Development Ordinance

About the Code

Chapter 86 of the City of La Porte Code of Ordinances outlines the requirements for developers, applicants, engineers, surveyors, realtors and other persons interested and involved in the subdivision and development of land. Approved in 2016, this ordinance is a complete overhaul of the original Development Ordinance approved in 1985.

The ordinance was written in accordance with the City's Comprehensive Plan, and is used today to guide developers through the City's process for review and approval of proposed developments.

We encourage developers and potential developers to download and print the ordinance for reference during the development process.
