The event is a fundraiser for the next phase of funding for Bellaire Town Square. The current curfew for the park is 11 p.m. through 5 a.m. Council will meet at 7 p.m. Feb. 16 in the Council Chamber at City Hall, 7008 S. Rice Avenue.
Tents in Town is an urban campout for Bellaire children and their parents to spend the night in tents in Zindler Park on March 28. Funds raised will be used for a playground, pavilion, skate park, donor plaza and an interactive water feature and the great lawn in Bellaire Town Square. The event will be a joint effort with Patrons, the Parks and Recreation Department and local Cub Scouts and Girl Scout troops.
