City of Duncanville Requests Community Input on Zoning Ordinance Update
The City of Duncanville began reviewing the zoning ordinance in February 2019 with a community open house, online survey, and stakeholder interviews. Since that time, City Council, City Staff, the Planning & Zoning Commission, and the City’s consultant team have collaborated to develop a revised draft of the zoning ordinance.
The zoning ordinance establishes regulations for:
- The land-use types that are allowed in various zoning districts;
- The minimum lot size, width, and depth;
- The maximum building height and minimum setbacks from property lines;
- The minimum amount of parking required for each use type and general design requirements for parking areas;
- The minimum amount of landscaping required for developments;
- The placement and the maximum size and number of accessory structures that can be located on a property; and
- The procedures for addressing nonconforming uses and structures.
The zoning map designates the zoning districts that apply to properties throughout the City. The new zoning ordinance will combine some existing districts. The draft ordinance is available for review on the website below.

The meeting is being hosted in partnership with the consultant Freese and Nichols, Inc., which has offices around the country and throughout the State.
A public hearing was held before the Planning & Zoning Commission on Monday, February 8, 2021, at 7:00 p.m., and the next, before the City Council, will be held on Tuesday, March 2, 2020, at 7:00 p.m., in a virtual conference projected from City Hall, 203 E.
