The City of San Antonio’s Development Services Department is responsible for coordinating land and building development throughout the City. In partnership with other City departments, Development Services helps homeowners, business owners, and those in the commercial industry plan and execute development projects. Projects can be as simple as a kitchen renovation in a home and as complex as constructing a new building on an untouched piece of property.

As a department, we want to provide all the information you need to help you complete your project, including tips, contact information, status reports and performance updates. If you’re interested in learning more about Development Services, how we operate, or what we’re working on, we encourage you to review the following sections:
