Ursuline Academy seeks athletic fields again

Ursuline Academy, the all-girl catholic school at Walnut Hill and Inwood is seeking to create athletic fields again. About 10 or 11 years ago their request was turned down when neighbors objected to the fields and the lights that go with them.

The new zoning request is asking for a soccer and lacrosse field at the corner of Walnut Hill and Inwood. However this request reduces the height of the lights with a time limit of 9:00 p.m. for their use. There will be no concession stand, restroom facilities or loud speakers and the bleacher space will be minuscule.

As a mom of an Ursuline graduate, I can attest that the school needs the athletic space. The boy schools in the area certainly have plenty of athletic facilities. As a Realtor, I don't see this improvement having any negative effect on property values. Hopefully a friendly agreement can be reached this time between the school and its neighbors. [where: 75230]

They will say whatever the neighbors want to hear. But they will agree to no restrictions in the deed. Then when they have tricked the neighbors with talk of "we only care about you" they will go ahead and do whatever they want and dare anybody to stop them.
