MORE: Much has been said recently regarding the principles of Form Based Zoning and how they might be applied to the Oak Cliff Gateway. OOCCL and DHL with gracious cooperation from the City of Dallas have organized this event to give you an introduction to the city's FBZ ordinance; what it does, how it works and why we use it.
OOCCL and DHL would like to invite you to attend this very special event.
