​Current Planning-Authorized Hearings

​The City of Dallas Development Code provides that either the City Council or City Plan Commission may authorize a hearing to consider proper zoning in an area. This differs from typical zoning applications in that property owners have not made an application to change the zoning, the City Council or City Plan Commission initiates a process whereby proper zoning can be determined. Once initiated the same requirements for public hearings apply. There will be a public hearing before the City Plan Commission, and a second public hearing in front of City Council prior to a decision being made on a zoning proposal which has been initiated through the authorized hearing process.
