About Development Services


Modified Operations:
We Are Ready To Serve You.

Based on the Order by the City of Austin and Travis County to “Stay Home, Mask, and Otherwise Be Safe”, all in-person customer services remain suspended. Most of our services are still available by phone, video conference, email and our online portal, Austin Build + Connect (AB+C). For information on our modified services, please visit our DSD-COVID-19 page.


We assist homeowners, business owners, and contractors when they build, demolish, remodel or perform any type of construction to ensure compliance with applicable city and building codes. Every development project is unique and will have different requirements, that's why we are here to help you. Together, we'll build a better and safer Austin!

We provide the following services:

  • Conduct timely plan reviews and inspections.
  • Protect and renew Austin’s tree canopy.
  • Properly steward financial resources.
  • Provide excellent customer service.
