On August 6, 2019, the Seguin City Council approved a Resolution authorizing a pause on accepting the filing of all new development plats and other plat related items.  The Resolution will be effective from and after 5:00 p.m. August 9, 2019 and continuing until 8:00 a.m. October 1, 2019.  This has been placed into effect to assist staff in revising the Unified Development Code and related processes with the new regulations adopted by the 86th State Legislative Session. 

The pause will not affect zoning applications or Site Plans that are not associated with platting.  Also, plats that were previously submitted will continue to be reviewed through our current processes.  The pause will only affect new plats that have not yet been submitted to the City.

Site Plan Process

The City has recently created a new Site Development Permit.  This permit does not add new regulations, but instead provides a convenient, streamlined tool for review and approval of items required for site development such as grading, landscaping, and site design. When a vacant tract is developed, or when a developed tract is changed, a Site Development Permit may be required.

Site Permit Application and checklist is available here. Applications for Site Permits should be submitted to Francis Serna in the Planning Department.
