January bond meetings in Lake Highlands

Two meetings this month offer a look at Dallas’ proposed 2017 bond package and an opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback to neighborhood representatives. The gatherings will continue conversations started at similar meetings last October, according to District 10 representative Adam McGough. At the time, talk of a new library and street and trail improvements took precedence. The conversation has changed a bit since the police-fire pension fund crisis came to light.

Wednesday, Jan. 11 from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Willie B. Johnson recreation center in Hamilton Park, 12225 Willowdell.

Tuesday, Jan. 17 from 6-7:30 p.m. at Lake Highlands North recreation center, 9940 White Rock Trail.

Brush up on what has been discussed so far, here.

The Dallas City Council voted to cap the May 2017 bond program at $800 million — how it will be divvied up remains a big question.
