Mr. Ralph Castro, past president (2007-2009) and founder of the Southeast Dallas Hispanic Chamber of Commerce was born and raised in Pleasant Grove when it was predominantly a white community. Today, the southeastern area of Dallas has boomed, and its population is more than 50 percent Hispanic. Mr. Castro’s paint and body shop, along with a plethora of small Hispanic businesses, has prospered.
The Southeast Dallas Hispanic Chamber of Commerce believes that in order for Dallas to become a premier international city and leader in a 21st century economy, it must first develop the southern sector including Pleasant Grove. The Pleasant Grove area of Southeast Dallas is primed for economic development with more land mass and population growth than any other neighborhood in greater Dallas.
