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.READ MORE: Appeals Court Ruling Keeps Abortion Ban In Place In Texas
