Keeping us Uniquely Cedar Park

Many things have changed in Cedar Park in 20 years, but some things have remained the same-the city continues to be a safe, family friendly and affordable community.

 

Cedar Park represents some of the best qualities offered in our great state:  exemplary schools, safe neighborhoods, dedicated Public Safety Professionals, a strong business community, countless entrepreneurs, beautiful parks and trails, and new opportunities.

Cedar Park has been committed to creating spaces and venues that are unique to our area.  The Council has worked together, actively listened to ideas and considered the feedback from local residents, to ensure we are moving in the right direction to grow responsibly.

With growth, comes Challenges, I have the experience and commitment to see us through the many broad decisions the City and Council face, in the coming years.
