 Our Vision Statement
The Community Development Department serves to protect public health, safety and welfare and ensures that growth is performed in a responsible manner to
preserve the integrity of the City, while fostering an environment of 
collaboration with the development community.

The Community Development Department has produced a Development Guide to assist local landowners, architects, engineers, developers, and other interested parties to understand the significant phases of the development and building process in the City of Tomball and its extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ).
