SHAWN McCASKILL
FOR SOUTHLAKE CITY COUNCIL PLACE 2

After years of volunteer service to the City of Southlake on the Planning and Zoning Commission and the Zoning Board of Adjustment, I am excited about the opportunity to continue serving my fellow residents of Southlake on City Council.

As a member of the Planning and Zoning Commission, I have maintained a consistent voting record of mandating low density development and only the highest quality commercial and residential projects (large and small) that exceed the basic requirements of Southlake’s ordinances. Although some projects might be acceptable to other cities and communities, I have demanded that developments in Southlake be different and better. With the Southlake 2030 Plan as my guiding principle and blueprint, I have adhered to our community’s values and goals of “Planning Today for a Better Tomorrow.”

MY RECORD AND VOTES AGAINST (1) KROGER TOWN & COUNTRY AND (2) MULTI-FAMILY RESIDENTIAL RESIDENCES IN TOWN SQUARE

At the November 20, 2014 Planning & Zoning Commission meeting, I made the motion to deny the Kroger Town & Country project and I voted to deny that application.  The Planning & Zoning Commission agreed with my motion by a vote of 5-2 and denied that application.  In addition, at the August 22, 2013 meeting, I voted against the multi-family residential residences in Town Square.
