The Overlook at Spicewood Springs

Beginning in January 2015, Council Member Gallo worked with neighborhoods and HOAs to ensure their concerns were addressed as part of a re- zoning application.  CM Gallo was an advocate for making sure the scale of the proposed development was reduced and made professional office a conditional use during last year's zoning case This provided protection to surrounding neighbors by ensuring the site plan would be reviewed by the ZAP Commission while also providing an opportunity for neighbors to voice any additional concerns about the proposed site plan.

Sheri Gallo has been Addressing Critical Issues

Through Policy Decisions

 CONCENTRATE ON OUR TRAFFIC GRIDLOCK and continue to support policy decisions which will ease our traffic nightmare by adding roads,  improving our existing roads and intersections, synchronizing traffic lights, expanding our bus system and encouraging staggered work schedules.

REDUCE SPENDING of city dollars on downtown projects and SUPPORT spending on our neighborhoods.

PRIORITIZE SPENDING ON CORE SERVICES such as police, fire, EMS, replacing aging infrastructure, increasing wildfire protection, and improving neglected neighborhood parks and libraries.

FIGHT TO LOWER PROPERTY TAXES.  Support the multi-year phased in 20% permanent homestead exemption for property owners and  increase the homestead exemptions for seniors and our disabled community.

STOP RUNAWAY SPENDING BY OUR CITY GOVERNMENT. Sheri's policy decisions from the dais reflect her fiscal conservative view.



As a residential Realtor for the past 35 years, I've sold and leased homes to hundreds of Austin families.  I understand how important controlling affordability and protecting the character of our Austin neighborhoods are to maintaining our quality of life.” – Sheri Gallo
