Even though the project’s Big Reveal isn’t happening until Monday, the phrase East Dallas Is … has been making the rounds on social media for a while now as the excitement builds as to just what the announcement might be.
The grassroots effort is a partnership between the Greater East Dallas Chamber of Commerce, White Rock Partnership, neighborhood organizations across East Dallas and several neighborhood associations.

Today, East Dallas is home to our Ebby’s Lakewood and White Rock/Lake Highlands offices and the Ebby House at Juliette Fowler Communities, an innovative transitional community for young women who have aged out of foster care.
