Welcome to Wynnewood North

Our neighborhood is located in Oak Cliff north of the Wynnewood Village Shopping Center and was named "Best Neighborhood in Dallas" for 2012 by the Dallas Observer! The neighborhood is bound by Vernon Avenue on the west, Zang Boulevard on the east, West Illinois Avenue on the south, and West Clarendon Drive on the north. The 820 acres of the entire Wynnewood neighborhood originally belonged to farmer John M. Wright until 1913 when American Home Realty Company bought the land with plans for future development.

Angus G. Wynne, Jr. envisioned the Wynnewood Addition as a modern development with efficient, well-designed, high quality houses located in a self-contained community complete with a nearby shopping center and convenient access to downtown. Located directly north of the Wynnewood Village Shopping Center, Wynnewood North’s larger lots and mature oak trees attracted both the noted architect, Bud Oglesby, as well as the Hare & Hare landscape architect firm. Today, with its large shaded lots, cohesive houses, and proximity to I-35, Wynnewood North neighborhood preserves the atmosphere and convenience of an original, post-war American suburb.

    Please see information below regarding the proposed conversion of Two Way Streets:  N. Tyler and N. Polk. 

    Cost proposal 3.1 million and 2017 bond funds for streets, sidewalks and "other needs".

    The proposal is to make N. Polk a two way street with only one way in each direction. There will be a bike lane as well as 8 ft. parallel parking. N. Tyler will be two ways with 2 south bound lanes and 2 north bound lanes and parking which actually reduces it to one way in each direction. A roundabout will be built between Winston and Canty.

    If you are for or against this proposal please make your comments/concerns known. The person to address your issues to is: Kimberly Smith. She is in Thoroughfare Planning and is on the City Plan Commission Transportation Committee. She can be reached via email: Kimberly.smith@dallascityhall.com or by phone at 214-671-8172. She assured me she would make sure your comments/concerns are known to the City Plan Commission.

    DATES to NOTE:

    May 5 - The City Plan Commission Transportation Committee will meet on May 5 at 9:00 am at City Hall in the Council Chambers. This is a technical meeting to review findings and make recommendation to City Plan Commission. This is NOT a public meeting but you can sit in and listen to the review.

    May 19 - The City Plan Commission Transportation Committee will present their recommendations to the City Plan Commission. The meeting is at City Hall in the City Council Chambers at 1:30 pm. I'm not sure if this is a public or private meeting.

    June 22 - The City Plan Commission will make a recommendation to City Council whether to approve this project or reject it. This is a public meeting and you can listen and/or speak.

    I've requested Scott Griggs to post the Traffic Impact Analysis on his web-site. Several have asked for this report but none have been able to get their hands on it. Hopefully he will post it as I have requested.

    The City of Dallas Sanitation Services is launching a new mobile app for residents to find their collection schedules and sign up for reminders. The app is free to download on all Apple and Android mobile devices. Once residents download and sign up for the app, they can receive a personalized collection calendar and receive automatic reminders via email, tweet, voice mail and/or text. 

    The app can be downloaded by searching Dallas Sanitation Services or go to www.DallasBulkandBrush.com. The app also has information on how to properly reuse, recycle, compost or dispose of various materials. 

    Once residents have the app or are signed up online, they will receive weekly reminders and will also be notified of schedule changes due to weather, holidays and upcoming events. Additionally notifications can be sent with information on seasonal campaigns such as electronics recycling, batteries, oil, paint, and antifreeze collection, Christmas tree recycling and more. 

    “City of Dallas residents recycle over 55,000 tons of material a year. It’s now even easier to learn about solid waste management in our community with our new online tools and mobile app,” Manager of Zero Waste in Sanitation Services Murray Myers said. “If you’re always on the go, this is a great way to stay up to date on your garbage, recycling and bulk collection schedule.” 

    While Sanitation Services will continue to produce and distribute printed waste collection calendars to residents, they hope this added online service will help to reduce call volumes, while improving customer service and response times.

About Us

Wynnewood North encompasses 350+ homes located in North Oak Cliff on a hilly, scenic location. Recently we have been known in the press as the "neighborhood where friends are family". And clearly that is evident through the large participation of our neighborhood get-togethers, with neighbors who have grown-up in the neighborhood, and/or who have family still living in the neighborhood. Whether you are newcomers or old family friends, a friendly smile and a handshake are extended to all!

The Wynnewood North Neighborhood Association was created to promote and encourage the safety, improvement and beautification of the neighborhood. Membership is open to all residents or owners, over the age of 18, of property within the boundaries of the neighborhood and we always need volunteers for various projects, events or day-today activities. If you can help in anyway or are interested in serving on the board, let us know.
