Community Development

Community Development is comprised of several areas of responsibility consisting of Building Permits and Inspections, Code Enforcement, Storm Water Management, Planning & Zoning and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). 

Together, the department strives to ensure that all developers, builders, and residents within the City comply with city ordinances and State requirements in order to maintain the safety and quality of life that so many Friendswood citizens value and appreciate.  Our staff provides advanced planning and outstanding services to help improve mobility, drainage and utility systems, safe buildings, and a clean environment.
