In August 2021, the City of Dallas launched the ForwardDallas
Comprehensive Land Use Update, an inclusive process to update our citywide future land use vision as
adopted in the 2006 ForwardDallas Comprehensive Plan. Land is a critical and limited resource in Dallas. How we plan for and use this resource has a profound impact on our quality of life. The ForwardDallas update comes at a time of great change for Dallas, the nation, and the world. The crises of COVID-19, climate change, and racial injustice have highlighted the need to reevaluate existing land use policies and adopt new, more equitable and sustainable strategies. We are engaging the community on the challenging issues of today and defining strategies and actions to shape how Dallas develops for years to come!
