Since 2007, NOCUPP has been one of the crucial strategies in our efforts to make Winnetka Heights and other nearby neighborhoods safer places to live. Police officers who are trained to identify suspicious activity, and to respond quickly and effectively, patrol our neighborhood at all hours of the day and night.
To learn more and to hear about what officers are seeing when they patrol our neighborhood, join us for this informative meeting next week.

Oak Cliff Animal Initiative: Animal Issues Town Hall Meeting

Saturday, April 9 from 9:30 a.m. to noon
Kidd Springs Recreation Center 

Loose dogs on your nerves? Barking dogs driving you crazy? This meeting is designed to give everyone a chance to talk collaboratively in non-confrontational environment about the unique animal issues challenging our neighborhoods. The goal of this meeting is to let neighbors know how to best use the systems that are in place to address their animal issues and to see how Oak Cliff neighbors can collaborate, communicate, educate, and advocate towards common animal welfare and quality of life goals. Our meeting is being co-sponsored by Scott Grigg’s office.
We will have 311 representatives in the house to answer your questions about how 311 works in regards to animals and animal issues and Peter Brodsky, the Animal Advisory Commission Chair, will also be in the house. This is your opportunity to voice your concerns directly to the head of the Animal Advisory Commission.
This meeting is powerful opportunity to bring together our concerns, ideas, and city resources to make our neighborhoods the best they can be. Oak Cliff neighborhoods are known for their thought leadership; we like to think out of the box and take care of our people and animals.
The last two meetings were a powerful first step towards changing how our City does business regarding loose animals in our neighborhoods. We have a long way to go! It’s budget season – so let’s keep that momentum going and pull together with the City’s leadership and solve animal issues for all Oak Cliff and all of Dallas’ residents.
