Community Stats


 Estimated median value of an owner-occupied housing unit between 2013-2017. The value is based on survey respondents' estimates of how much their properties and lots would sell for if they were for sale. Medians were suppressed in cases where the sample of the average was less than 10 of the unit that is being described (eg, households, people, householders, etc).  




Tax Increment Financing


The City's tax increment financing (TIF) program identifies under-performing real estate in the City, develops redevelopment plans, works with private developers to implement these plans and reinvests a portion of property tax revenues generated from new real estate development into the area to encourage the implementation of the redevelopment plan. The City of Dallas currently has eighteen active TIF districts. The creation of new districts is considered based on set criteria and requires the approval of Dallas City Council. 

There are two TIF districts that impact the Cedars Area, the Cedars TIF and The Transit Oriented District (TOD) TIF
