and Southlake are among those that submitted projects for consideration. Bonds approved by Tarrant County voters may fund up to half the cost of a selected municipal project. Of the $400 million in bonds county officials will ask voters to approve, $200 million would be allocated for projects submitted by cities. The remainder would go to regional and multi-agency projects. About $75 million would be divided among the four county precincts for projects selected by commissioners individually. Commissioners are scheduled to greet the bond planning committee May 11. Ranking is scheduled to be done by August.

A consultant will help a bond planning committee rank nearly 200 projects submitted by cities for shared funding as part of a transpor- tation bond program that will go to Tarrant County voters in November. Officials received 195 projects from 24 jurisdictions. Officials haven’t yet analyzed and sorted the full list of submissions, so it’s unclear how many will be evaluated by commis- sioners, County Administrator GK Maenius said on April 27. The bond program seeks to increase mobility, reduce congestion, enhance safety and improve connec- tivity throughout the county. The cit- ies of Fort Worth, Keller, Colleyville

HEB expands North Texas presence with land purchase inAlliance area

BY SANDRA SADEK

we continue to look for the best real estate opportunities to serve all communities in the metroplex.” Cary Moon, Fort Worth District 4 City Council member, who announced the purchase on his campaign’s Facebook page, said this is “a big win for the area.” “The far north area of Fort Worth continues to see tremendous growth,” he said. “The school districts are good, the infrastruc- ture is getting built, jobs are close by, and there are plenty of retail options. Expect many more retail and entertainment options to become available to the far north of Fort Worth.” In late March, HEB announced two stores will be opening in Frisco and Plano by fall 2022. According to Moon, deed restric- tions require HEB to build within ve years of purchasing the land.

Texas-based grocery store chain HEB has purchased land from Hill- wood, a property developer, at the northwest corner of Heritage Trace Parkway and North Riverside Drive in the Alliance area of Fort Worth, an HEB spokesperson conrmed on April 22. The property is located near the Alliance Town Center. The land sale was nalized Feb. 4. No plans or timeline for a possible grocery store at that site have been announced. However, according to Mabrie Jackson, director of public aairs for HEB’s Central Market, the company often purchases land in anticipation of future needs. “The [Dallas-Fort Worth] metro- plex is an important market for us,” she said. “Our desire is to serve as many new DFW shoppers as we can in the future, and, as in prior years,

HEB adds to its presence in North Texas with recently purchased land in the Alliance area of Fort Worth. (Nicholas Cicale/Community Impact Newspaper)

PLANNING FOR THE FUTURE Grocer H-E-B has purchased land in north Fort Worth as a possible store site in the future. The company that originated in Kerrville has slowly moved into the Dallas-Fort Worth area with its Central Market brand. There are currently two Central Market locations in Tarrant County.

CITY HIGHLIGHT SOUTHLAKE The city of Southlake distributed over $877,000 from its allocated $1 million business relief grant program to local businesses aected by the COVID-19 pandemic. In total, 119 applications were received over the course of the 73-day application period. The majority were from businesses in the personal care and beauty industry as well as the education and instructional services industry, according to Daniel Cortez, director of economic development and tourism for the city of Southlake. Grants were distributed based on a three-tiered approach. A set amount of money was awarded based on certain criteria met. Those criteria were set by the city. The grants, up to $10,000, were funded using the Southlake Economic Development Investment Fund. “It’s been a little bit emotional hearing from so many of the businesses that are so thankful for the grant and letting the city and the city council have this opportunity for a lot of them to apply,” he said. The remaining amount of money from the program, alongside money from the American Rescue Plan recently approved by Congress, will be used to help out the city’s hospitality industry, namely the Hilton and Cambria hotels, Cortez said.

expenditures, but expenses so far have come in under budget. The district said it saved almost $3 million on payroll expenses, which came from hiring employ- ees with lower salaries as well as having unfilled roles and payroll docks. Costs related to the February winter storm have also come in under budget, though final numbers are still being determined, the district said. District staff continue to review financial projections. The budget will be amended this summer near the end of the 2020-21 fiscal year.

track to end the year with a $54 million fund balance. Revenue from several sources fell short of what was budgeted due to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the district. That includes lower enrollment in tuition-based programs, fewer facility rentals and waived fees for extracurricular activities. In total, the district saw $3 million less than expected. However, other sources, includ- ing additional tax revenue, brought the district closer to budget. The district budgeted a little more than $148 million for total

GRAPEVINE-COLLEYVILLE ISD After budgeting for a nearly $7.4 million deficit for fiscal year 2020-21, Grapevine-Colleyville ISD could see a loss of only about $4 million. DaiAnn Mooney, the district’s chief financial officer, gave an update at the April 26 board of trustees meeting. Though revenue has been below expectations this year, district documents show that expenditures have been even lower—almost $5.9 million lower. Any shortfall would be covered through the district’s fund balance.

the parent advisory council. “When I saw the discrepancies, the lack of consistency for special education services during the shut- down, that’s when I started getting interested in what a SEPAC [Special Education Parent Advisory Council] was,” McCaskill said. The idea of creating an advisory council was first introduced to the CISD board of trustees in spring 2020. Steering committee member Marissa Mahon said the district needed this group to be able to share resources to ensure consistency across all special education services. CISD’s advisory council was endorsed by trustees April 1 and officially launched April 17. Unlike other district councils, this one will

be led by parents. Such advisory councils can be mandated, but they are not required in Texas. Mahon andMcCaskill said they used the advisory council in Round Rock ISD for inspiration. The mission of the CISD SEPAC is to provide information and resources to parents by gathering input frommem- bers and identifying unmet needs. Those interested in learning more about the advisory committee can visit www.southlakecarrollsepac.org. “I really envision, personally, for this to be a very safe place for people of all disabilities and desires and aspirations for their children to be welcome and to feel valued and to help, collaborate and make this better and have a voice and engagement,” Mahon said.

GRAPEVINE- COLLEYVILLE ISD RELAXES COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS ON OUTDOOR EVENTS Grapevine-Colleyville ISD updated its 2021 spring guide, which addresses COVID-19 response on school campuses. The changes approved by the board of trustees go into effect for the remainder of the school year. Those changes include: • Elementary school students will no longer be required to use plexiglass dividers in classrooms. • Students under quarantine will be allowed to return to school after seven days if they test negative for COVID-19 and display no symptoms. • Visitors will be allowed back on campus at the discretion of individual campuses as long as visitors adhere to district safety protocols. • Limited outdoor events, such as field days and picnics, will be allowed on campuses. • Spectators at outdoor sporting events will be allowed to remove their masks when seated and socially distanced from other spectators. The update also clarified but did not change what social distancing requirements are for the district. The board will work later on crafting new guidance for the fall.

End-of-year events will be allowed to go as planned as long as health guidelines are maintained, such as graduation and prom. Masks will be optional for outdoor events. For events indoors, masks will be required. Graduation is expected to be held outdoors at Dragon Stadium. A survey was conducted among K-12 parents regarding the mask mandate for CISD students. Out of 4,994 responses, over 55% responded they do not want a change in the current mask rules. Another 34.5% said they wanted to see a change, and 9.9% said they wanted to see partial change, such as removing masks while outdoors for students. A second survey asked about the mask mandate for staff. Out of 4,994 responses, 59.4% said they did not want to see a change in mask rules for staff, and 31.7% said they want to see a change in the mask mandate for staff.

CARROLL ISD The district will now allow the optional wearing of masks by children and adults outdoors. The board of trustees unanimously approved the COVID-19 response team’s recommendation to provide adults and children the option to wear masks outdoors if social dis- tancing is maintained. Desk shields in classrooms will now be optional as well. Masks will remain mandatory on buses and in classrooms, per CDC guidelines. “I do believe it’s safe to let the children and anyone outside not wear a mask,” said Karen Flexer, nurse at Carroll Senior High School and mem- ber of the response team. “I feel like my goal is to keep the kids in school. I believe it’s important to have a little bit of normalcy back, especially [as] we’re finding out more and more every day on this virus.”

The Carroll ISD board of trustees adopted a new meeting format that begins July 12. FIRST MONDAY OF EACH MONTH: Board of trustees work session THIRD MONDAY OF EACH MONTH: Board of trustees regular meeting

BY SANDRA SADEK

CARROLL ISD The Carroll ISD board of trustees approved a new board meeting schedule for 2021-22 along with policies to promote better transparency and stream- line discussions. In a 6-1 vote, the board approved a policy amendment that will change the two regular meetings a month to one regular meeting on the third Monday of each month and a workshop on the first Monday of each month. The change also allows for new policies to be adopted in one reading rather than the previous two-reading requirement. The new format will be effective starting July 12.

CISD Superintendent Lane Ledbetter said this system still allows for board members and the public to meet twice a month to discuss various issues, but the workshop gives members and staff the opportunity to work in a more informal setting. Both meetings will allow for public comments, he said.
