When you search for a gift idea or a way to honor a loved one’s memory, give the gift of trees by adding to the Dilworth neighborhood’s tree canopy.
You can give a unique and green gift to celebrate events such as birthdays, holidays, graduations, weddings, new births, anniversaries, or any special occasion.
Trees are a defining feature of the Dilworth neighborhood. And to be good stewards of our environment, we need to replace the trees we are losing to storms, disease, old age and development. This Tree Tribute Program will allow us to plant more trees sooner!
A tree planted as a gift or in someone's memory is a living tribute that benefits present and future generations.

Response to Recent Media Coverage
Dilworth is a historic district and the neighborhood has been concerned about saving the Leeper & Wyatt building since the property owner filed for demolition on December 8, 2021. Subsequently the DCA has collaborated with 3 different developers in an effort to save the historic building. Since we began working with the petitioner the DCA has consistently maintained that we want to save the building and abide by the ordinance. The DCA and the Dilworth neighbors support saving the Leeper & Wyatt building.
The petition presented at the Council Hearing on Monday, September 18 did not include the technical revisions required by Planning Staff per the UDO. The language regarding the 10 leased off-site parking places was unenforceable. The DCA's request on Monday night was simply to include lease language that is enforceable. The DCA has not opposed any other exception requested by the petitioner and is asking the petitioner to continue to cooperate with us and the Planning Staff in order to save the Leeper & Wyatt building.
