Town of Northlake

Northlake’s wide open spaces and prime location in the direct path of growth offer abundant opportunities. Northlake has been preparing to take advantage of these opportunities by initiating several planning projects and updating development ordinances to best position the Town for growth and encourage quality development.


Northlake’s vision as outlined in its Comprehensive Plan is to benefit from this prime location and growth potential to build a prosperous economy while preserving the rural character Northlake’s founders sought to preserve so that Northlake continues to be a livable community with a healthy environment.
