Long-Range Plans

Farmers Branch Comprehensive Plans


The purpose of a comprehensive plan is to develop an overall vision for the development of the City of Farmers Branch, to ensure preservation and enhancement of the existing amenities, and to encourage efficient and beneficial growth. The Farmers Branch Comprehensive Plan was adopted in 1989. The Comprehensive Plan has been updated in three phases based on geographic areas, East Side Plan, West Side Plan and Central Area Plan. 

  1. Central Area Plan
  2. East Side Plan
  3. West Side Plan
  4. IH-35E Corridor Vision Study

The Central Area Plan was adopted by City Council in 2012 to guide and direct future development decisions made by City staff, elected officials and all other decision makers. This document is intended to present a comprehensive, area-wide framework for the Central Area. This is a flexible long-range planning tool that guides the growth and physical development of the Central Area of Farmers Branch for 20 years.
