Dallas County postpones Oak Cliff Government Center groundbreaking ceremony

Dallas County Commissioner Dr. Elba Garcia (District 4) announced today that the Oak Cliff Government Center groundbreaking ceremony scheduled for Wednesday, March 18 is postponed until further notice.

In an email to Dallas County community, staff and residents, Garcia said: 

“Due to the recent evolving of the COVID-19 virus, we regret to inform you that the upcoming groundbreaking ceremony for the Oak Cliff Government Center is now cancelled. We understand how important this event is to our community, staff, and residents of Dallas County. The health and safety of our valued Dallas County Employees and constituents is a top priority. Please be aware that we are working diligently to reschedule this event and we will notify you once we have confirmed the new date and time for the Oak Cliff Government Center groundbreaking ceremony. We thank everyone for their support of the project!”

The Oak Cliff Government Center is a $27.6-million-dollar project scheduled for completion in March 2021. The final facility on this two-acre site will be a two-story, 43,000-square-foot and LEED-certified building that will provide an update to County services in District 4 and surrounding areas. 

“This facility is community-focused and will enhance Dallas County’s reputation as a great place to work and do business,” said Garcia.

The government center will house the Dallas County Justice of the Peace, Truancy, Constable and Tax departments. The project will also include the construction of a three-story parking garage with 240 parking spaces.
