A quick follow-up for readers following the Ferguson Road beat. Kerry Goodwin, the Weed n’ Seed coordinator for the area tells me:
Yes, we did receive Official Recognition for the 2-Points community as a
Weed & Seed target area and yes townhome development was approved by the
Dallas City Council (53 units I think).The next step on the grant process is to submit a grant budget and time
table for implementation. This is still a highly competitive process and funds
are not guaranteed considering all of the Fed. gov’t’s budget woes… however,
we were one of only 22 sites approved nationwide… and a good final application
should (could) be successful.
Both items are great news for the neighborhood. I’m already seeing an increased police presence.
