Highland Park ISD Trustees Officially Schedule $361 Million Bond Election


3636 Amherst Avenue

3636 Amherst Avenue is one of our newest homes for sale in Highland Park ISD.

Our friends at Park Cities People report that the Highland Park ISD Board of Trustees on Tuesday called a $361 million bond election for Nov. 3. That’s $3 million more than what was proposed by the district’s Facilities Committee back in June, but when you’re talking about hundreds of millions of dollars, what’s three million more, right?

If approved, the bond issue will allow the district to create a fifth elementary campus on land purchased from Northway Christian Church before razing and rebuilding three of its four existing elementary schools. The money will also go toward renovations and expansions at the intermediate school, the middle school, and the high school.

I’ve heard of no organized opposition to this $361 million proposal so far, but there is a precedent for such resistance in Highland Park ISD.

In 1992, a $35.45 million bond proposal was opposed by a group called Responsible Citizens for Education. Nonetheless, the package was approved (59 percent to 41 percent) in an election that saw a robust turnout of 28 percent.

Six years later, the district brought a $76.1 million bond issue to voters with plans to build a fifth elementary school plus make additions and improvements to other facilities. This one was opposed by two groups: the Park Cities Taxpayers Association and Park Cities Citizens for Responsible School Solutions. Voter turnout that time was a staggering 52 percent, and the proposal was soundly defeated (61 percent to 39 percent).

The district’s most recent bond election was a tame affair in 2008, when a $75.4 million proposal was approved in a landslide election (91 percent to 9 percent) with a paltry turnout: 9 percent.

I expect things to be a little more contentious this time around. Already, the conservative watchdog group Empower Texans is questioning the necessity and transparency of the $361 million proposal.

Highland Park ISD Residents Invited to Provide Feedback on $358M Bond Plan


3128 Southwestern
3218 Southwestern Boulevard is one of our newest homes for sale in Highland Park ISD.

As most residents of Highland Park and University Park know, this is a critical year for their shared school district. With all six of the Highland Park Independent School District campuses over capacity, a committee of community members has hatched a plan to provide some relief.

As you might expect, the plan — which includes renovating the existing schools and buying land to build a fifth elementary school — isn’t cheap. The district’s Facility Advisory Committee is recommending a $358 million bond issue that will go before HPISD voters in November.

In the meantime, Park Cities residents are invited to provide feedback on the committee’s plan. Public forums have been scheduled for 7 p.m. on July 28 at Highland Park Middle School and 7 p.m. on July 30 at Highland Park High School.

Some University Park Residents Want Limos to Move Along in Timely Manner


Limousine

“You can’t park here, Jeeves.” (Photo by Thinkstock)

University Park officials may soon forbid limousines and luxury buses from parking on the city’s streets for extended periods of time.

At Tuesday’s City Council meeting, City Manager Robbie Corder said his staff has fielded a few complaints about limos being parked overnight on residential streets. So the staff proposed adding limos and tour buses to a city ordinance that already prohibits leaving mobile homes, motor homes, and boat trailers unattended “other than for the immediate loading or unloading of such vehicle.” Violators of said ordinance are subject to a $200 fine.

The City Council voted to send the proposed changes to the city’s Public Safety Committee for further study.
