UA Rezoning Request Approved by Dallas City Plan Commission

The Dallas City Plan Commission on Thursday afternoon approved Ursuline Academy's proposal for a lighted athletic field on campus with a vote of 14-1.

More than 150 parents, students, and friends filled Council Chambers at Dallas City Hall with a strong showing of support for the Academy's request.

"We are very pleased with today’s decision by the City Plan Commission to approve Ursuline’s rezoning request," said Bill Dahlstrom, member of the Ursuline Academy Board of Trustees and the school's lead representative at the meeting. "This approval is a major step forward in making a much-needed new athletic field a reality for our students."

"Ursuline is grateful to everyone in our community who is supporting this effort," Mr. Dahlstrom continued. "We are also thankful to our neighbors who have engaged with us in productive, positive dialogue to help shape this project. We look forward to taking the request on to the Dallas City Council."
