1. Flashing school zone signs are going to be installed on Lone Oak and Glendale Lane! Hopefully this will slow traffic a bit for folks trying to safely walk to school and to the park! Installation is expected by the end of January. Big thank you to Councilman Pulley for getting this done.
2. The sidewalks along Granny White, connecting the park to Lipscomb University, are finally being poured. Thanks to Public Works for this project, and to the families along the route who have had to put up with all that site preparation. They look great so far! (note that the very first part poured does not have a grass strip but that the rest will)
3. A Hillsboro High School Renovation meeting will be held on Thursday from 6-7pm at the high school. The announcement says that two designs will be offered - one to keep the existing front facade and one to create a new design.
But how will the rest of the lot be planned? Can we make the fields in the back a park, open to the public, with a walking path for community use? Will sidewalks be planned to allow kids safe access to walk or bike to school? If you care about this part of the renovation, please attend the meeting or email School Board member Mary Pierce at firstname.lastname@example.org and Councilman Pulley at email@example.com.
