Fair Park seeks partner to study parking, traffic at Fair Park

DALLAS – April 9, 2021 — Fair Park First, the non-profit manager of Fair Park, is searching for a qualified professional consultant or firm to conduct a parking and traffic study on and around the historic 277-acre campus. This study aims to ensure that access to Fair Park is maintained without overwhelming the surrounding neighborhoods and roads’ capacity to absorb such traffic and protect the property owners’ rights of both the City of Dallas, tenants, and surrounding property owners.

The opportunity was released through a formalized request for information (RFI) on www.fairparkfirst.org. Submissions are due to Fair Park First by 5:00 PM on Friday, April 30.

The parking and traffic study is a part of Phase 1 of the Fair Park Master Plan Update, which aims to restore and put the “park” back in Fair Park. Phase 1 also includes creating an 11-acre Community Park that will replace over one thousand parking spaces at Fair Park.

Recently, Fair Park First, along with partners Spectra, Biederman Redevelopment Ventures (BRV), and Studio-MLA, launched the design process for the Community Park. This process includes a series of public meetings designed to engage neighborhood leaders, residents, local partners, and other grassroots groups in developing the Community Park.

The second round of virtual meetings will be held on April 27 (in English) and April 29 (in Spanish). Interested community members can register to attend by signing up at www.fairparkfirst.org/communitypark.
