Correction: Greater Space at HPUMC

An article in the August 2016 print edition of Park Cities People incorrectly reported the University Park City Council approved a plan during its July 5 meeting to raze the Biggers Building at Highland Park United Methodist Church and build a new family activities center.

At press time, Park Cities People confirmed the report with a University Park official. That confirmation was later retracted.

The council held a public hearing on the issue but did not take any action. A subsequent vote scheduled for July 19 was postponed at the request of the applicant so that it could make a slight modification to the proposal.

University Park Community Information Officer Steve Mace said that council has no intention of backing away from project approval, and will likely take up the issue again in August.

We regret the error.
