Unified Development CodeUnified Development Code (UDC)

The UDC combines all development-related regulations into one document. The UDC is a priority that was first identified in the Rosenberg 2035 Comprehensive Plan in 2015. Its primary purposes are easing navigation, interpretation, and implementation of City regulations for customers and staff alike.

Steps When Requesting a Pre-Development Meeting

Please fill out the Pre-Development Information application (PDF) when requesting a pre-development meeting. The information provided will aid staff in more effectively preparing for the meeting.

Pre-development meetings have two available timeslots; 9 and 9:30 am. The meetings last 30 minutes. It is advised that you bring any available documents, plans, drawings, etc. to the meeting, and provide any information regarding your proposed development ahead of time.

These dates are when all necessary staff are likely to be available to assist with the project. Requests for other times are dependent on staff and the City Engineer's availability and are preferred to be requested one week in advance so that multiple schedules can be coordinated.
