​Dallas is a vibrant, economically diverse city that is among the fastest growing large metros in the country.

This rapid growth and high volume of projects have resulted in more (and often times increasingly complex) permit requests from the development community.  Because of the higher permit volume and complexity, the City of Dallas formed VeloCITY Dallas.

The overall objective of VeloCITY Dallas is to im​prove the City of Dallas' development review process by:

  • ​Acting as project managers for the development community, guiding projects through the review process​
  • Improving communication between customers and City employees
  • Improving efficiencies of operations
  • Establishing a consistent and navigable system that ensure development projects are reviewed in a timely manner
  • Establishing metrics to measure performance
