Scope and Content
Prior to a formal city planning agency in the City of Dallas, property and land related issues (excepting deeds and title transfers, a County function) were heard and adjudicated by standing committees which then made recommendations to the Mayor and governing board.
Collection consists of a single manuscript letter of petition to Mayor William L. Cabell from E. G. Bauer, requesting the City of Dallas to prevent the planned enclosure of a parcel of land adjacent to Bauer’s property. The petition was referred to the Committee on Streets and Bridges on July 3, 1883. Disposition of the petition and request is unknown.
The collection is arranged chronologically.
