This Week. . .
Today begins what could turn out to be one of the most important weeks in the history of our little organization.
This morning we have important meetings with three Dallas City Council members.
Following these meetings, we will sit in on a council briefing provided by city staff. Among other issues will be a presentation of our downtown housing project to the council's committee on economic development.
Then, on Wednesday the full council will take up our project. We need these elected leaders to provide the "go ahead" for our low-income tax credit application with the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs in Austin. Without council approval our current plans will be finished!
So, we face a week filled with important meetings and big decisions.
Hanging in the balance will be a project that would provide new hope and real stability for some of our city's lowest income citizens.
At the same time, the project will allow us to expand several of our other initiatives. When completed, the new development will provide office space for about 40 of our team leaders.
Our plan is creative, engaging, forward-looking and neighbor-sensitive. It should be supported. Our city needs what we have planned.
Please remember us this week.
