SOUTHLAKE (CBSDFW.COM) – Carroll Independent School District is moving forward with plans to install lights at the district’s baseball and softball fields despite opposition from the city.
On Monday night, the district agreed to spend $100,000 to place trees between the lights and surrounding homes. This comes less than two weeks after the Southlake Planning and Zoning Committee voted down a request that would have allowed the lights to be installed.
The district’s plan also sets a limit of 25 games, plus playoffs, for which the lights would be on.
Residents in surrounding neighborhoods have adamantly opposed the lights, claiming the late-night crowds and lighting would impact property values.
The school district will make its case to the Southlake City Council on Tuesday night.
