The Spring Valley Athletic Association and Richardson ISD are considering turning the field surrounding Lake Highlands Elementary into a multi-use athletic field for SVAA leaguers. According to an RISD spokesperson, “The school is in initial stages of gathering information, and has yet to make a decision about whether to pursue the idea further.” CBS News indicates that “a battle” over the possible use of the land is underway — a reporter spoke with a nearby homeowner who did not seem particularly combative, but did say she opposes the idea due to potential traffic and noise issues. A partnership between SVAA and RISD would be nothing new — five other RISD schools have similar land sharing partnerships with SVAA.
