Planning & Zoning

COVID-19 Status Update

To protect everyone’s health during the COVID-19 pandemic; our Open Burleson In-Person plan is in motion. Above all else, we want to continue to provide a safe working environment for the residents of Burleson, the public, and our City teams.

We have transitioned back into the office full-time. We have resumed the acceptance of new submittals in accordance with our normal schedule for in-person only submittals with the required hard copies and items per the 2019-2020 Development Application Submittal Guidelines & Requirements for all Case items. You will still be able to drop items off in our drop-off area if needed. At this time, we are discontinuing the online submittals.

We welcome your continued support and patience. If you have questions, please feel free to contact us at

Burleson is a rapidly growing community with new developments appearing every day. The planning division’s goal is to assist City leaders, citizens, and developers in guiding and shaping the future by managing the influx of growth to ensure that Burleson continues to be an exciting community to "Live, Work and Play - Today and Tomorrow."


The mission of Planning and Zoning is to establish conceptually viable planning principles and policies to help guide and manage development patterns in the City. This division supports the City Manager’s Office, City Council, and other City boards and commissions on matters affecting planning, growth and development in the City. The division also coordinates planning and development-related matters with landowners, developers, and other City departments and agencies.
