    I have been a resident of Winnetka Heights for about 20 years. Our house is just south of 7th street on Willomet Ave; Davis Street is visible from our front porch. Like many, I am interested in retaining the unique intrinsic qualities of our neighborhood that make it special. However, I imagine a Davis Street that is different and better than it is today. Given our proximity to the Trinity River and downtown Dallas, change in our neighborhood will be inevitable. This zoning study creates an opportunity for us to participate and shape that change. I believe that increasing the density is probably necessary to make the plan work. I share the concerns of how the parking will be handled. The density/use allowed should ultimately be supported by a viable parking plan and traffic study that specifically address a parking/access solution, which will vary depending on circumstance. This could occur in a more detailed effort that would presumably be part of the next phase of planning. Regardless of the allowable uses, densities and the associated building heights, each development proposal should be able to demonstrate a viable parking plan/traffic impact solution.
