WHAT WE REPORTED:
In November 2017, Highland Village residents approved a $7.15 million bond package—$2.86 million for street improvements and
$4.29 million for parks and recreation improvements. Scott Kriston, Highland Village public works director, said street improvements are expected to be completed by summer 2020.
A bid for Unity Park’s new softball field went out in December, and the field is expected to be done by the fall. Unity Park’s Kids Kastle will be replaced with a new but similarly styled play area in 2019. The city was also expected to finish adding 50 spaces to its Brazos Park parking lot in December. The construction of a sidewalk on Highland Village Road from Municipal Complex to Sellmeyer Lane is in the design phase. The replacement of Victoria Park’s walking track is still under review, but engineering and design services have been secured for the project.
