There was definite headway made this week on the Republic Ranch/ Pilikia case.

An article in the Dallas Morning News published yesterday evening sums the story up very well.

THANK YOU to the neighbors who showed up to support the City of Dallas who is trying to make the establishments operate within the zoning of PD298. It was noticed by the court that there was a presence of concerned citizens.

WE NEED YOU! If you can, please come by the hearing Monday, July 23rd at 9:30- even if you only have 30 minutes or an hour.

191st district court, George Allen Courthouse- 7th floor
Address: 600 Commerce St, Dallas, TX 75202.
