In 2007 – 08, the City of Southlake undertook an update of the Major Corridors Urban Design Plan based on the recommendations of the Southlake 2025 Plan.
In addition to safety and efficiency benefits, the Urban Design Plan is intended to identify tremendous design and development opportunities to deine and enhance Southlake Boulevard, the cityâ€™s main commercial corri- dor. The Urban Design study is also intended to lever- age and complement private development and invest- ment by making the public realm a design priority.
One of the major outcomes of this plan was to not only identify and prioritize public improvements, but also identify funding options to implement them.
During her employment with the City of Southlake, Ms. Narayana, Principal of Livable Plans and Codes was the project manager for the initiative on behalf of the city.
