Development Process Improvement

A clear and streamlined process for growth and development helps developers big and small participate in building unique, inviting, valuable places that in turn contribute to the vibrancy of our neighborhoods and city centers alike. TREC was instrumental in instituting a quarterly stakeholder meeting with City staff to address ongoing challenges and opportunities within the development process.

In the next two years, the City of Dallas’ Sustainable Development and Construction department is facilitating more than $7.5 billion in permit valuations related to construction activity, issuing more than 65,000 building permits, conducting at least 400,000 inspections, issuing more than 10,000 Certificates of Occupancy, and processing at least 500 zoning changes.
