The 2019 City of Dallas Street and Drainage Design Manuals and Street Process Manual are all in effect for projects with preliminary plats that were approved by City Plan Commission on or after October 1, 2019. If the infrastructure construction is not included in a city-approved private development contract within two years from the preliminary plat approval date, then the infrastructure must be redesigned using the most current criteria.
