St. Patrick’s Events and Cautions

Once again we’ll see St. Patrick’s festivities on Lower Greenville, but this year the celebration will be the Saturday after St. Patrick’s rather than the traditional Saturday before St. Pat’s. The Lower Greenville block party, the Upper Greenville parade, and all associated events will this year be on Saturday, March 19. For more details, see other posts on this site.

Since December, Lower Greenville Neighborhood Association volunteers have been working with City staff, the Dallas Police Department, other neighborhood associations, and local businesses to lessen the negative impact on our residential area.

Temporary no-parking signs will be posted by neighborhood volunteers on Thursday evening, March 17, but enforcement will not begin until Saturday morning.

If you normally park on the street, plan ahead because no-parking signs will be posted on one side of the street. Police make no exceptions for residents, and folks on several blocks have had difficulty parking in front of their own residences in previous years.

Don’t forget about businesses on Lowest Greenville south of Belmont. The City has promised that sidewalks will remain undisturbed until after St. Pat’s, so please consider patronizing the businesses on Greenville south of Belmont. The massive construction has negatively impacted every business, so why not make an effort to go by and get a pizza, sandwich, t-shirt, or a nice meal over the weekend. Or maybe spend the afternoon strolling and shopping. These businesses supported the Lower Greenville area when they took a chance to open a business in the area. Let’s help them out.
