Boards and Commissions

Planning and Zoning Commission

The Planning and Zoning Commission is an advisory body that hears and makes recommendations on matters related to land use, zoning, and platting. The Commission generally meets on the third Tuesday of every month at 6pm in Council Chambers at Town Hall – 5300 Belt Line Road, Dallas, TX 75254. Current agendas will be posted here 72 hours prior to the meeting. You can get a complete list of current commissioners here.

Board of Zoning Adjustment

The Board of Zoning Adjustment (BZA) is an independent, quasi-judicial body whose membership is appointed by the City Council. It is empowered to grant exceptions to the Town’s Zoning Ordinance that are in the public interest and where, due to unique conditions that may exist on a property, a literal enforcement of the Zoning Ordinance would result in unnecessary hardship or prohibit an owner from all reasonable use of the land. The BZA meets on an as-needed basis to hear appeals from property owners. To request a variance from Board of Zoning Adjustment please use the Zoning and Land Development Application and provide the information listed in the packet.

Interested in serving on a Board or Commission?  Applications will be available in the fall for terms beginning January 1.

Special Project Committees

From time to time, the City Council will appoint Special Project Committees to study specific issues.  In the past, Special Project Committees have been created to give input on the redevelopment of Addison Circle, the Parks and Recreation Master Plan, and Belt Line Road 1.5.  The creation of these committees and the request for applications is shared in the weekly newsletter and posted on the website.
