    The founding executive director of the Dallas Arts District has resigned.

    The district's governance committee Wednesday announced the resignation of Veletta Forsythe Lill, effective Nov. 1. The former Dallas City Council member has led the nonprofit arts group since 2009.

    Lill says she's spent 15 years working for arts development and preservation in Dallas and wants more time with her family.

    A search committee has been created to find a successor for Lill.

    The 68-acre Dallas Arts District is the largest contiguous arts district in the country.
