CITY COUNCIL APPROVES THE ALAMO DRAFTHOUSE MOVIE THEATER
AT RICHARDSON HEIGHTS SHOPPING CENTER

The City Council unanimously passed the Alamo Drafthouse Movie Theater proposal on Monday night. You can read all about it in today’s Dallas Morning News or in several locations online.

This is a big deal for Richardson and an even bigger deal for our area! We feel this theater will enliven the Richardson Heights Shopping Center and bring us some additional quality shopping and dining in the near future. It’s just the type of quality infusion that our neighborhood perimeters need yet it fits the character of our ever-popular neighborhood.

GROUND BREAKING!

Heights Park Rec Center/Aquatics Facility + Gymnastics Center

Yesterday, Tuesday, May 15th, City dignitaries attended the Ground Breaking for the new Heights Park Rec Center and Aquatics Facility as well as the new Gymnastics Center!

The architects and developers have set an aggressive schedule and say the new facilities will be completed in May of 2013 — one year!

Work is starting today at Heights Park so it will be fun to watch the process and progress. And we’re lucky to have Stephen Springs, our HPNA Civic Chair, as one of the lead architects on the project. We know that he and his family will be keeping a close eye on the project!
