Revitalize South Dallas Coalition was founded in 2012 by South Dallas residents working with Frazier Revitalization to strengthen neighborhood associations and leaders. That committee created RSDC to focus attention on economic development in South Dallas/Fair Park.


Dallas Leadership Foundation, an experienced community development organization, provides office space, administrative support, coaching, and planning expertise. 


RSDC was formed to link stakeholders with partners to strengthen neighborhoods, expand business opportunities, create jobs, and revitalize the area through consensus building around a unified, common vision.
