The Planning & Zoning Division can provide a Zoning Verification Letter on department letterhead. This letter will confirm a property's zoning district and provide information about the surrounding zoning, outstanding zoning code cases, Conditional Use Permits, special exceptions, or zoning variances, as relevant. If available, a copy of the approved site plan will also be provided.
The Zoning Verification Letter will not verify whether a subject property is in full compliance with the zoning ordinance. Additionally, it will not include Certificates of Occupancy or information about non-zoning code cases. To request copies of Certificates of Occupancy or fire and building code violations, you can make an Open Records Request through the City Secretary’s Office.
There is a $50 fee for each Zoning Verification Letter. You will need to request one letter per property. Please provide the parcel ID from Dallas CAD (map link) or Kaufman CAD (map link).
