Flower Mound council passes resolution regarding school rezoning

The Flower Mound Town Council unanimously adopted a resolution addressing the school rezoning controversy at special meeting Friday afternoon.

Although the final decision on the elementary and middle school rezoning is the responsibility of Lewisville ISD Trustees, council members felt that their voices should be heard.

“When an issue arises that concerns our residents to the extent that this issue has, it is not only necessary, but it is our responsibility to weigh in,” said councilman Bryan Webb.

In the resolution, town officials offer to assist Lewisville ISD with researching and developing scenarios that balances student population in a manner that least impacts residents. It also calls for the district to appoint a new committee with a broader scope and more data. Read the full text of the resolution here.

“This resolution does not tell LISD what to do. This resolution offers ideas and suggestions that came from our residents,” said Webb.

“This resolution adds an additional voice for our residents. Anyone who would infer this resolution to be an insult towards LISD or the volunteers who are serving on the rezoning committees would be wrong. I respect everyone who is working to find the best solution.

“It is my hope that the district will hear the ideas of Flower Mound’s parents and residents; consider what they have offered, and find a way to incorporate their ideas into the ultimate decision.”

The second of two public meetings to discuss the four rezoning proposals currently on the table is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 12, at the Lewisville High School Harmon Campus, 1250 West Round Grove Road (FM 3040), Lewisville, TX 75067.
