What you need to know about permitting in Houston:

  • The City of Houston does not have zoning codes in the same way almost every other AHJ in the USA has. There are still Land Development Ordinances that vary by area/region; however, there are no formal zones or zoning codes, and therefore no zoning permits or approvals required.
  • The State of Texas has its own additional form of ADA law called the "Elimination of Architectural Barriers Act" (EAB Act). This act requires all projects with a construction value over $50,000 to register with the Texas Department of Licensing & Regulation for a "EAB" review.
