Happy New Year! 2023 will be another big year for The Loop Dallas and we are excited to share the latest news about our Board Leadership:

The Loop Dallas Board members: Vana Hammond Parham, Rick Perdue, Linda Owen

Rick Perdue Named President of The Loop Dallas Board

We are proud to announce Rick Perdue as President of our Board of Directors.

Almost 10 years ago, Rick identified a connected trail system as the next catalyst public project for Dallas and began working toward this goal. He connected with Philip Henderson and Willis Winters to ensure this effort would unite our city and stand the test of time, establishing The Loop Dallas along with Larry Dale, Jeff Ellerman, Linda Owen, and Mike Terry.

Rick continues to be a driving force behind The Loop Dallas’ development and we are excited for 2023 and beyond under his leadership.

Larry Dale Joins The Loop Dallas Executive Committee

Larry Dale joins Rick and Jeff as the third member of The Loop Dallas Executive Committee.

Larry’s experience and passion for The Loop Dallas have allowed us to accomplish many “firsts” for Dallas, including our first trail passage under an active freight rail line.

Through our Board’s participation, we are setting a new standard that can be replicated across Dallas and connect trails into the future.

The Loop Dallas Board members: Larry Dale, Philip Hiatt Haigh and Terrence Maiden
