Our next meeting



How to Prevent Displacement from Gentrification
Tuesday May 21, 2019 from 6:30 to 8 pm
Fellowship Hall, St. Augustine's Episcopal Church at 1302 W. Kiest Blvd., Dallas, 75224.

So you are on a fixed or limited income and you own a home in a neighborhood that is gentrifying.  You want to stay in your home, but your property taxes are escalating due to the rising property values in your neighborhood. This program will address constructive ways that you can remain in your home and deal with the gentrification that is occurring around you!  Cheryl Jordan with the Dallas Central Appraisal District (DCAD) will first explain how the property taxes system works in Texas and then talk about tools that you can use to reduce your tax burden.  Then Paul Carden will explain how those tools can be used in the real world and as a way to help plan and prepare for gentrification. You can indicate you plan to attend by going to our Facebook event page at: https://www.facebook.com/events/2255344348047935/

Presenter Bios:








Paul Carden, an associate at Venture Commercial Real Estate, is active in urban land, landlord representation and consulting, working with both Venture’s Urban Core Division and leasing in urban and suburban markets. His unique combination of urban real estate knowledge, zoning expertise and community connections allows him to not just see the potential of a property, but actively change it to make deals happen. He is a founding board member of the Southern Gateway Public Green Foundation, a non-profit foundation that is the private partner with the City working to bring a community-focused deck park over I-35 South adjacent to the Dallas Zoo. He was formerly chair of the Southern Gateway Task Force, which successfully pushed for numerous improvements to the $666 million reconstruction of I-35E in southern Dallas including securing $40 million for the infrastructure of a new park.

 






Cheryl Jordan is the Community Relations Officer for the Dallas Central Appraisal District and has been with the District since 1988 (30+ years). A Dallas native, she graduated from Skyline High School and the Business and Management Magnet.  She received her Bachelors of Administration in Accounting from the University of Texas at Austin.  Prior to DCAD, she worked as an external auditor for five years.
