Oak Cliff Gateway TIF District

Island Spot (OED-Patskin)_MG_9418
The Oak Cliff Gateway TIF District is bordered by I-30 on the north, the Trinity River Corridor on the north east and 12th Street on the south. The district was created in 1992 to promote the redevelopment, growth and stabilization of the area. The district was created for a period of twenty years with an expiration date of December 31, 2012.

In subsequent years, several amendments extended the term of the district and expanded its size. In 2014, City Council created two sub-districts within the Oak Cliff Gateway TIF District: (a) Oak Cliff Gateway Sub-District (original district boundary) and (b) the Bishop/Jefferson Sub-district (an expansion area of approximately 193 acres to accommodate future development planned in the Bishop Arts and Jefferson Corridor area). The term of the Oak Cliff Gateway Sub-district was further extended by five years to December 31, 2027, and the termination date for the Bishop/Jefferson Sub-district was established as December 31, 2044.
