Temporary Regulations for Businesses

The City of Southlake realizes that businesses are being severely impacted by the coronavirus (COVID-19) emergency. To assist businesses in succeeding and to create a safer environment for the public, the Southlake City Council approved new and existing temporary regulations (deregulations) until January 5, 2021. These regulations and activities include suspended enforcement of certain sign code, parking, outdoor patio, landscaping, sidewalk sale and outdoor sales regulations. After January 5, 2021, Southlake City Council will reconvene to consider extending the temporary regulations to a later date in 2021.

For more information about these specific deregulations, visit our Business Regulation Relief web page.
