To ensure design aligns with the priorities of Dallas communities, the Conservancy launched a series of planning studies. To advise on these efforts, the Conservancy has established two volunteer committees. These committees include local experts in design, community advocacy, Dallas neighborhoods, the arts, urban planning, development, and landscape architecture to ensure a diverse representation from across our city.
