In compliance with State orders, the University Park Community Development Department is committed to maintaining essential businesses, including construction activities.  Our objectives are to keep the community and workers as safe as possible.  City inspectors review each jobsite daily and will take action if these objectives are jeopardized.
The Community Development Department encourages social distancing on all job sites and the use of face masks when social distancing is not possible.  Inspectors are using proper personal protective equipment on occupied inspections and if residents have safety concerns, inspections can be rescheduled.
At this time, while all permitting and inspection services are available, Community Development offices at the Peek Service Center remain closed to the public.  For effective and efficient service, you are urged to use electronic communications.
Please contact Community Development at 214-987-5411 or permits@uptexas.org if you have questions.

Please take note of the following operational impacts for Community Development: 

  • Building inspection procedures have been modified. Call 214-987-5411 for more information.
  • The Peek Service Center located at 4420 Worcola is not accepting walk-in business.

The Community Development Department is responsible for enforcing the currently adopted building codes and ordinances of the City of University Park.  The department reviews all commercial and residential building requests.   Most new construction, remodeling, and additions require building permits.  The following links will help you determine if your project requires a permit, the necessary plans to obtain a permit, the permitting and inspection process, and any other requirements for your project.  If you are still unable to find the information you need for your particular project, please contact the Community Development Department at 214-987-5411.
