Project Type Descriptions:


  • Pre-submittal Consults: Prospective projects for which developers and/or other related applicants have met with city Development Review Committee (DRC) staff to discuss conceptual plans. These projects will remain on the Development Activity Report for 30 days from the project creation date.
  • Grading Plan: Required component of an Engineering Site Plan, Old Town Development Plan or Modified Site Plan which details earth cuts and fills. Sometimes, the Department of Engineering will issue stand-alone Grading permits for smaller projects for which full Site Plans are not required, or to developers who wish to begin grading the land before the complete Site Plan is approved by staff.
  • Preliminary Plat: A preliminary plan or drawing that represents a subdivider's plan of the subdivision, showing all boundaries and location of individual properties and streets. Preliminary plats must be approved by either the Planning and Zoning Commission or City Council, as applicable.
  • Final Plat: A plat of a subdivision which has been approved and a copy of which has been filed for record with the county clerk of Dallas or Denton County, Texas.
  • Engineering Site Plan: The development plan for one or more non-single-family lots upon which is shown all information required by Chapter 6 of the Lewisville Code of Ordinances; plans must be sealed by a state-licensed civil engineer.
  • Old Town Development Plan: The development plan of one or more non-single-family lots in the Old Town center business district, as established by the city zoning ordinance, upon which is shown all information required by Chapter 6 of the Lewisville Code of Ordinances.
  • Modified Site Plan: A city council approved site plan which does not meet all the provisions/requirements of an engineering site plan as required by Article III of the Lewisville Code of Ordinances and serves the purpose of and/or modifies an engineering site plan.
  • Construction Plans: Contain engineering data for the construction of all public improvements (water, sanitary sewer, storm sewer and paving) consistent with current city development standards and master plans.
  • Planned Development District: District which accommodates planned associations of uses developed as integral land use units such as industrial districts, offices, commercial or service centers, shopping centers, residential developments of multiple or mixed housing including, attached single-family dwellings or any appropriate combination of uses which may be planned, developed, or operated as integral land use units either by a single owner or a combination of owners. A Planned Development (PD) District may be used to permit new or innovative concepts in land utilization not permitted by other zoning districts in this chapter. While greater flexibility is given to allow special conditions or restrictions, which would not otherwise allow the development to occur, procedures are established herein to ensure against misuse of increased flexibility. The minimum area for a Planned Development (PD) District shall be five acres.
  • Special Use Permit (SUP): Provides a means for evaluating land uses identified in Chapter 17 of the Lewisville Code of Ordinances to ensure compatibility with adjacent properties. The intent of the special use permit process is to allow consideration of certain uses that would typically be incompatible or intensely dominate the area in which they are located, but may become compatible with the provision of certain conditions and restrictions.
