Why the WOCAP Matters

The area plan will be a document that the City of Dallas uses to inform its future policy decisions. Once passed, it will be considered to represent the “will of the community”. This plan determines whether a piece of property will contain a single-family home, or a multifamily home. It outlines what types of businesses will be permitted in certain areas and in general what types of building will be allowed to be built in certain areas.

At this time, the best way for you to provide your feedback on the plan, is by filling out the survey that is linked below. The city will take this feedback into consideration as it prepares the final version of the plan.
