***Effective September 1, 2019***
The City of Rowlett Community Development Department will now only accept applications for plats and plan submittals and resubmittals based on the following schedule:
The Zoning & Development Handbook (PDF) is provided to assist the public with the City’s various Zoning and Development processes. The goal of the Zoning & Development Handbook is to consolidate all of the prior development applications and checklists into one central document.
Please contact a staff member or continue to consult City Ordinances for the most recent rules and regulations. The City Council also adopted a Form Based Code (PDF) on November 6, 2012, for specific areas in the City. To date, the following areas are required to follow the standards in the FBC: Woodside Living (PDF), Healthy Living (PDF), Signature Gateway (PDF) and Downtown (PDF). Please contact staff if you have specific questions regarding these areas or are interested in rezoning property to a Form Based District. We look forward to working with you. Please feel free to contact us at 972-463-3949 if you have any questions.
