Barry Annino, University Crossing Director

I am proud to send this inaugural newsletter for University Crossing - the recently formed Public Improvement District (UCPID) encompassing the area defined by North Central Expressway (US 75), Mockingbird Lane, Greenville Avenue and Lovers Lane. The UCPID began with a group of business and property owners who felt our area had the potential to claim its own region and personality within the Dallas city limits. The area is transforming into a vibrant mix of uses including education, retail, office and residential - and the goal of the PID is to elevate these businesses to create one dynamic district. These visionaries went to City Hall, met with the district property owners, and the plan was agreed to and passed by Dallas City Council. We now have been approved to tax ourselves, with the tax dollars managed by our Board of Directors, and to receive enhanced services for our area. What we have created is our own district named University Crossing.

My job as Executive Director is to oversee the security, beautification, capital improvements, promotions, and spending, as well as serve as your voice, along with all of our committee chairs, before the Dallas City Council. I hope that you enjoy these monthly newsletters, and please feel free to reach out to me with any questions, concerns or good news to share at ba@universitycrossing.com.

Please visit our website at  www.universitycrossing.com  and stay tuned for a new website that will feature a directory, events calendar and more! We have many new projects taking place over the next year and I look forward to keeping you informed of all the exciting developments.
