The ordinance adding CHAPTER 8A, “Boarding Home Facilities,” to the Dallas City Code; amending Chapter 33, “Personal Care Facilities,” of the Dallas City Code; was amended by the Dallas City Council on May 27, 2015.

The city council believes it is in the interest of the public health, safety and welfare to regulate and license boarding home facilities and to adopt, with certain modifications, the model standards published by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission.

The city council believes the standards in this ordinance will provide adequate standards to protect the health and safety of residents of boarding home facilities, protect these residents from persons who try to take advantage of them, ensure that adequate fire-rescue and police personnel and vehicles are available to serve these residents, and help the city identify and facilitate appropriate responses for residents who may require special assistance during an emergency or at any other time.
