Tracking your project
The City of Round Rock has recently implemented an automated system for tracking land development, building permits and code enforcement activities. This on-line system is accessible to project applicants or their representatives, and allows them to see the progress of development projects, access review comments, schedule inspections and more.

The predevelopment conference is an opportunity for the applicant to review all aspects of the project (annexation, zoning, drainage, utilities, etc.) with review staff, and to ask and questions about items that may be critical to the projectís feasibility. Staff will explain the cityís requirements and identify what additional studies or analyses may be necessary.
To schedule a predevelopment conference, please complete a predevelopment conference request form and email to Kamie Fitzgerald, or contact the Development Services Office at 512-218-7043 if you have questions. Please allow as much lead time as possible to ensure that appropriate staff are available and have time to review any supplementary documents.
Plats in the ETJ
If the proposed subdivision is outside City Limits and annexation is not proposed, please review the Platting in the ETJ Memo for additional County requirements.
If the subdivision includes improvements, they must be completed or secured before the final plat can be recorded. For further information about subdivision improvements or posting fiscal, contact the Development Services Office at 512-218-7043.
PDS will check the recordation materials for completeness and bring the plat to and from the county clerk. Expect two to three weeks for the County to record the plat. Final plats must be recorded before they expire (two years after approval). Application information for plat recordation is posted on the Development Permits & Applications page.
