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.

Implementing the Standards

All development and redevelopment projects within the District boundaries will be governed by the Standards.  Standards are being developed by corridor and to view the current standards click on the District Development Standards link below.

Developers and redevelopers whose projects fall within the boundaries of the District need to contact the District for review and approval of plans prior to the commencement of work.
