Public Hearings are a secondary and complementary process necessary when re-platting lots or property that are currently, or have been previously, restricted to single-family uses. Subdivision platting in the state of Texas is governed under two chapters of the Texas Local government code. Chapter 212 applies to properties located inside of incorporated cities or ETJ, and Chapter 232 for properties located within the county. Sections of these chapters outline and set forth specific guidelines and process for modifying or amending restricted properties. Public hearings have specific notification and time requirements, including newspaper postings, mailers, and public forums to allow the public to oppose or support a re-development. Knowing and understanding the needs, timelines, fees, and process for public hearing is a Windrose speciality and we successfully represent dozens of projects every year to navigate this time consuming and complicated process for our clients.
