Zoning Verification Letters provide information to lenders and attorneys about a property’s address and legal description, development potential and compliance with current zoning ordinances. For copies of documents such as Certificates of Occupancy and approved Site Development Permits please submit an Open Records Request to the City Clerk.

Most letters can be completed within a few working days (often while the check is in transit). The pdf copy will be emailed and a hard copy mailed (1st class unless otherwise instructed) to the party the requestor asks it to be sent to.
If you do not require a signed letter, you can look up the current zoning of a property using CityView, Round Rock’s internet map server. You may also ask Planning & Development Services staff. There is no charge for this service.
Copies of all Planned Unit Developments (PUDs) and amendments are available online. These documents have been edited for length and may not include the entire ordinance adopting the PUD, but do include the entire development agreement.
