The City of Southlake was recently awarded the 2013 Comprehensive Planning Award for the Southlake 2030 Comprehensive Plan from the Texas Chapter of the American Planning Association (TXAPA) at the annual conference held recently in Galveston. The Comprehensive Planning Award allows the TXAPA to promote the work of planners in the State of Texas by recognizing exemplary work at the annual state conference. The accomplishment shows the value of planners and the planning profession throughout the state. This award is given to an outstanding comprehensive plan addressing the development of an area, town, city, county or region in the state.

The Planning & Development Services Department was also recently awarded  the Planning Excellence Award for the 8th consecutive year by the TXAPA. The TXAPA established a program recognizing planning excellence in cities throughout the state. Evaluation criteria includes the level of training of Planning Commissioners and professional staff, professional qualifications of the planning staff, breadth and currency of master plan components, and completion of other planning related programs.
