Hello, Dallas. I’m here in your inbox this morning to tell you everything you need to know about what’s happening around town.

But first, today’s weather:


Not as hot. High: 65 Low: 46.

๐Ÿ“ข I am looking for business owners and marketers in Dallas who want to build awareness, connect with customers and increase sales.

I have a limited number of sponsorships available to introduce our readers to local businesses they need to know. If that’s you, I invite you to learn more and secure your spot now.

Here are the top three stories today in Dallas:

  1. Murder charges have been filed against two teenagers in Dallas in connection with a shooting on February 5. A 14-year-old and 15-year-old are accused of killing Quincy Lee Branch, 22. According to police, Branch and a 19-year-old Fort Worth man were both shot while they were in a car that crashed into a Garland apartment building. The 14-year-old was already in custody in an unrelated case when the murder charge was brought, while the 15-year-old was arrested and charged with murder. Both juveniles are being held at the Henry Wade Juvenile Justice Center. (Subscription: Fort Worth Star-Telegram)
  2. The Dallas Park and Recreation Department will plant 800 to 1,000 young trees in city-owned parks by mid-April. This initiative is part of “Branch Out Dallas,โ€ a program started in 2018 to reduce the heat island effect and increase the total tree canopy in Dallas. Parking spaces are selected based on several criteria, including canopy coverage, open space availability and equity. While city employees are responsible for digging the holes for the trees and installing irrigation systems, the tree planting events are voluntary. Those interested can learn more about the project at the link. (Community Impact Newspaper)
  3. The City of Dallas is introducing affordable housing to Dallas through Oakhouse, a new mixed-income apartment community. The new community, created in conjunction with Mintwood Real Estate and MSquared, will bring “219 units of Class A market-rate affordable housing” to the Oak Cliff area. It will offer 110 of its units at affordable rents to households making up to 80 percent of the area’s median income. (The Dallas Post Tribune)
