Dallas Housing and Neighborhood Revitalization
…on Dallas Housing Policy 2033, via Dallas Business Journal.
On Wednesday, Noguera and other officials presented a plan called the Dallas Housing Policy 2033 for Dallas City Council. The policy aims to increase the equity and affordability of Dallas housing options, and is built on seven pillars:
- Target areas for equity strategy which identifies differences in housing opportunities
- City-wide production to increase affordable housing for a broad mix of incomes
- City-wide conservation to improve housing affordability
- Infrastructure investments that prioritize the equity strategy’s target areas
- Cooperation and coordination to coordinate strategies and resources
- Engagement via various communication routes throughout the city
- education via a campaign to promote YIMBYism (Yes in my Backyard)
To drive the plan forward, a working group would be established. The City Council is slated to vote in April on the plan, which Noguera said could cost the city about $400 million, according to KERA — and that’s “just a glimpse” of funds needed to implement it.
“For this thing to succeed, we can’t do it alone,” Noguera said, according to DBJ’s Plamedie Ifasso. “It cannot be the employees, the consultants and the council members. We really need community buy-in to build credibility for this plan and build sustainability so it can continue over the 10-year period.”
