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.
Community Engagement & Inclusive Neighborhoods Committee
The Community Engagement & Inclusive Development Committee advocates for inclusive community development around the Park and is committed to equitable development as a pillar of design. Members of the committee include: Darren James (chair), Cris Jordan, Angela Faz, Ken Reese, Marguerite Hoffman, Byron Sanders, Tynesia Boyea-Robinson, Nicole Acosta, Roy Lopez and James Armstrong.
Design Advisory Committee
The Design Advocacy Committee focuses on the unique design needs of the Dallas landscape. Members of the committee include: Robert Meckfessel (chair), Kevin Sloan, Lucilo Pena, Dr. Adrian Parr, and Julie McGilvray.
