​Comprehensive Ar​​​ea Plans (1999-present)​​​​​​

Comprehensive Area Plans are adopted by City Council to establish land use and development policy in specific areas. The Area Plans provide a greater level of detail than the forwardDallas! Comprehensive Plan.  They are intended to guide future zoning and land development decisions. At times, they result in City-initiated area-wide zoning changes. These plans typically address other comprehensive issues such as transportation, economic development, and urban design. These plans are developed through an inclusive community engagement process.

List of Comprehensive Area Plan

The Comprehensive Area Plans provides a list of plans from 1999 to the present. They are listed in alphabetical order, noted as City Initiated plans, Interagency Plans, or as Neighborhood-led plans.
City-initiated plans are undertaken in strategic areas where the city recognizes robust growth or forecasts high real-estate and economic potential.
Interagency Plans are done in collaboration with other public or non-profit entities that partially or fully fund the plan and typically play a lead role in its development.
Neighborhood-Led plans are typically led by proactive neighborhood organizations in collaboration with the City and adopted by City Council. The Planning and Urban Design Department provides technical assistance, review and guidance through the planning process and public adoption process. These plans are managed by the Planning and Urban Design Department.
