Mayoral Candidates Forum this Wednesday


The two candidates for Richardson Mayor, Amir Omar and Laura Maczka, will meet for a mayoral candidates forum Wednesday, March 27th.

The Richardson Republican Women and Dallas County North Republican Club are sponsoring the event, which will be held at 7:00 p.m. at Canyon Creek Country Club, 625 West Lookout Drive in Richardson.

The forum will be moderated by Justice Mary Murphy, and the public is encouraged to attend.

You owe it to yourself to see what these candidates have to say in a debate-like setting. Make your mayoral election decision based on first hand, face-to-face knowledge.

2013 HPNA Membership Drive & Flag Program

We’re getting quite a few NEW MEMBERS! Thanks to all of you who’ve sent in your membership dues. We appreciate your contribution to make our neighborhood even better than it already is! Your membership dues help us continue to keep our neighborhood safe, strong, vital, and valuable!

Our membership fee is $20/year. And if you wish to participate in the Flag Lease Program, the fee is $40/year for the Flag Program alone. But to participate in the Flag Program you must be a Heights Park N.A. member, so the total fee for membership and flag is $60/year.

(If you’re not able to send $60 at one time, we recommend paying your HPNA membership dues of $20 first. Then, if you wish to participate in the flag program, you can send in your flag money of $40 prior to Memorial Day. Our first flag flying holiday is Memorial Day.)

HPNA Membership $20/year
Flag Program Participation $40/year (5 holidays)
(Must be a paid HPNA member to participate in the Flag Program)
Increased cost due to cost of flag manufacture

You can begin sending in your 2013 HPNA membership dues now! Visit our website:; click on Membership.


We’ll be inviting more Heights Park residents to join NextDoor Heights Park, a program sponsored by the City of Richardson Police Department. It’s a site where the Police Department can post area police activity for us, but also a site our residents can use to post neighborhood news, advertisements, post lost and found items, start groups, etc. Over the next few days, we’ll begin inviting even more Heights Park neighbors to join. You don’t have to join, of course, but check it out here! It’s just another way we can communicate with you and a fast and easy way the Police Department can get word to us about any criminal activity, scams, or other items of community interest.
