In 2016, the City of Southlake adopted its Economic Development Master Plan which included a strategic focus on supporting existing businesses through various business retention efforts. One key element of these efforts is the City’s business engagement program where business visits are used to build relationships with local businesses, understand how the City can provide support and learn about challenges and concerns.
Through this program, the city staff visits with businesses in a couple of ways. First, all new businesses receive a welcome visit from a member of our economic development team. This visit establishes a point of contact with our office and also provides an opportunity to deliver a helpful resource packet. Second, our team also works with established businesses to schedule on-site visits that include members of our Community Enhancement and Development Corporation (CEDC), the Southlake City Council and City Economic Development & Tourism staff.
If you’d like to schedule some time for us to visit your place of business in Southlake, reach out to us and we’d be more than happy to schedule a visit to learn more about you and your business.
