Draft Future Land Use Plan!

Understanding that North Richland Hills is more than 90% developed, the vacant land that remains has significant importance.  An appropriate mix of land uses is also a major component to a successful community. A preliminary draft of the proposed 2018 Land Use Plan Map and descriptions of the various land use designations are available now.

Strategic Plan Committee

In February 2017, North Richland Hills City Council approved the creation of the Strategic Plan Committee, charged to update the City's comprehensive plan. The plan is an extension of the City Council's 2017 Goals & Objectives and will include recommendations for economic growth, revitalization and beautification of the City over the next 10 years.

The Committee meets on the second Thursday of each month to develop policy recommendations that best reflect the community’s vision. The Committee’s recommendations will be forwarded to the Planning & Zoning Commission and City Council for review and consideration in late 2018.

The Strategic Plan Committee includes three City Council Members, two Planning & Zoning Commission Members, ten members at large and one alternate.
