From our friends at Park Cities People:

The agenda for this evening’s University Park City Council includes a proposed name change for Airline Road/Dublin Street to Bush Avenue. The city staff is in favor of the change, which was requested by SMU, for two reasons:

1. SMU is building student housing along the road, and that likely will lead to emergency calls once the students move in. Having one name for that road will cut down on confusion on the part of callers/dispatchers.

2. The name change will affect only SMU and the George W. Bush Presidential Center. Nobody else owns property on that stretch of road, between Mockingbird Lane and SMU Boulevard.

For many reasons, I imagine these signs will be oft-stolen.

    That big rectangle is actually a ‘black site.’
