Whether it's to exercise, enjoy one of our many parks, or walk the kids to school. Southlake residents have asked for more sidewalks, pathways, and trails throughout the City.
From 2009 to 2017, the City has added 69,062 linear feet of sidewalks to connect neighborhoods and shopping centers as well as encourage safe pedestrian mobility. For a list of the completed sidewalk, click here.
Planning for Sidewalks
It takes planning to make sure our sidewalks are built to last and provide safe walkways for our residents and visitors. So how do we figure that out? During the planning phase, locations for future sidewalks and trails are identified by staff and prioritized based on resident feedback, the neighborhood or business area. Then, methods for funding and construction are also reviewed. The final step is submission to the City Council for final review and approval. Sidewalk and trail planning are part of the City's comprehensive planning. For more information on Southlake 2035 Southlake Comprehensive Plan, see the Comprehensive Planning page.
