You've heard of the "dog days of summer" but now the Town of Addison is putting a twist on the phrase. The outdoor pool at the Addison Athletic Club is scheduled to close (for humans) on September 1st.  However, the first annual doggy dip day will be held on Saturday morning, September 20th, from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm. If you are an Addison resident with a membership card to the AAC (one-time $10 fee for as long as you live in town), come out and support the dogs! All participating dogs must have a 2007 or 2008 rabies tag or proof of vaccination. The fee is $5 per dog. Humans will not be allowed to swim.

Beat the Heat in Addison, Texas! Of course Addison has all the usual ways to beat the heat with water, but there are other ways in town to stay cool, too. The obligatory water sources include both the indoor and outdoor pools at the Addison Athletic Club, where any Addison resident can become a member for a one-time $10 fee that is good for as long as the resident lives in the city.   You can watch the ducks and swans float along in the man-made lake in the Les Lacs subdivision.         Or enjoy the many fountains throughout Addison, such as the one on Beltline Road at Winwood where the gazebo is frequently the setting for bridal pictures; or the fountains and shallow pools at Addison Circle, home of the massive Blueprints sculpture. If you want to stay dry and cool: Visit Addison Squar...

There's a new restaurant on Restaurant Row (better known as Belt Line Road) in Addison, TX.  Al-Amir, a Lebanese restaurant and club opened at 3885 Belt Line Road a couple months ago.  The original Al-Amir at 7402 Greenville Avenue in Dallas is still open. Out of the blue, I got a call from Sandy Moses, the marketing director for the new Addison location.  She called to thank me for information she found useful that I had posted to Active Rain and to Localism about Addison's top companies, and she invited me and a friend to come by for the lunch buffet. Last Thursday, I took Sandy up on her offer.  The food was fabulous!  You've got to try the lemon rice soup if you get there.  Everything on the buffet was fresh and even a vegetarian won't leave hungry. In addition to the main dining ar...

Join the Addison (Texas) Pacesetters (individuals 50 years old or older) for fun, exercise, healthy competition and social interaction every Wednesday at 10:30 am this summer.  Nintendo's Wii connects to the TV and brings to life favorite games, such as tennis, bowling and golf.  A wireless handheld device takes you through the motions of the game. There is no cost (it's FREE!) but you must sign up at the front desk at the Addison Athletic Center, where the activity will be held. You can also sign up for a $10.00 boxed lunch.

Strong financial management and performance, a high level of reserves, below-average property tax rate, and a healthy economic outlook are just some of the reasons why the Town of Addison is one of only five cities in Texas to attain a AAA bond rating. Over the next 10 years, two-thirds of the Town's outstanding debt will be retired.  Additional factors for the boost to the AAA rating include Addison's policies regarding budgeting practices, investments, long-term financial and capital planning, and reserves and debt management.  Way to go Ron Whitehead, our city manager, recently name the North Texas Public Administrator of the Year!

Everything you ever wanted to know about Addison but were afraid to ask!  Sign up for the 5th almost-annual Addison Citizen's Academy that begins August 1st.  Have fun and learn about the town. I'm a graduate of the 4th Academy, 2006.  Twenty five of us Addison residents gave up 4 Saturdays to spend with town employees, learning about the city council, Conference & Theatre Centre, Environmental Services department, the fire and police departments, Special Events (and Addison has lots of those), parks & recreation department, and even the public works department. We got to go back stage at the WaterTower Theatre, inside a water tower, into the control tower at Addison airport, and other interesting places around town. To learn more about this program, contact Mario Canizares, Assistant C...
