Dallas Public Spaces Facing Millions of Dollars Worth of Damage After Winter Storm

On March 5th, it was reported that a Dallas Library lost more than 38,000 books as a result of the winter storm according to an NBC 5 DFW article. In it they say:

“The Renner Frankford Library in far North Dallas is throwing away more than 38,000 books after last month’s winter storm caused significant damage to the building.

Dallas City Councilwoman Cara Mendelsohn tweeted pictures of the damage and explained that along with thousands of books, much of the library such as check-out desks, furniture, and all things with upholstery will need to be replaced.

The District 12 Councilwoman said the library holds many memories of the local community, and she hopes to find a viable solution soon.

Until a solution surfaces, library users are able to turn in their checked-out materials or order books for pick up through Library to Go at Timberglen Library or Fretz Park Library.”

Now, it seems that Dallas Parks and Recreation facilities have incurred millions in damage due to the storm according to a separate NBC 5 DFW article from March 14th. In it they say:

“On March 4, the Dallas Park and Recreation Department released a report detailing millions of dollars worth of damage to 87 department facilities, including the Dallas Zoo, Dallas Arboretum, aquatic facilities and recreation centers.

Though the cost for many repairs for Fair Park have not been determined, the report estimates damage to the Hall of State caused by burst pipes will cost about $3.7 million to fix.

Photos from inside the Hall of State from The Dallas Morning News show peeling paint and artifacts laid out to dry.”

It’s been a whole month since the devastating winter storm battered through Dallas and other parts of Texas, and recovery is still underway for many.
