Benjamin Donguk Lukoff Why was there never a Southlake when we had a Westlake, Eastlake, and Northlake?
Jules James I like Allenville. The history of Paul Allen’s investment into the old hard-bitten Southlake neighborhood is too often ignored. He gave $20M to purchase land for a civic park. When taxpayers rejected The Commons (thank goodness!), he rightfully took possession of the land. Allenville began as local civic do-gooding and became internationally significant — good enough reason to award a place name.
Lorna Jordan If the Commons had been handled differently, I believe it would have passed and would have been a great asset to the city. Green space downtown? Heck yeah.
Jules James Tax Increment Financing was entirely a scam. The Commons was a victim. But what we got worked out: jobs & housing well in excess of Commons proponents’ predictions plus the instant classic Southlake Park.
Julian Wheeler And they shall call it “Mohaits.” (Get it? See what I did ther’?)
Peggy Durant-Storey Young Amazonia.. For all the 20 somethings (all with name tags showing) walking fast, on their way somewhere, anywhere..
Can’t remember the original ‘flavor’ of this district except for the feeling of run down bldgs & quiet history..
UNRECOGNIZABLE now.. Everything brand spanking new.. HATE it grumpy emoticon
Mary Gleason-thach Ray I think Allentown pretty much says it all. Easy to say, easy to spell. Stick with that.
Clark Wiegman Glad to see some of your wit & wisdom captured in this format. Invaluable civic service. Thank you.
