A Note from the Executive Director

So. Many. Things. In. April!

University Crossing is bustling with activity in April! The Angelika Mockingbird Station and The Highland Dallas are hosting the Dallas International Film Festival #DIFF2016, SMU is hosting a Community Day, and Central Market is launching Passport Mexico with authentic Mexican cuisine and cooking classes. 

We are also in the midst of street repairs on Mockingbird, which should be wrapped up by the end of the month, barring any additional rain. 

The UCPID board met on April 5, and we are moving forward on creating a master landscape and improvement plan to present to the City of Dallas in preparation for the 2017 bond. We have also ordered pet waste stations for Glencoe Park and are working to clean up the park for the various team games and practices that take place there. Further, we are working with the city's Parks and Rec Department to discuss improvements and plans for the Mockingbird bridge and trail as construction commences late this spring or early summer. 

We continue to take UCPID security very seriously and remain engaged with a dedicated Extra Neighborhood Patrol seven days a week. Several UCPID businesses have installed their Hide.Lock.Take. signs and that is helping to keep motor vehicle burglaries down and raise awareness in University Crossing. 

I would also encourage you to try THREE new things in University Crossing this month, you won't regret it! 

  1. A yummy cheese empanada from Pollo Tropical located at 4622 Greenville Avenue.
  2. Take in a softball game at Glencoe Park on Thursday nights - you might be surprised by who you see on the roster!
  3. Book a cooking class to learn how to make authentic Mexican appetizers at Central Market.

In the meantime, if you have any questions, please email info@universitycrossing.com

Have an awesome April!
