Zoning Ordinance Update: Community Open House Feb 6

The City of Duncanville is beginning the process to update the Zoning Ordinance and is seeking stakeholder input at a Community Open House that will kick off the project. During the Community Open House, a presentation will be given to provide an overview of the project scope. Attendees will then participate in interactive activities to provide input on key issues and opportunities affecting the City through the Zoning Ordinance.

Zoning Ordinance Update Community Open House
Wednesday, February 6, 2019
6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
D.L. Hopkins Jr. Senior Center – 206 James Collins Boulevard, Duncanville

The zoning ordinance update project in 2019 has three primary goals:

  • to update and correct outdated regulations
  • address redevelopment and
  • align the ordinance with the vision established in the Comprehensive Plan.

A key achievement with updating the Zoning Ordinance would be removing regulatory barriers to redevelopment. The scope of the project is limited to the Zoning Ordinance and related development regulations. Planning consultants at Freese and Nichols are assisting the City with the Zoning Ordinance project.

Duncanville Zoning Ordinance Update – Project Website

With adoption of the Comprehensive Plan in September 2017, the City of Duncanville provided a framework for future development decisions and set the direction for change.  A primary action for implementing the comprehensive plan is a Zoning Ordinance revision. The City last initiated a major update of the Zoning Ordinance in 1998 and completed it in 2002.
