Southlake Program for the Involvement of Neighborhoods (SPIN)
SPIN, the Southlake Program for the Involvement of Neighborhoods, are Town Hall Forums hosted by the Community Engagement Committee usually about twice a month to provide an opportunity for community members to have an informal conversation regarding topics of interest.
The most frequently discussed items are development cases. The SPIN Town Hall Forums provide a place to discuss proposed developments and hear feedback from residents before a case goes before the Planning and Zoning Commission or City Council.
If you have an item you would like to discuss at a SPIN Town Hall Forum, please review, complete and return the SPIN Application Request Form to the staff liaison, Madeline Oujesky, in the Planning and Development Services department indicating your desired meeting date. For more information regarding available meeting dates or deadlines for submitting requests, please contact Madeline Oujesky at the email shown to the right of the page, or by phone (817) 748-8070.
Following SPIN, a proposed development may be submitted to the Planning Department, reviewed by staff, and scheduled for a Planning and Zoning Commission meeting. The item would then be eligible to move forward to City Council for consideration.
SPIN reports are provided to the Planning and Zoning Commission and the City Council to capture and communicate community input throughout the process. For additional information about the development process in Southlake, please visit the Current Planning Page.
The Active Planning and Zoning Cases web page is a great way to keep track of development cases as they move through the process.
