The Southlake 2030 Committee has had to slow things down lately due to the holidays and increased workload. Things are picking back up, though, and the Committee will likely be meeting monthly until the summer. To recap what the Committee and City Council has accomplished thus far: they have passed a comprehensive “Vision, Goals & Objectives” statement for the City; passed and begun implementing the Wayfinding Sign System Plan; and created the North, West, Central, and Southeast Sector Plans. The Economic Development & Tourism Strategic Plan is also working its way through the approval process (see upcoming meetings below).
Coming up this Spring, the Committee will consider the “FM1709/FM1938 Corridor Plan;” the “SH 114 Corridor Plan;” and special Small Area Plans for the southwest corner of Southlake Blvd & Carroll Avenue and the area bounded by Kimball, Crooked and Nolen.
