We are so proud of our first responders for their quick response and service, and grateful for the team at Texas Health Presbyterian for their amazing work that resulted in resident Kevin Gregory's survival story!

Each day, at least 60 Texans suffer an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, according to the Texas-CARES program. Across the nation, out of all the individuals suffering from a cardiac arrest outside the hospital, unfortunately, less than 8% end up surviving. Kevin Gregory is grateful he’s not part of that fatal statistic. The Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas patient and proud father of two is looking forward to Father’s Day this Sunday. Gregory survived a cardiac arrest, and during a recent city council meeting at University Park, he thanked those who played major roles in his survival story. According to Gregory, it’s hard for him to put his gratitude into words. “God put the right people in our path, every step of the way.” See the recent presentation by clicking on the University Park’s city council link here: https://bit.ly/3xx5GWm.

Today, a dredging contractor will begin removing silt from the Caruth Park ponds. Comprised mainly of trash, leaves and grass clippings, silt builds up as debris flows into our waterways. Sediment removal improves both water flow and water capacity. This particular dredging effort is a “wet” process that does not require draining existing water.

For your safety, temporary fencing has been set up around the ponds. Although this will limit some park activities, the playground areas will remain open, with access through the park's east side. Weather permitting, dredging is expected to take about four weeks.

Traffic advisory update -

Shortly after 4:30 this afternoon a pickup truck struck a traffic control cabinet on the southwest side of the Hillcrest/Southwestern intersection. After striking the cabinet, the vehicle continued to travel west on Southwestern before rolling on its side three lots from the intersection in the front yard of a house under construction. Early reports indicate the driver lost control of his vehicle as he approached the Southwestern/Hillcrest intersection from the west. The driver was transported by UPFD with unknown injuries. He was only one in the vehicle. No one else was injured. A wrecker is on scene.

Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT), the governing body that oversees the electric grid in Texas, is asking all Texans to reduce electric use as much as possible today through Friday, June 18.

A significant number of forced generation outages combined with potential record electric use for the month of June has resulted in tight grid conditions.

Customers can help by taking the following ERCOT conservation steps:

• Turn off any unnecessary lights and equipment
• Turn thermostat up 2 to 3 degrees
• Set programmable thermostats to higher temperatures when not at home
• Use fans to feel 4 to 6 degrees cooler
• Limit use of large appliances (dishwasher, washer, dryer)
• If you cook indoors, use a microwave or slow cooker
• Close blinds and drapes during late afternoon
• Schedule pool pumps to run in the early morning or overnight hours.

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/
