City Council District 8
A Letter from Council member Tennell Atkins
Mayor Pro Tem
Greetings Friends and Neighbors:
District 8 continues to be one of the most progressive districts in the City of Dallas. Our District has grown! Census numbers show that our district outgrew the City of Dallas. The number of residents in our district increased by 14,822 since 2000; an 18.12% increase whereas the City of Dallas as a whole gained 9,236 people. Residents are continuously moving to our District because of the strong educational infrastructure and development opportunities, plus the most open space and undeveloped land in Dallas.
