TOWNSCAPE’s ongoing planning for Rockwall seeks to preserve its historic character while accommodating one of the fastest county growth rates in the United States. The Rockwall Comprehensive Plan sets out specific policies for enhancing the community’s “hometown” qualities, and for preserving open space throughout the City. It identifies specific policies for focusing development in the downtown and other mixed use centers while preserving scenic rural settings. It sets the stage for an overhaul of the zoning and subdivision regulations and for accommodating transit in the future.

TOWNSCAPE implemented the Comprehensive Plan by preparing a new Unified Development Code and corridor overlay development standards, a new Downtown Plan and a form-based Code. All of these have been adopted and are guiding the community’s development.
