Following adoption of the Lake Tyler Master Plan and since November 2011, construction on City-owned (leased) property on Lake Tyler, as well as construction over the water and within marginal lands on Lake Tyler East, requires permitting through the City of Tyler Development Services Department. The permitting process begins with an application to Development Services located at 423 W. Ferguson, Tyler, Texas and requires both a Lake Tyler / Lake Tyler East Approval for Construction Form as well as the appropriate Building Permit Application Form. Both forms are conveniently available in the Development Services office and are available for download here.

All construction must comply with requirements of the City of Tyler Code of Ordinances Chapter 19, Article VI and the City of Tyler Building Codes, Chapter 6, Article I. A link to the Code of Ordinances can be found in the Documents / Forms section on this page (right).

Lake Tyler East Residents
The City of Tyler does not own the residential lots surrounding Lake Tyler East. However, the City of Tyler does still have a responsibility to monitor and maintain the water quality of the lake. Therefore, the Smith County Court provided a ruling on the responsibility of the City, as well as the responsibilities of the property owners surrounding Lake Tyler East, in order to help the City maintain the water quality of the Lake.

In the Documents / Forms section of this page, there is a link to the Smith County Court document, also commonly referred to as "Exhibit B", that is applicable to all property owners with lakefront property on Lake Tyler East. Property owners on Lake Tyler East should pay particular attention to Paragraph (u) which specifies the requirements to register the property in their name with the City of Tyler. A Registration Form is also provided in the Documents / Forms section of this page.
