The Development Services Department is responsible for the management of various land-use programs within the unincorporated areas of Denton County. This includes:
The federally mandated National Flood Insurance Program including:
Water quality and quantity
The Denton County Subdivision Rules and Regulations and developers’ compliance with County regulations
The Lake Ray Roberts Land Use Ordinance enforcement and its zoning cases
We are continually working to improve the development of our database framework to tie together all parts of Planning and Engineering for real-time distribution on the Landmark Internet Mapping Site of:
Lake Ray Roberts Zoning issues
Storm Water Permits
Subdivisions and Real Property
Existing databases are critical and are a high priority to this department, other County departments, and the public. Future development of the web-based data will include all permits and inspections to better serve the Public and other County offices.
