City Council approves updates to Landscape, Tree Protection ordinances

The Round Rock City Council adopted the new Landscape Ordinance and revised Tree Protection and Preservation Ordinance at its March 8 meeting.

The previous ordinances had been in place for several years and were in need of evaluation and updating. The new ordinances address changing development patterns, water conservation, development costs, and ease of use for design professionals and staff. The City’s Development Philosophy: Making it Happen served as the key guide during the amendment process.

The City would like to thank the Technical Advisory Committee and the public at large for their input and advice. These new ordinances could not have become a reality without your support and insight! Here are links to the new ordinances: Landscape Ordinance (PDF) | Tree Protection & Preservation Ordinance (PDF).

The City Council has conveyed the importance of establishing targeted performance measures for development review staff. The intent is to set high goals and identify areas where improvements can be made. Below are the target measurements and performance of the Development Services Division for the past three months. This info has been assembled from surveys, standard site plans, small project site plans, and subdivision improvement plan submittals.
