Elm Thicket/Northpark is a traditionally African-American neighborhood located just east of Love Field airport. The neighborhood has a prime location with great access to shopping, jobs, and transportation. Over the past 20 years, the area has seen significant demographic and economic changes. A few of the changes include a large rise in the Hispanic population as well as rising property values and new construction. For over a year now, many residents and neighborhood leaders have been working through the Neighborhood Crime Watch with Councilmember Medrano, City Code reps, Dallas Police, and other City departments to build stronger relationships and address their concerns.
With the neighborhood undergoing ongoing changes and broader neighborhood concerns regarding the changes, in 2016 Councilmember Medrano designated Elm Thicket/Northpark as one of the Neighborhood Plus target areas.
Through extensive community outreach, community meetings, and convening of neighborhood leaders through an advisory council, Neighborhood Plus worked with Elm Thicket/Northpark to define a vision for its future. The Vision Statement developed by the community states:
“To support a diverse, safe neighborhood with quality housing, infrastructure, and institutions for all its residents, and to preserve and protect the legacy and heritage of this historic Dallas neighborhood.”
Furthermore, the neighborhood has identified short-term actions and long-term stabilization strategies. Together, the City of Dallas staff, residents, and other stakeholders developed a Strategic Neighborhood Action Plan (SNAP) built around a community-based process that reflects the interests and needs of residents and other stakeholders. Read the Neighborhood Action Plan. The Neighborhood Association is working to implement the items identified in this plan.
