Here again is another attempt at Dallas trying to shut down its historic entertainment district. This time, a charter school wants to move into the neighborhood. Why does this matter? "According to Dallas city code, a bar or night club can not operate within 300 feet of a school unless it was in business prior to the school’s opening. This means that existing bars near the proposed charter school will be grandfathered in. However, if a nearby bar goes out of business and the building remains vacant some time, city code is likely to prevent a new bar from opening in the vacant building" (see link below for reference). If that happens, all of the revitalization efforts will be a wasted effort. Click on the link below for more information.
