As Dallas continues to mature and it enters the next stage of civic life, we will witness transformation marked by progressive urban, cultural and architectural changes. However, progress is never far from growing pains as exemplified by the recent Supreme Court decision regarding Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs v. The Inclusive Communities Project, Inc. This case rendered Texas’ current affordable and low-income housing tax credit allocation unconstitutional, and its subsequent decision has forced many developers to re-consider their development strategies and will have architects re-examining what neighborhood context looks like. This Supreme Court decision will impact our definition of neighborhoods in Dallas, and it can give birth to a vibrant and exciting phase of our city’s growth if we allow it to. This panel discussion will explore all of those possibilities, and how what may be viewed as a setback might invigorate the neighborhoods of our city.
