Department Functions
The City of Farmers Branch Planning Department plays an instrumental role in the long-term and day-to-day success of the city. The planning department does this by pursuing specific planning principles. These principles are central to all planning efforts.

The planning department:
  • Manages the city's land development process relative to design review, site planning, specific use permits, and zoning
  • Prepares the city's comprehensive plan and district plans such as the recently adopted central area plan. Other district plans include the west side plan and station area plan
  • Prepares policies, programs and ordinances relating to development, conducts demographic analysis and engages in special planning studies relating to economic development, environment, urban design, transportation, and housing
  • Offers extensive e-planning, public outreach and education programs to encourage greater involvement in planning activities
