Press Release

Join the Dallas Planning & Urban Design (PUD) Department for ForwardDallasLive!

This virtual event will take place on Jan. 27 from noon to 1:15 p.m. and will highlight the ForwardDallas Land Use Plan update and explain how and why Dallas will reevaluate existing land use policies and adopt new, more equitable, and sustainable strategies.

Land is a critical and limited resource in Dallas, and how the City plans for and uses this resource has a profound impact on our quality of life.

In August 2021, the City of Dallas launched the ForwardDallas Comprehensive Land Use Update, an inclusive process to update our citywide future land use vision as adopted in the 2006 ForwardDallas Comprehensive Plan.

ForwardDallasLive! will allow residents and stakeholders to hear from three panelists who are well-informed about equity in land use.

The panel will include Dr. Lorin Carter, Founder & CEO, C-Suite Consulting – Dallas; Suzan Kedron, Partner, Jackson & Walker – Dallas; and Theresa O’Donnell, Director of Planning & General Manager of Planning, Urban Design and Sustainability – Vancouver, Canada. The panel will explore the significance of equity in community planning and land development.

All residents are invited to participate in this informative and educational dialogue on how Dallas can use policy to advance and grow a better Dallas, together. To register visit fdlive2022.eventbrite.com.
