| Our Issues

The next few years are a critical time for Cedar Park.  With most of our available land already developed, we have entered into a new phase in the growth of our city.  It will be the responsibility of our leadership to make smart, informed decisions so that Cedar Park can continue to grow into an inclusive, diverse community where people of all ages want to live, work and play.  Our path to continued progress can be found by focusing on these key priorities:

| Safety

Our residents expect to be safe in their homes and on our streets. That’s something that doesn’t happen by luck or chance. We need to continue to invest in our first responders to to keep our community safe.

| Traffic

Williamson County’s population is expected to double in the next 20 years. As our region continues to grow, we need to be prepared for an increasing burden of traffic, and to keep all options on the table if we are going to prevent our current traffic problems from worsening into the soul-crushing gridlock.

| Continued Growth

Lee Iacocca famously said that in business, you “either lead, follow or get out of the way.” The same could be said for cities. Cedar Park needs to continue to be a city that welcomes start-ups and small businesses as well as larger businesses, so that more of us can work closer to where we live and reduce the city’s reliance on residential property taxes. Most of all, we need to continue to attract the creative entrepreneurs and knowledge-economy professionals that will allow our city to flourish for years to come.

| Parks

“Park” is in our city’s name. With tremendous assets like Lakeline Park and Brushy Creek available to us, Cedar Park should take its rightful place as the home of the best community parks in the region. Whether you’re looking for a place to walk your dog, wear out your kids or find a quiet moment, we should have numerous options for you.

| A diverse range of neighborhoods

If we want to continue to attract the best talent in our businesses and schools, we need to offer a full range of homes and neighborhoods to accommodate the desires of the young, old and those in between. Walkable neighborhoods, quality green space and interesting restaurants should be accessible to all of us.

| Fiscal Responsibility

If we are going to build the Cedar Park of tomorrow, we need to manage our finances with that in mind. Our city government should continue to operate efficiently, reducing the tax burden on families while continuing to invest and enrichen the lives of our residents.
