The Texas legislature recently passed legislation related to the processing of plats and plans associated with plats. House Bill (H.B.) 3167 mandates several new guidelines for the approval and/or denial of plats, as well as the timeframe for such actions. These new laws become effective September 1, 2019.
Therefore, in light of this new law, the Community Development Department will be revising its processes and timelines for plat and plan approval.
Like other municipalities in the state, in the coming weeks we will be developing a new submittal schedule, plat/plan application checklist, and general submittal/review procedures. This information will be available on the City’s website, and as always, in our office.
