Land development within the City of Friendswood, depending on the size and nature of the project, involves several steps. When a landowner desires to develop property within the City, the first step of the process should be to arrange a meeting with the Development Review Committee (DRC). This informal meeting allows the developer to gather information pertinent to the proposed development and to discuss the City’s development process.
Staff can assist by discussing the process requirements for the specific type of development, identifying any required applications or fees to be submitted and by providing input that can potentially expedite the overall process. The staff can also provide an overall timeline for each step in the process, which depends largely on when the process starts and what steps are needed.
Schedule a Meeting
DRC Meetings are held on Wednesday mornings at 9 am, 10 am, and 11 am. To schedule a meeting or check for availability, please call 281-996-3290.
