City Plans Open House and SPIN Meeting for the Consolidated Future Land Use Plan Update

In September 2022, the Planning and Zoning Commission began its regularly scheduled review and update of the Consolidated Future Land Use Plan.

The Consolidated Future Land Use Plan, a component of Southlake’s Comprehensive Plan, is Southlake’s vision for future development that serves as a guide for land use decisions and as a foundation for Southlake’s zoning and subdivision regulations.  The plan is a policy document that allocates the general location, concentration, and intensity of future development within the City by land use categories.  The current land use plan was adopted by City Council in June 2018.  This plan is updated regularly to address changing conditions and to keep the community’s vision and goals in mind.

This open house will be one of three public meetings designed to share information and accept public input on the City’s future development aspirations which will eventually be adopted as the Consolidated Future Land Use Plan.

Consolidated Future Land Use Plan Open House and SPIN Meeting schedule:

  • Tuesday, December 13, 2022, in Town Hall, 1400 Main Street
  • Open House Portion in Town Hall Lobby, 5:00 – 6:00 p.m.
  • SPIN Meeting with Land Use Plan Presentation and Q & A in Town Hall Council Chambers, 6:00 p.m.

“Future land use recommendations are essential for the continued growth and development of Southlake,” said Planning and Development Services Director Dennis Killough. “Resident input is highly valued throughout the planning process as the City develops the Land Use Plan.  The Open House provides an opportunity for our stakeholders to give us some great feedback.”

A draft version of the Consolidated Land Use Plan is available on the city’s website. There is also a feedback form that has been created for residents to submit questions or comments directly to planning staff regarding this plan.
