Griggs Mourns Loss of ‘Beautiful’ Street Grid
From the Facebook page of Dallas City Councilman Scott Griggs:
“R.I.P. Neely (sic) Street between Beckley and Zang. The City of Dallas abandoned Neely today and sold it Dallas County Schools for expansion of a building and parking lot. I opposed the abandonment. A huge loss for our beautiful streetgrid in Oak Cliff. Let’s don’t make suburban super blocks.”
Seems like a lot of tears for two blocks of turf facing only a bus lot that belongs to the Dallas County Schools transportation office on Davis Street. However, some Griggs supporters point out that this spot is ripe with potential once you factor in plans for the neighborhood’s streetcar. What are your thoughts?
