On June 9th, the City Council overturned the recommendation of the City Planning Commission, and the desires of 2100 petition signers, and approved the request to rezone the property at a height of 75 ft or six stories. The number of affordable units was increased from 5% to 9%.

DO THIS NOW:
I was OPPOSED to the requested rezoning and deed restriction changes outlined in rezoning submission Z201-139. I asked the Dallas City Council and Mayor Eric Johnson to vote NO on the requested changes to the current zoning and deed restrictions for this area based on:
- Traffic & safety - the ingress and egress for 2000+ vehicle trips traffic from the intersection simply can't be supported at the 3G intersection, even when TXDOT reconfigures
High-density development in a low/medium density area will change the character of East Dallas
White Rock Lake is known as the "Jewel of Dallas". We need to take care of this resource, it's natural beauty and the environment around it. The environmental impact of the development is unknown. No studies are planned.
The Lake and Garden District will become the traffic snarl and mid & high rise district
Citizens of Dallas do not want this development
Can you help me understand why you voted to rezone the property against the recommendation of the City Planning Commission and desires and many Dallas citizens?
