There is a difference between our two Mayoral candidates in Louisville.
Bob Muckle’s approach to leadership is to listen to his constituents and pay attention to the details in any proposal.
Here are some examples:
1. The Gateway Subdivision , west Louisville
Bob Muckle, along with Mayor Sisk and the majority of City Council, voted to honor the long held agreement worked out with the neighbors, the city and the property owner by voting to deny a new developer an increase in density. That original agreement was put in place in order to create a pleasant entrance to our city, provide a natural transition of open space to homes and avoid a significant safety access issue.
Bob’s opponent ignored the neighbors and that agreement when she voted to increase the density.
2. Conoco Phillips.
We all hope that they will come to Louisville, but we need to be prepared and protected if they don’t.
Bob’s opponent voted for Conoco’s request to change the City’s planning process to allow “vesting” or “use by right” at the preliminary planning stage instead of at the final stage.
Bob recognized the potential difficulties this policy change might present to Louisville. Therefore, he supported Conoco Phillips, but did not support the change to our planning process.
In recent Comprehensive Plan discussions Bob’s opponent advocated for allowing commercial areas to be rezoned for residential use. She was not able to get support for this idea and it was ultimately not part of the revised comprehensive plan. Bob has maintained that it is important to our community’s fiscal vitality to keep those areas zoned commercial especially at a time when we are working hard to attract and maintain our retail base.
Bob’s experience and leadership will serve us well.
Vote Bob Muckle for Mayor of Louisville.
