Realize Rowlett 2020


The City of Rowlett concluded Phase I of Realize Rowlett 2020 with the Comprehensive Plan (PDF) adopted by City Council on September 20, 2011.

Phase II was concluded on November 6, 2012 with the adoption of the Form Based Code (PDF) and Strategic Downtown Plan (PDF), which was subsequently amended on April 15, 2014 as a result of the North Shore Master Plan Initiative. To date seven key areas in the City have been rezoned to Form Based Districts and are governed by the Form Based Code. Detailed zoning documents can be viewed as follows: Woodside Living (PDF), Healthy Living (PDF), Signature Gateway (PDF), Downtown (PDF), Center for Commerce and Industry (PDF), North Shore (North) (PDF), and North Shore (South) (PDF).

Realize Rowlett 2020 is the City's Comprehensive Plan that guides decisions on all development. Phase I served to update the comprehensive plan, which had not been updated in 10 years. Phase II was about implementing the vision and led to the adoption of new zoning regulations in four key areas to ensure the vision for these areas was realized! Phase II was needed as the Realize Rowlett 2020 provides guidelines but not enforceable development regulations.

On November 5, 2013, the City Council authorized the North Shore Planning Initiative. The Consultant Team for this initiative is led by Jacobs and includes Ricker-Cunningham, Townscape, Inc. and Kimley Horn. The consultants will work with the City staff and the community to create a master plan for the North Shore.

Stay tuned as we continue on this journey to carry out the community's vision established in the Realize Rowlett 2020 Comprehensive Plan!
