Development, Permits, & Inspections

The goal of the Development Services Department is to guide the development in the City of Manvel and the extraterritorial jurisdiction by advocating for a long-term, comprehensive approach to planning and development while providing for strategic and complimentary new growth. The Department administers planning, zoning, and building permits and performs building inspections. We also serve as support staff to the Planning, Development, and Zoning Commission and Zoning Board of Adjustment.
