District 3, the most student-heavy district in College Park, has three candidates running in the Nov. 5 elections for its two seats.
College Park has only ever used urban renewal in Lakeland — a historically African American neighborhood in the city — in 1970.
Currently, the city’s mayor and council members serve two-year terms. The council can make its own decision on the issue regardless of voting results.
They've been asking for their own community center for the last ten years.
