As part of our 25th year, Uptown Dallas Inc. (UDI) is thrilled to announce the new formation of the Uptown Young Leadership Council. Young professionals living and/or working in the Uptown district are encouraged to join this council and help make a difference in the Uptown neighborhood.

The Young Leadership Council will work together to establish, create and guide 4 projects per year to fruition.


  • Public Art
  • Public Safety
  • Maintenance
