Project Lead - Sef Okoth

The Pemberton Hill Target Area is one of twelve Neighborhood Plus focus areas. The Pemberton Hill area is located in District 5 and District 8, generally bounded by Pemberton Hill Rd to the west, Great Trinity Forest Way to the South,  Jim Miller Road to the east and I75 to the northeast. Neighborhood Plus is a comprehensive neighborhood revitalization strategy for the City of Dallas.

Pemberton Hill has experienced many unique challenges that have impacted its development character, economy, and social fabric. Still, the neighborhood provides a wealth of opportunities for housing, business, education, and recreation within a relatively small area. However, as it transforms, it is experiencing challenges that undermine its livability. In response to these challenges, the City of Dallas initiated a planning process, under the direction of Councilmember Callahan and Deputy Mayor Pro Tem Wilson to identify short-term actions and a long-term revitalization strategies. Together, the City of Dallas staff, residents and other stakeholders have developed a Strategic Neighborhood Action Plan (SNAP) built around a community-based process that reflects the interests and needs of residents and stakeholders.

SNAP (Strategic Neighborhood Action Plan) calls attention to needed improvements and reaffirm residents' and the City's commitment to the neighborhood. It primarily focuses on identifying actions to encourage the long-term sustainability and enhancement of the neighborhood. The key themes of the SNAP include neighborhood appearance, property maintenance, public safety, infrastructure improvement, and economic development. Read more about this process.

An Open House was held on September 14, 2017 for a community review of the Pemberton Hill Strategic Neighborhood Action Plan. Read the Strategic Neighborhood Action Plan (SNAP).
