High stakes for UP park vote

On May 12, University Park residents will decide whether to sell a tiny park that could have big consequences for the city, while voters in Richardson and Addison will elect City Council members.
Four seats on the Richardson school board will be on the ballot. Highland Park ISD is expected to cancel its election for lack of contested races.
University Park voters will be occupied with a single issue. Although Potomac Park occupies only a sliver of town real estate, residents will decide whether it should be sold to Southern Methodist University. The land could be used as part of the Bush presidential library if SMU officially lands the facility.
