The track at Germany Park will be closed for resurfacing from October 11 through October 31, weather permitting.

During this three week period, the track will be cleaned so that an additional layer of impermeable surfacing can be applied. The track will also be restriped and marked. These enhancements will provide everyone who uses the track, including HPISD teams, with a better surface for walking, jogging or running for many years to come. Thank you for your patience!

Coming to an alley near you! Atmos is in the process of replacing old gas lines that run through the alley. Understandable. When replacing the alley surface, however, not only is the contractor replacing the concrete they dug up with asphalt, the contractor is not even packing it down. Northstar just threw piles of asphalt over the holes and let the residents pack it down with their cars. Is the City doing anything to quality control Atmos? Was throwing piles of asphalt down approved by the city? It’s a shame because the city spends a lot of money repairing our alleys, which encourages people to park in their garage instead of crowding our streets. I encourage the City to come down on this contractor like a steamroller.
I understand our city has become the "Seattle of Texas" over the past month, however, the situation with the fields at Curtis and Caruth Parks, both baseball and turf, needs some thought. The fields seemed to be closed more often then they are open. The times they are open (June, July, August), no one is really using them, thus making the fields pretty useless. Either make the fields better, or resign yourself to repairing the damage periodically. A pretty field that is unused benefits no one. Most of us have a quarter of an acre at best and I personally need to bleed energy off my seven-year-old much like the space shuttle re-entering the earth atmosphere.
Got you! #hooklineandliteracy #childrensfishingderby
Great day at Caruth! Snagged 13 fish in a row!
Just another reason why we love our community! THANK YOU, David Vartian-- City of University Park Sanitation Supervisor. You turned a mundane inquiry into a fun phone conversation. Your energy, caring, and authentically interested approach, is exactly what makes this community wonderful!
Good Sunday afternoon.. anyone in the market to purchase or sell a home reach out to Mandy Cole Real Estate she is awesome!
Please remind residents that it is past time, per City rules, for political signs to be removed.
City of UP, On your website, Instead of telling residents to put their plastic bags in the trash, perhaps direct them to a site that that locates local plastic bag recycling bins. For example, http://www.abagslife.com/find-a-recycle-center/
