The Southlake City Council is creating a Carillon Parc Public Spaces Steering Committee. Its purpose is to advise the Council on the future of the Southlake Public Library and other public spaces at Carillon Parc, including a space for performing arts, a public park, and public art. The Council is grateful for the work of the Library Task Force earlier this year to get us to this point.
As part of the Carillon Parc Public Spaces project, City Council must work with specific boards and commissions with defined roles of advisement as characterized by their enabling ordinance or resolution. Those roles include project funding and financial plans, conceptual plans, and other matters as requested by City Council. The Steering Committee will help facilitate that process. For more information about the Steering Committee, please view the Steering Committee Charter below.
City Council will appoint City Council Members, one representative from each Board and Commission that has a role in the project, and three or four community members to serve on the Steering Committee. City Council and Board and Commission appointments will occur at the City Council meeting on September 6, 2022. Applications were accepted from community members who would like to be considered for an appointment on the Steering Committee through Sunday, September 18, 2022. The Council will make their appointments at the October 4, 2022 City Council meeting.
The application period for community member appointments for the Steering Committee has closed.
It is anticipated the Steering Committee will begin its work this fall and will continue working into 2023. Steering Committee members will be asked to attend meetings and work closely with other committee members to advise City Council and others on the Carillon Parc Public Spaces project.
Applications were accepted September 1 - 18. City Council is scheduled to make community member appointments to the Steering Committee at the regularly scheduled October 4, 2022, City Council meeting.
