Step 1: Planning for Sidewalks

Sidewalks in Southlake are guided by a master plan that includes recommendations for sidewalk and trail segments across the City.  Most recently, as part of the Southlake 2030 master planning, initiatives, City leaders adopted the Mobility Master Plan, which included recommendations for the ongoing development of the City’s sidewalk network. 

As part of the Mobility Master Plan, the Council approved the Pathways Master Plan Map (January 2014). This map shows planned segments and their characteristics and guides the development of the annual sidewalk budget, as well as requirements for private development.

Using the master plan as a guide, sidewalks ultimately get built one of four ways:

  1. As an element of City road or park project.  When a City project is designed, all elements identified in the City’s Comprehensive Plan are included in the project when possible., including where the desired sidewalk or trail segments throughout the City are.
  2. Citywide Pathway Program.  The staff works with the Council to prioritize a priority project list. Evaluated criteria include available right-of-way, the feasibility of construction, proximity to schools and parks, and potential connections between neighborhoods and different land uses. 
  3. Privately constructed.  Developers are required to incorporate sidewalks identified in our comprehensive master plan as well as interior sidewalks included in our typical street sections.
