You are being notified of this public hearing because the Denton Development Code (DDC) update will impact Denton residents, businesses, and property owners. There is a new lineup of Zoning Districts proposed. Zoning Districts specify the areas where residential, commercial, industrial, recreational, and other land uses may occur and the standards they must be built with.
If you live in a residential area, the City is renaming your zoning district. Districts are going from Neighborhood Residential districts (NR-#) to Residential districts (R-#). If you own an existing home, your property will not be impacted.
As we update the Development Code, we are renaming, eliminating, consolidating, and creating new zoning districts.
Properties that have a designation of Conditioned Zoning are properties that when the property was zoned or rezoned in the past, the zoning was approved with conditions. If you would like to know what those conditions are, please email us.

The City is matching the existing zoning of properties as closely as possible, with a few exceptions. If you do not agree with the proposed zoning of your property, you can email your comment/request to us, and staff will review and analyze it as part of future zoning changes. These comments will be provided to the Planning and Zoning Commission and City Council on your behalf.
