Neighborhood Planning

The City of Irving's Neighborhood Planning initiative is a grassroots outreach effort to help residents achieve a desired future for their neighborhoods.

For more information on forming a Neighborhood Association, contact the Communications Department at (972) 721-7600.  

Once your Neighborhood Group is organized, the Planning and Zoning division is eager to assist residents in creating a vision for the neighborhood's future. Formalizing this vision helps set goals and incorporate them into the city's long-range plans.
