Planning for the Future of Bryan

As Bryan continues to grow as a community, the City has to have plans in place to manage that growth and assure that new infrastructure and development fits in with the character and quality of life that make Bryan unique. That’s where long-range planning comes in. The City’s Comprehensive Plan, and specific area plans, provide a vision to guide Bryan’s growth and development for the near term and for years to come.

The Development Services department, which includes the Planning and Building Services groups, plays a vital role in maintaining the vitality of the City of Bryan. The department provides local citizens and development professionals with the information and support they need to expeditiously and safely design and build quality commercial and residential structures throughout the city.

Core Services:

  • Maintenance and enforcement of all development related ordinances
  • Ensuring that all construction occurs in accordance with all applicable laws, ordinances, and building codes
  • Issuing permits and licenses for construction, renovation, garage sales, vendors, solicitors, and signs
  • Do I need a permit? / ¿Necesito Obtener un Permiso?
