The Oak Lawn Committee was formed in 1982 to respond to the initial planning strategy developed by the Oak Lawn Forum and the Urban Plan Department of the City of Dallas. The OLC is organized to address quality of life issues for the greater Oak Lawn area, such as lessening the burdens of government, lessening of neighborhood tensions, combating community deterioration, and most recently the erection of public monuments -- specifically the Legacy of Love Monument at the Oak Lawn Triangle. The Oak Lawn neighborhood was defined in Dallas city ordinances as Planned Development District No. 193 (link to the City Code), the Oak Lawn Special Purpose District. The district is generally bounded by Woodall Rogers Freeway, North Central Expressway, the City of Highland Park, Inwood Road, Harry Hines Boulevard. It is almost 15 square miles in area. It is split between Dallas City Council Districts 2 and 14.(Click here for a map.) The Oak Lawn Committee is a forum wherein those involved in and committed to the Oak Lawn area can exchange information and be a vehicle by which those citizens can provide input on a continuing basis to all interested parties.
