The promise of economic development in South Dallas from the Trinity Forest Golf Course will no longer happen. The idea of a hotel for instance, is now very much dead. Frisco has the hotel now.
I attended the Byron Nelson this year and it was a logistical mess. It will never improve even in the best case scenarios.

But if it does, I want the folks who forced this deal through, the same ones who forced the horse park through (which by the way supplanted a homegrown, good-for-the-neighborhood horse park) put on a new millennial pillory until they move to another town from the embarrassment.

they've been around for 70/80 years, have raised over $150,000,000 to help over 100,000 underprivileged children.... so, like, that's a long time and a whole lotta money helping not very many kids every year. Where's all that money going, really?

Saying this is the city of Dallas blunder is like saying its South Dallas fault that it's been in such bad shape for decades. I would love to put the blame on city hall but city hall is run by the 1% that is the Dallas Citizens Council and they are the leadership. City Hall is merely a made for TV drama to distract the audience from the producers running the "reality" show.

A serious question for you capseritl, because you would know off the top of your head: How many of those champions and direct reports of those champions are still making decisions about this golf course, adjacent horse park, and overall Trinity River Park Forest?

Perhaps because Dallas is MUCH bigger than any of those places.

Great article, except he was too kind (and his list of “Trail off Tears” projects was pretty abbreviated.
