Full House at City Hall Discussing Riverfront Blvd. Design

On May 10, the City Hall auditorium was close to capacity as interested property owners, citizens and City leaders met to review proposed plans and alignments for Riverfront Blvd. presented by the City of Dallas and Dallas County. This is a joint public project managed by the two and designed by Hayden Consultants, Inc. and Wallace, Todd and Roberts (WRT).

This public meeting provided a forum for citizen input before the reconstruction takes place on Riverfront Blvd. between Cadiz Street and Continental Avenue.

Display boards provided a glimpse into some of the alignment changes as well as the type of landscaping

 


and signage that is being proposed. These plans are developed by Hayden Consultants, Inc., a woman-owned civil engineering consulting firm specializing in economically and environmentally sustainable design, and Wallace Todd and Roberts (WRT) a national urban design firm focused on building with sustainability and dedicated to improving natural and built environments.

To see the presentation from May 10 given by Hayden and WRT, the preliminary alignment maps and a video of what Riverfront Blvd. may look like when the improvements are complete, use this link: http://www.trinityrivercorridor.com/

2010 Trinity River Photo Contest Dates Announced

“Bringing the Trinity to Life,” the photo exhibit featuring winning photos from the 2009 Trinity River Photo Contest debuted at Methodist Dallas Medical Center. The dates for the new contest were announced by Councilmember Dave Neumann during a gallery style reception on April 29, 2010. The next contest will begin June 15, 2010 and photos will be accepted through midnight on October 15, 2010.

As soon as the contest begins, participants can send an e-mail to mytrinityriver@dallascityhall.com to signup as a participant.

The reception replete with hand passed hors d’ oeuvres, different flavors of aqua fresca refreshments, a gazpacho bar, and many other tasty treats was opened by an invocation delivered by Methodist’s vice president of pastoral services, Reverend Carole Somers-Clark and her inspirational blessing for the exhibit is published in this months newsletter. Councilmember Dave Neumann who represents District 3 was the Master of Ceremonies for the evening introducing Mayor Tom Leppert and president of Methodist, Michael Mayo.

The reception was attended by a number of the photographers of all ages. Two of the judges joined in the fun and had a chance to put names and faces with the winning selections; Michael Hamtil, photo editor for the Dallas Morning News and Reginald Loftin, professional photographer.

Get those cameras out Dallas!  It’s almost time to start the next contest.
