From the Office of Councilmember David Blewett
While this year’s St. Patrick’s Day parade and the street party that traditionally follows have been canceled, the Dallas Police Department and the City of Dallas will still take proactive steps to ensure that local businesses who choose to celebrate the holiday remain compliant with local laws and regulations. Though businesses will remain open, residents are strongly advised to maintain adherence to the latest CDC guidelines, avoid crowds, and maintain six feet of distance from others.
The Dallas Fire Department, Dallas Police Department, Code Enforcement, TABC, and Parking Enforcement will maintain a physical presence on Lower Greenville. Off-Duty, reserve, mounted officers, and other response team divisions will be on stand-by for any necessary assistance.
The City of Dallas and the Dallas Police Department would like everyone to enjoy their weekend, but please do so safely. Remember not to drink and drive, and to be respectful of others. If we work together, we can move towards returning to the popular events of years past.
