DRIPPING SPRINGS, TEXAS – April 6, 2021 – With the rapid growth of the City of Dripping Springs, the City is launching Preserve Dripping Springs, a process to review and update the current Zoning Code to create a user-friendly, more efficient Unified Development Code. Preserve Dripping Springs will improve and streamline the current development process in the City and bring an opportunity to promote responsible, sustainable development that preserves and enhances the City’s character.
Preserve Dripping Springs will help transition the City to a Unified Development Code rather than having various land development related ordinances (zoning, subdivision, signs, etc.) dispersed throughout the Code. It will incorporate the City’s Land Development Ordinances with a goal to preserve Dripping Springs’ unique character. The Unified Development Code will include updates to all regulations relating to land development, such as building heights, landscaping, street design, lot and block size requirements, use placement, density, and stormwater management. These regulations can help determine what can be built, where it can be built, and how much can (and cannot) be built.
City Senior Planner Amanda Padilla says the process is needed with all the growth, “The City is at a crucial moment in development. This is our opportunity to look at previous and current development while looking to the future of the community when it comes to density, roads, business, and more. Now is the time to preserve the Dripping Springs character while looking toward future developments.”
An important part of Preserve Dripping Springs is getting input and feedback from citizens and business owners, so the City aligns land development with what is important to the Dripping Springs Community. To help with that input, the City is conducting a survey for the community. The survey can be found on the Preserve Dripping Springs section of the City’s website:
The survey is available in English and Spanish and will be available through May 3. All citizens and business owners in the city limits and extraterritorial jurisdiction, as well as the development community, are encouraged to participate in the survey.
The City also plans to have more public outreach events once they are further in the process, with plans to complete the Unified Development Code in Spring of 2022.
