North Richland Hills, TX - Mayor Charles Scoma

Mullendore-Dan Echols Project

Located in an older part of town, the Dan Echols Senior Center was once North Richland Hills' City Hall and is an important part of the City's heritage. Limited parking, however, made it difficult for seniors to utilize, and so the City proposed to the Birdville Independent School District that the adjacent Mullendore Elementary School make some of its unused land available for a new Senior Center parking lot. In exchange, the City used CDBG funding to build the parking lot, a new playground for the school and a bridge over the creek which separates the two facilities. As a result, school students have a new playground and the seniors can park conveniently when they use the center and can sit outdoors and watch the children play.
