Information on the proposed recommendations of the Land Use Sector Plans and the Consolidated Future Land Use Plan, elements which will be included in the Southlake 2035 Land Use Plan update, will be presented during the event.

The first element (SH114 Corridor Plan) was adopted by City Council in June 2017.
The second element (FM 1709-FM 1938 Corridor Plan) was adopted by City Council in December 2017.

Land Use Plan Open House

  • 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. Open House Portion
  • 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. Land Use Sectors Plan Presentation with Q&A

This plan includes all four sector plans – the North Sector Plan, Central Sector Plan, West Sector plan and Southeast Sector Plan and encompasses all of the land area in Southlake outside of the three major roadway corridors.  The Land Use Sectors Plan addresses each of the four sectors separately, providing an overview of the existing land use, mobility and environmental resource considerations, discussing planning challenges and issues, and providing specific recommendations.

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

A draft version of the Land Use Sector Plan and the Consolidated Land Use Plan are 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.

City of Keller Hosts Open House of Regional Jail and Regional Animal Adoption Center- February 22, 2014

The City of Keller is hosting an open house to give residents a sneak peek of the $8.6 million renovation and expansion of the Regional Jail and Regional Animal Adoption Center on Saturday, February 22, from 2:00p.m. to 4:00p.m. at the Keller Police Department Headquarters, located at 330 Rufe Snow Drive.

This 21,000 square foot facility will enhance the animal shelter and jail capacities and services that partner cities Southlake, Keller, Colleyville, and Westlake utilize. This expansion follows the merger of  Colleyville, Keller, Southlake and Westlake’s Animal Services operations on Oct. 1, 2012. The cities of Southlake and Keller partnered on jailing efforts in 2007 after approving Tarrant County’s first merger of emergency dispatch services.

The adoption center will be managed by the employees of the Humane Society of North Texas and will not euthanize adoptable animals or for extra space. The expansion offers about four times the current capacity for dogs and doubles the capacity for cats. It includes a 1,700-square-foot dog courtyard, a medical area for minor surgical procedures, a larger adoption and socialization area, and room to expand the center’s volunteer program.

This open house will be the only opportunity for the public to tour the inside of the new jail facility, as it will not be open to the public after operations begin. Renovations to the regional holding facility more than tripled the number of cells, offers additional security for employees and short-term detainees, upgraded technology and even provides a kiosk at which family members and friends will be able to pay detainees’ bonds.

For more information about this facility, please contact the Keller Police Department at 817-743-4500.
