Zoning Ordinance Update - City of Burleson
The City of Burleson is requesting Statements of Qualifications (SOQs) from qualified, multidisciplinary
professionals in the fields of urban planning, architecture, historic preservation, Form Based Codes, community
development and computer visualization to assist in the preparation of a new Zoning Ordinance and design
The current Zoning Ordinance was adopted 2010, and has been amended periodically from time to time. In its
current form, the Ordinance fails to meet the City’s needs in several areas. It is a conventional use based,
“Euclidean” model ordinance that segregates uses and offers little guidance on how streets and buildings will
function, and on the form or human interaction elements of neighborhood development. The City desires
professional planning and zoning assistance to explore and develop a practical and useable hybrid ordinance that
incorporates the goals identified in the City’s Comprehensive Plan update effort, currently underway.
The City’s Comprehensive Plan identifies 20 goals for Burleson’s future. The plan outlines a general growth
and development vision for the City and several specific goals with certain recommendations intended to assist
in the accomplishment of that goal. Staff has included our draft Comprehensive Plan goals still under
consideration by the City Council, which should be adopted by the time the contract is really underway.
