Here’s a quick look at what city council members will discuss Wednesday, regarding Lake Highlands.
The council will vote on a construction contract to build a new park pavilion at McCree Park. Designs are completed, Henneberger Construction Inc. can start building next month, finishing by January. The project costs $110,000, taken from 2003 bond funds.
We may have a new piece of public art at the Dallas Arboretum. A sculpture design has been approved by the Public Art and Cultural Affairs committees. The council just needs to authorize a contract with the studio, Legge Lewis Legge LLC, which would begin building the sculpture next month, installing it by February 2014. It’s paid for in the 2006 bond program.
An item of more general interest affects the Trinity River Corridor Project. Someone may have to save the threatened mussels that call the Trinity River home. With guidance from Texas Parks & Wildlife, the native, freshwater mussels might have to be relocated. The council will vote on whether to spend $147,512 for Halff Associates Inc. to investigate what could become a costly issue.
