The Greater Casa View study area is bounded by Garland Road to the west; Interstate 635 to the north; La Prada Drive, Oates Drive, and Ferguson Road to the east; and Peavy Road and Buckner Boulevard to the south.
The Greater Casa View Alliance (GCVA) was
established in 2010 as a “super-neighborhood group” composed of neighborhood
leaders and business owners with the objective of unifying Far-East Dallas
neighborhoods. The need for a guiding plan for this area became evident to
leaders of the GCVA, who initiated a volunteer-led and community-informed
planning process. City of Dallas
staff from the Department of Planning and Urban Design provided oversight and
guidance throughout the Greater Casa View Area Plan effort. The Plan serves as
a guide for future development in the area.
GCVA intends the Plan to be a guide for how to improve existing assets in a
real and tangible way by encouraging sustainability and connectivity throughout.
Residents felt connectivity is the key way to implement this.
Plan outlines four visioning focus areas: development opportunities, streetscape
and greenspace, Harry Stone Recreation Center, and gateways and identity. At
the heart of this plan is the central theme of connectivity – it seeks to
connect Casa View to the urban core, to White Rock Lake, and to surrounding
neighborhoods and cities.
