There is plenty of work to accomplish over the next decade in Mansfield, TX and Casey has several ideas that will make Mansfield an even better place to live. He campaigned on a simple platform that focuses on three key areas: Property Tax Relief, Controlled Sustainable Growth, and Enhanced Quality of Life for Mansfield residents.
During Casey’s first term on the city council he is actively working to improve development and quality through zoning ordinance changes, challenging developers to increase their standards, and seeking the best quality of balanced growth between residential and commercial development. He is also engaging in the budgeting process with city staff to set new spending priorities that include property tax relief for homeowners. Casey’s main focus is on the future of Mansfield and the type of city we will become in the next 10-15 years. He wants to make sure we maintain the small town community feel while we continue to grow and bring in more amenities and activities that enhance our quality of life.
