Video Summary:

In October of 2019, a tornado passed through north and northwestern Dallas, Texas, directly impacting an approximately 16-mile area and damaging or destroying homes, businesses, public facilities, and the tree canopy. As a peer city in the Resilience Land Use Cohort, the City of Dallas asked ULI to convene an Advisory Services Panel, using the program’s new virtual format, to focus on a study area approximately a half (1/2) mile around the Walnut Hill/ Denton Drive Dallas Area Rapid Transit station impacted by the tornado. The panel was asked to provide recommendations on how to foster greater social cohesion within the study area business and demographic populations while promoting climate resilience and environmental justice.

The Virtual Advisory Services Panel (vASP) chair Ladd Keith (University of Arizona) and panelists Pegy Brimhall (Figurd Development), Jill Allen Dixon (Sasaki), Chanceé Lundy (Nspiregreen LLC), and Riki Nishimura (Populous), sponsor representatives Michael Mendoza (City of Dallas) and Council Member Omar Narvaez (Dallas City Council) present the panel’s recommendations at the end of the 2.5-day vASP on August 12, 2020.
