Development Facilitation and Business Operations

​Development Facilitation and Business Operations

Strategic Business Unit


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.  

The overall objective of the Strategic Business Unit is to improve 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

The Strategic Business Unit is a resource to the development community.  Whether it's answering questions or helping them navigate the City's review process to ensure their project is approved in a timely manner.  We want to partner with the development community and welcome any ideas, suggestions and comments that can help us identify new enhancement opportunities.
