Development Services

Development Services includes Planning, Land Development, Building Safety, and Food and Health Safety Divisions. Together, these divisions provide growth management and development review, neighborhood preservation and revitalization, property inspection and maintenance, and other programs and business development services intended to ensure the healthy, safety, and quality of life of residents.

To help slow the spread of COVID-19, the Development Services Center (215 E. McKinney St.) is temporarily closed to the public. Until the situation changes, permit and development applications will only be accepted online.
Planning and Zoning Commission meetings have temporarily been cancelled. Until Planning and Zoning Commission meetings are set to resume, the City of Denton will not accept new plat applications, as state regulations require Planning and Zoning Commission action on plats within defined time periods.
Health and Building Inspections will proceed as usual in the field.
Information will be updated on this webpage as things progress. If you need immediate assistance, please call (940) 349-8541 or (940) 349-8360.
