Southlake was named a Platinum Texas Scenic City in 2022. This is the highest designation offered by Scenic Texas and is a reflection of the City Council's commitment and support to the planning process.
The Scenic City Certification Program was developed and implemented to establish a foundation of cohesive scenic standards and land planning practices that demonstrate the protection of environmentally sensitive areas and the provision of shared community spaces, parks, walkable sidewalks, and scenic roadways. Southlake's Planning Department works tirelessly to ensure we meet these standards year after year.
