This week’s edition includes a story about the Board of Adjustment granting Preston Hollow United Methodist Church permission to erect an 8-foot fence next to the playground primarily used by students at the Preston Hollow Childhood Development Center.
The church’s senior pastor, the Rev. Michael Nichols, did not return a phone call seeking comment for that story. I also left a voicemail for (and sent an email to) Margaret Hamilton, the chair of the Childhood Development Center’s board of directors, who represented the church before the Board of Adjustment. After the paper went to the press, she emailed me this:
“We will be landscaping the area on the northern side of the playground to serve as a noise buffer and to beautify the area.”
