Partner Ross A. Williams has been selected to the Economic Development and Housing Subcommittee for the City of Dallas’ Citizens Bond Task Force (CBTF). The task force and its subcommittees are tasked with evaluating and recommending proposed projects for each proposition for the city’s 2017 Capital Bond Program.
The Economic Development and Housing Subcommittee consists of 15 members and is charged with providing a city-wide review of commercial areas, transit-oriented development projects, permanent supportive housing initiatives, mixed-income housing developments and neighborhood revitalization efforts.
The CBTF, whose members were selected based on a city council member recommendation, is shaping the 2017 Capital Bond Program – an $800 million initiative going before city voters in November, aimed at supporting key infrastructure projects in five categories: streets; parks and trails; flood control and storm drainage; critical facilities (public safety, libraries, cultural facilities and city facilities); and economic development and housing. Recommendations are set to be presented to Mayor Rawlings in early June.
