      *Stuart Hall Update
      *Readers Write
      *News Roundup


      Last week, Stuart Hall School's expansion hit
      a roadblock -- although one they hope to barrel
      their Humvee over by getting Councilmember Batt
      to overrule the Historic District Landmarks
      Commission (HDLC). The Housing Conservation
      District Review committee (HCDRC) voted
      unanimously to deny Stuart Hall's request to
      demolish three houses, two at Spruce and 1 at
      Panola in order to expand their school into
      the residential fabric in this Carrollton

      But these guys won't go away easily, and they are
      expected to appeal this decision as well as the
      HDLC's landmark status of the 8142 and 8132 Panola

      In other news, another neighborhood association
      has joined the protest of Stuart Hall's expansion.
      The Upper Carrollton Resident's Association has
      lent their voices to the calls to stop Stuart
      Hall's incursion on residential space.

      Take Action!

      Stuart Hall representatives are expected to make
      their move at the next city council meeting.
      Save These Houses and the Urban Conservancy urge
      public attendance and comment on this issue.

      Send an e-mail to Jay Batt and urge him to do the right
      thing by the community and protect the landmark status
      of the other homes. Other alternatives are available.
