Since 1909, when the City of Boerne was incorporated, growth management has been a complex issue. It is the Planning and Community Development Department’s responsibility to work with individuals, developers, and city staff to implement city policy while facilitating community objectives.
Those responsibilities include:
Processing requests for proposed development and zoning
Plans for development and requests for zoning are reviewed and then processed for review by the Planning and Zoning Commission; the Planning and Zoning Commission then approves those requests or recommends them to the City Council
Processing requests for the Historic Landmark Commission that individuals or businesses located in the Historic District propose for development or change
The Historic Landmark Commission approves those requests or recommends them to the City Council
