The City of University Park is missing a couple of key pieces of the democratic process in the City Charter which are standard in most cities, including Highland Park and Dallas.

They are:

1. The ability to hold a recall election of elected officials

2.  The ability of residents to bring forth ordinances

University Park Residents for Neighborhood Friendly Development has developed a petition to amend the City Charter for those points and we are looking for volunteers to help obtain signatures at the UP voting sites on election day: Tuesday, November 8th.

You can sign up via the Sign Up Genius link below and we really appreciate any time you can give to this critical step.  You will be given an explanation of the petition to hand out as needed.  Thank you in advance for your help and we look forward to seeing you next Tuesday at the polls!
