In a new development that is surprising to no one, city officials said Thursday that the ForwardDallas comprehensive land use plan won’t go to City Council for approval until after the panel returns from a July recess.

City Plan Commissioners determined last week that they want to hold a day-long public workshop beginning at 9 a.m. Monday, June 17, to discuss proposed revisions to the plan before making a recommendation to Council.

That means the City Plan Commission will vote on the document at its regular meeting on June 20. The Dallas City Council originally expected to review the document and vote on it in June. Interim Planning and Urban Design Director Andrea Gilles said that’s not going to happen.

“It will just go in the fall,” she said. “It won’t be able to go to them until August at the earliest.”

The news of delayed adoption may be a relief to those who don’t like the plan as it stands and those who are concerned it’s getting too “watered-down” to be useful.

A public hearing on ForwardDallas is scheduled for 6 to 9 p.m. May 9, virtually and in person at Dallas City Hall.
