    Parking is available at the Fort Worth Convention Center Garage located at 1200 Houston St., directly across the street from the Convention Center. The free parking voucher is only available for this parking garage.

    What is Zoning?

    What is Zoning?

    The city promotes orderly growth and land use while protecting existing property owners by grouping together compatible development — a practice known as zoning.

    Before land is developed in the city, it must be zoned and platted. Property in the city’s extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ) is subject to platting only. The Zoning Commission reviews all zoning requests to provide recommendation for City Council, who will approve or deny the request. 

    The Zoning regulations and districts are adopted to help implement the Comprehensive Plan and its policies. The policies address land use, transportation and infrastructure, economic development, urban design, housing, historic preservation, environmental quality, parks and recreation, and other topics
