have to question the motivation of people whose sole purpose in life seems to be to engage people in cat fights which do zero for the community. Lynn just keeps pressing on, and we love her for it.

If Dallas (especially Southern Dallas) is to move forward, we must have focused minds and decision-makers in place. Do you see the type of conversations that are now taking place all over Dallas instead of just north of I-30? It looks like the switch has finally been flipped.

Wow, everything is so much different than when I first started writing in Dallas several years ago! Let’s stay on this positive path; if we get distracted and don’t move forward we’ll never catch up in the South.
