Planning for the future in Southlake: Southlake 2035 underway

The next phase of comprehensive planning in the City of Southlake is moving forward with Southlake 2035.

In the last few months, the City of Southlake has adopted two components of Southlake 2035 Comprehensive Plan: the Economic Development Master Plan and the Tourism Master Plan.

Now under consideration by the City Council are the Southlake 2035  Vision, Goals & Objectives and the State Highway 114 Corridor Plan. City staff recently presented more information about these elements at the May 9, 2017 SPIN (Southlake Program for the Involvement of Neighborhoods) Town Hall forum.

Southlake 2035 Vision, Goals & Objectives

The Vision, Goals & Objectives define the values of the community and set the framework and the tone for each of the Southlake 2035 plan elements. They reflect changes in the community since the Southlake 2030 plan was adopted, and address new plan elements that are included in the scope of the Southlake 2035 Plan.

State Highway 114 Corridor Plan

The SH 114 plan establishes a future thinking, detailed land use plan for the corridor.  With features such as the Texas Turnaround, Carillon and TD Ameritrade amongst the approximately 1800 acres with the Southlake city limits, the plan will help guide discussions about growth and conservation.

The work of establishing the strategy is assigned to the 2035 Corridor Planning Committee.  The committee was appointed by the City Council and consists of elected and appointed officials who worked to create recommendations for land use on both a site-specific and citywide basis. These recommendations are adopted with the SH 114 Corridor Plan and responsibility is assigned to City departments for implementation. The plan and recommendations guide land use, zoning, and resource allocation decisions for the next five to seven years.

Next Steps?

City Council is currently scheduled to consider both Southlake 2035 plan elements at their June meetings:

June 6, 2017 – 1st Reading
June 20, 2017 – 2nd Reading (Public Hearing)
