Southlake Program for the Involvement of Neighborhoods (SPIN)
SPIN meetings (Southlake Program for the Involvement of Neighborhoods) are hosted about twice a month to provide community members with 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.
Residents are notified about SPIN meetings through the City's social media channels, including Facebook and Nextdoor. They are also notified through community outreach phone calls. Residents also can watch the meeting live online and then watch the recording once it is posted to the Southlake TV player.
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 Prater, 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 Prater at the email shown on the bottom of the page, or by phone (817) 748-8070.
The Current Agendas and Meetings page will keep you updated on current SPIN Town Hall Forums. Look for "SPIN" meetings about half-way down the page.
Development Process Information
Following a SPIN meeting, 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 progress.
