District Standards

The District has the power to establish architectural and landscaping standards and guidelines. The written consent of both the Cities of Richmond and Rosenberg is required to approve standards and guidelines for use in the District.

The Board formed a Standards Committee in June of 2006, made up of experienced professionals with the objective to develop a minimum set of Standards for new development and redevelopment in West Fort Bend.

The purpose of the standards is to encourage positive development and they form the foundation to create a uniquely identifiable experience within the corridors through the consistent use of landscaping and architectural design elements.

All development and redevelopment projects within the District boundaries will be governed by the Standards.  To view the current standards click on the District Development Standards link below.

Initial review and approval of development and redevelopment projects, for conformance with the standards of West Fort Bend Management District, are handled by the Cities of Richmond and Rosenberg respectively based on the location of the project.
