    You may have noticed some minor changes to our neighborhood website recently. The purpose of these changes are to make it usable on both traditional workstations as well as smart phones and iPads. This is a multi-part process. The first part involves standardizing all the font sizes and headings on each page. Once that is complete, we will select a new template and start porting content over to the dual-use format.

    Other Changes Coming Too

    Additionally, as part of the process, we are improving some usability issues. For example, similar content is being re-organized into specific menus and formal landing pages are being created. An prototype example of a new landing page can be found under the menu option "About Wynnewood North". Example shown to the right.

    One area where you may notice immediate change is the 'Membership Resources' menu. This menu was formally called 'Login' and held content that was restricted to neighbors only--specifically that included only the neighborhood directory and the association bylaws.

    The new menu option has both restricted access content and non-restricted content. New restricted access pages include the following:

    New non-restricted access pages include the following:

    Several pages were moved from the home menu into the non-restricted access area. These include:

    The changes you are seeing now may not be permanent. Pages may shift back and forth as we delve deeper into the project. The board has a committee and process outlined for updating the site, and the activities you see are 'testing out the waters' to see some options available during this project.

    Stay tuned to our blog for more information regarding updates.

    It is with great pleasure that the WNNA board announces a name change to Wynnewood North. As of April 1, 2019, Wynnewood will now be called Far South University Park.

    The board has been working over the last several months with University Park officials in an effort to secede from Dallas to become one of Dallas County's premiere cities. 

    While details still need to be worked out with the City of Dallas, the name change will take effect immediately. Sign toppers, street signs, and the neighborhood signs at Mayrant, South Manus, and Monssen will be updated in the coming weeks. 

    Other changes you can expect are:

    • The George W Bush Presidential Library will take ownership of Gannon Park and Wynnewood Parkway, establishing a nature preserve and brush cutting area. 
    • The Woolsey triangle will become part of the SMU south campus.
    • The Mayrant triangle will become a police substation and approval of an underground fire station has been granted. Neighbors should brace themselves for some heavy explosions as the infamous Oak Cliff Shale is dynamited out to accommodate a full size fire engine. 
    • A new Dart train will run along the same tracks as the the current red line, directly from Tyler Station to Knox/Henderson/SMU station called the Park Cities South Connector. Residents of Wynnewood North will be allowed free travel.

    It is expected that the Wynnewood Shopping center will also be annexed, and new landscaping will restore the original creek that ran through the property. If annexed, Far South University Park hopes to build a concert hall designed by Guggenheim to host the Park Cities Orchestra and Chorale. Tyler Station and the Mormon Church also are petitioning to join the newly designated municipality.

    When asked why the move, WNNA Board President Denise Redquart noted the following:

    "The shenanigans that the city of Dallas played on Oak Cliff residents back during the annexation vote of 1903 has never sat well with our residents. We are making our voice known that we are a strong and independent people, proud of or heritage and ready to return to our roots. Now is time for our homecoming."

    Stay tuned for further details.

    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 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.
