***New Platting Review and Approval Procedures***

On March 21, 2017, the Rowlett City Council adopted Ordinance 009-17 (PDF) modifying Table 8.2-1 and Section 77-802 of the Rowlett Development Code relating to the review and approval procedures for Platting. The changes took effect immediately, and supersede the currently published requirements. Please refer to this Ordinance until it is codified by our Code publisher. For more information, please contact Daniel Acevedo, Planning Manager.


The Planning Division manages land use development by implementing the Comprehensive Plan and administering the Rowlett Development Code and Form Based Code, as well as the other plans, ordinances, policies, and procedures of the City. The division also prepares plans and/or studies that serve to guide future development. For more information, please refer to our FAQ's.
