The Fall 2023 updated UDC Development Manual includes adjustments to the following: All Subdivision-Related Checklists, Appeal Checklist, new sub-case type for Tree Removal & Pruning Permit, new case-types for Residential Artificial Turf Permit and Courthouse View Waiver, and updated language around the application process for Revisions (Preliminary Plats, Site Development Plans, and Construction Plans).

The UDC Development Manual is adopted as an integral component of the Unified Development Code through Section 1.11. The manual is intended to provide applicants with the information and forms necessary to file a complete application required by the UDC. The manual contains all forms, fees, and guides for each type of permit processed by the Planning Department, plus meeting dates and other important information.
The Development Manual was revised in September 2019 to reflect the changes to the development process in response to HB 3167. With the most recent Texas Legislative Session, we have since revised the Development Manual to reflect the changes to the development process in response to HB 3699. For more information, please visit out Texas Legislative Updates webpage. Since September 2019, the Development Manual has been updated in March 2022, October 2022, December 2022 and May 2023. The most recent Fall 2023 updates have been posted on September 4, 2023, and will be effective for all applications submitted on or after September 18, 2023.
Please contact the Planning Department at email@example.com or at 512-930-3575 if you have any questions or comments regarding the updates posted.
