Lowell Moore has been active with Cedar Park issues for more than 15 years. He was Vice President and later President of his home owners association. As President of the association he was instrumental in helping the City, land owner, and neighborhood come to an agreement on land use on 714 acres adjacent to the neighborhood. This remains the largest single zoning issue in the history of Cedar Park.
In 1998 Lowell was elected to the Cedar Park City Council. He remained on the Council for just over 2 terms, serving more than 4 years. While on the City Council, the citizens mandated through referendum that the City establish an Economic Development Corporation (4A) and a Community Development Corporation (4B). Lowell served dual roles for several months, both as a Councilman and as a member of the 4A board. The City Council had asked Lowell to serve on the 4A board to help it “get its legs” when it was in its infancy. Lowell remained on the City Council until 2002. During his terms the City made great progress. Lakeline Boulevard was extended from Buttercup Creek Blvd. to Highway 1431, Cypress Creek Road was rebuilt to four lanes (it had been two lanes), two fire stations were built, the library was expanded and the police and municipal courts building was approved for construction. In addition, a long term water agreement was reached, providing water for Cedar Park for decades. During this time, Cedar Park was recognized as the fastest growing city in its size group in the state of Texas.
After leaving the City Council, Lowell remained an active participant and observer of the City’s growth and development. In 2006 he was appointed by the City Council to the Economic Development Corporation Board. Lowell's fellow board members elected him President of the Board. During his tenure on the 4A Board, several development agreements were reached bringing hundreds of jobs to Cedar Park. The 4A Board was also instrumental in assisting a hospital group to build the Cedar Park Regional Medical Center.
One of the most notable projects of the 4A Board was the decision to fund and build an events center. That structure, now known as Cedar Park Center, opened in September of 2009. The 4A Board and the Cedar Park City Council negotiated a deal with the Hicks Sports Group to bring the American Hockey League affiliate of the Dallas Stars to the Cedar Park Center (CPC). All of the home games (40 of them) of the Texas Stars are played there. The National Basketball Association (NBA)'s San Antonio Spurs affiliate, the Austin Toros, made Cedar Park Center its home in 2010. In addition, top name concert acts, circus shows, ice shows, bull riding, and other events are hosted by the CPC. This brings family oriented and price friendly entertainment to the citizens of Cedar Park and the surrounding area. Importantly, it will bring out-of-town visitors to Cedar Park, where they will spend their dollars and add to our sales tax revenues.
Lowell was elected again to the Cedar Park City Council in 2008 and he still proudly serves as a citizen representative.
Lowell served as a Senior Vice President for a Fortune 500 company and later became a management consultant for an international consulting firm. He opened his own management consulting practice in Cedar Park in 1994.
Lowell and his wife, Hetty, live in Riviera Springs in a home originally purchased by Hetty in 1972, prior to Cedar Park becoming a City. Lowell and Hetty have watched Cedar Park grow and develop as a city and a major force in Central Texas. When Lowell was first elected to the Cedar Park City Council, Cedar Park had just over 5,000 residents. Today, Cedar Park has more than 10 times that number.
