Development Services Improvement

Development Services departments oversee guidelines, procedures, and permits for all development, and they are responsible for floodplain management, construction activities, inspections, and subdividing in their respective jurisdictions. As Central Texas continues to experience over a decade of record growth and municipalities receive pressure from legislators and stakeholders, there is a growing need for municipalities to do more with less, improve transparency and communications, and track and manage data. FLAG’s development services improvement teams have the ability to translate between developers, engineers, and stakeholders to coordinate and implement process improvement initiatives, and develop performance metrics.
