Our Mission

To provide the development community of developers,builders, homeowners, and business owners high quality competitively priced services including, code interpretation, permits, and inspections to protect public health, safety and welfare through personalized, prompt customer service.

Now the home to over 100,000 residents, the City of Tyler continues to grow as a retail, commercial, medical, educational and retirement hub for east Texas. As a result, old and outdated development processes are inadequate to handle the enormous growth Tyler continues to experience. Accordingly, the purpose of the newly created Development Services Department is to improve the effectiveness, responsiveness and efficiency of plat review, development review and building permit/inspection process.

The Development Services Department is composed of two divisions that are responsible for enforcement of various City codes related to the development of property within the City of Tyler. Plan review is performed by Development Services to assure that development is in accordance with City. Inspections are performed by the Building Inspection Division to assure compliance with City of Tyler codes related to building construction and adapted building codes.
