 Revisions to landscape, tree ordinances go to P&Z
Print

The City's Development Services Division has been rewriting the rules that require landscaping and trees on development sites. After months of public input, updated drafts of the ordinances will be presented to the Planning and Zoning Commission at a public hearing and a recommendation vote at its Feb. 15 meeting.

Input from the public, Planning and Zoning Commission and Round Rock City Council has been incorporated into the draft landscape ordinance (PDF) and draft tree protection ordinance (PDF). 

The original ordinances have been in place for several years and need to be updated. The City is seeking to improve these rules to address changing development patterns, address water conservation and make the ordinances easier to follow.

The City sought input from the public last May at an open house to help guide the ordinance rewrite. A technical advisory committee comprised of local development and landscape design professionals also provided input. The Planning and Zoning Commission held two workshops on the revisions, and the City Council and Planning and Zoning Commission held a joint work session in November (video).
